Limes Bike & Family Tour is mainly intended for all participants over 14 years of age. A stop above the Pirate’s Cave on the slopes of Lim Bay is obligatory as it offers a breath-taking view and is an ideal chance to take a photograph from this attractive viewpoint.
THE TIME FOR THE LIMES BIKE & FAMILY TOUR HAS COME!
The Limes Bike & Family Tour is a recreational bike race in which everyone can take part! This cycling event is a frequent choice of families with children, athletes and recreationists, and all those who like to spend time in nature. Behind the organisation of Limes Bike & Family Tour stands the Municipality of Vrsar Tourist Board, which, in cooperation with Maistra, launched this event in order to further promote the beauty of the Lim Bay, the Vrsar archipelago and the Municipality of Vrsar itself through sporting activities for the whole family.
The cycling race, which is open to all participants over the age of 14, starts at 10 a.m. from the car park in front of the Saline sports hall in Vrsar. The 50.1 km long trail leads through the forest of Kontija, Mrgani, Bralići and the slopes of the Lim channel. Participants can find a place to rest and refresh in the Pirate’s cave, one of the most famous attractions in Vrsar, where they will also enjoy the impressive view from the viewpoint. The circular trail will also pass through Kapetanova Stancija, Kloštar, Pili, Limska draga, Červari, Knapići, Sveti Lovreč, Rajki, and will end where the race started – in front of Saline’s sports hall.
The Limes Bike & Family Tour runs mostly on macadam roads, so mountain bikes are the most suitable for it, although the planned circular trail can also be overcome with trekking and electric bikes. In order to make the experience of this one-day trip complete, all participants are accompanied by a professional guide and accompanying vehicle. Also, as in previous years, lunch will be provided for the participants in the Hunter’s lodge.
For younger participants, from 8 to 12 years old, a closed circular ride is organized on the grassy area next to Saline’s sports hall starting at 10.30 am. Depending on their age, children will be divided into groups that will ride from two to five laps, and the bike guides also oversee entertainment and lead the ride itself. All participants of the Saline Poligon Bike Race are provided with appropriate T-shirts and diplomas as a souvenir of their participation, as well as lunch for all registered participants and their parents/accompanying adults.
Anyone interested in participating in the Limes Bike & Family Tour can register on the day of the cycling event – Saturday, May 27, 2023, from 8:30 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. for the bike race, or by 10:15 a.m. for the circular ride intended for younger children. Participation in the circular ride is free, while the entry fee for the bike race is 10 euros per person.
