Are you a fan of cycling, adventure and beautiful nature? Then save the date! The second weekend in May is reserved for the Plitvice Valleys Bike Weekend – a three-day festival of cycling to be held in Plitvice Valleys from 10th- 12th of May.
What should you expect from this event? Three whole days of a rich programme, so let’s go into more detail.
Day 1 – Search for the best sunset
The first day of the event will host a relaxing 20 kilometre long „sunset seeker“ night ride with electric bikes. After enjoying the sunset over the Plitvice Valleys, cyclists can go for a ride under the starry sky, which is an ideal opportunity to test the performance of electric mountain bikes.
Day 2 – Family cycling tour through interesting locations in the Plitvice Valleys
Saturday is reserved for the Barać Caves family bike tour. This 30 kilometer long tour with a 350 metre altitude change includes riding on a macadam road and asphalt through the Plitvice Valleys, taking the cyclists through pictoresque villages, the Barać caves where a picnic will be held, all the way to the Drežnik Grad medieval fort above the Korana canyon. It’s a proper challenge!
Day 3 – win great prizes on a recreational race
Sunday’s race is for adventurers seeking exciting off-road trails. The organizers have announced a downhill ride through grooves left by tractors, and the spectacular horizons of the Plitvice Valleys. Psst – there are also prizes to win!
In Grabovac, at the Plitvice Art Farm, there will be a Bike Village where cyclists can relax and refresh themselves with domestic specialty dishes, they can test the latest bike models and have fun with a DJ while the youngest participate in various activities.
