Recreational bicycle race Jakovlja


Kanfanar (Canfanaro)

The people of Kanfanar devote special attention to their youngest inhabitants and friends. This is why they organise their famous children's cycling recreational race to celebrate the traditional Jakovlja folk festival.

The organiser, Axa Cycling Club, has adapted the trail for the youngest participants so that it is just 10 km long with an insignificant altitude difference of 30 m. The race passes on an asphalt road, and young cyclists start and finish their adventures in Kanfanar passing through Marići as well.

Enrolments can be made through our e-mail address or just before the start of the race, which is scheduled for the end of July.
