Book the second weekend of sunny May for a very special getaway – on two wheels!
For the first time ever, a three-day cycling event Plitvice Valleys Bike Weekend will be held right in the wild heart of the untouched nature, overlooking the National park’s captivating beauty.
The event’s program will satisfy both wishes of mtb recreational enthusiasts and needs of experienced adventurous racers, the ones in constant search for new, and more thrilling off-road paths.
The chase for the most beautiful sunset will turn into an exciting e-bike night expedition, the ideal opportunity to test the performance of top electric mountain bikes.
The recreational Saturday bike tour will take us through the quiet corn fields and picturesque villages, all the way to a home of the cave lions and friendly night flyers, where we’ll stop for a cave-picnic in an alluring protected landscape. We will not forget the come around the Old town of Drežnik, a medieval tower watching over the gorgeous canyon of Korana river, not far from the hidden oasis of the Deer Valley.
The Sunday race will guide us through the inspiring routes of dense centuries-old forests, while passing by the lonely hunting stands, ancient villages swallowed by nature and their long forgotten stone wells. In addition to the extraordinary downhill over the muddy tractor ditches under the most opened skies, the fastest competitors will be rewarded with the valuable equipment powered by the general sponsor, the bike-cyclops Giant.
The amusing Bike Village will be set up at the eco market Plitvice Art Farm, a place to enjoy the exquisite tastes of home-made dishes, while trying out the latest models at the Bike Expo. Kids will have fun with the suitable adrenaline challenges, rides through fun and green single-trails and most of all, our tombola game, rich in worthy surprises for everyone.
Take your well-deserved break in the fresh mountain air, outdoor entertainment with DJs and a cheerful company of your new bike-loving friends.
You will definitely come home in a better shape, with a head full of impressions, and perhaps with a new bike!
See you there!
