Cycling is a popular sport in Sochi, and its popularity is only growing. The infrastructure for the different cycling styles is also on the grow. One of the notable facilities are the downhill bicycle tracks at Gornaya Karusel (Alpine Carousel) resort, which begin at an elevation of 1,000 metres above sea level. The tracks are suitable for skilled cyclers and beginners.

There are over 7 km of downhill bicycle tracks with a max altitude drop of 340 metres. They are different challenge level, with elaborate counter-slopes, sharp turns and power-ride sections. Professional bikes and protective gear are available for rent onsite. The cableway has bicycle hooks in the cabins. There is a bicycle repair shop and free bicycle wash onsite to bring your “steel horse” back into shape after your downhill adventure.
