10 days in Romania, first week of October

I have some free time from 28/30 of September until the 9th of October and I thought about going to Romania (arrive and depart from Sibiu). I want to climb this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transf%C4%83g%C4%83r%C4%83%C8%99an and then go around the mountains back to Sibiu.

Usually I cycle 80/90km a day, pack light and will either camp if I find some place nice or try to stay with WS hosts. In Romania people told me it's nice to look for accomodation in villages where people rent rooms, so I amy also try that.

I don't plan that much and am usually very relaxed.
If you are around the area in the same time period let me know and maybe we can meet and share stories ;)

By early October, it will be

By early October, it will be quite cold in the Carpathians, so you'll probably want to take advantage of the lodgings offered along the Transfagarasan instead of camping. However, if you are coming back over the mountains to Sibiu, make sure you choose a road that has plenty of human habitation, as some of the Carpathian roads are real wilderness where you won't see any houses the whole day. Don't try to cycle on the DN7/E81 road, because it is one of Europe's major highways with lots of trucks, and so it is dangerous and stressful.
