    Riva (Waterfront)

    Recreational MTB bicycle ride

    Among the large number of amateur cycling races on the Istrian peninsula, the Limes Bike Tour organised by the Vrsar Tourist Board is getting more and more important. This event is mainly intended for families with children, but is also open for participants of all ages.

    The start is on Vrsar's waterfront, and a large part is ridden through the Kontija forest. 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. For all participants of the race, scheduled for 28th April, lunch is provided at the Hunting House (Lovačka Kuća) in the Protected Forest of Kontija.

    The finish line does not mean the end of socialising. A prize draw for all participants is scheduled along with an attractive music and entertainment programme.

    Enrolments should be made via email to outdoor@maistra.hr . The Limes Bike Tour trail mainly runs on a macadam road so it is most suitable for riding on mountain bikes, although it can be ridden on trekking and electric bikes too.

    Adventure & trekking races

    The biggest adventure of the Lim Bay is back in with its third edition! A team race that will trigger your mind, bringing you to the edge of your endurance while testing your skill up to the ultimate atom of strength, remaining in your memory forever.

    The organizer has prepared a two-day adventure for you in Vrsar's Resort Belvedere in which a challenge can be found by whoever wants to move in nature on 12th and 13th May. The first day of the program offers a classical adventure race intended for two-member teams. From unknown locations, competitors with compasses and maps move through the beauties of the Vrsar archipelago, the Lim Bay and its hinterland. In the 60 km long adventure, running, cycling, rowing and abseiling, as well as city orientation will be interwoven along with a surprise that will enable participants to get to know Istria in the most interesting way.

    For those seeking an adventure, but who are not fully prepared for an entire day activity, there is a light category that will evoke all the beauties of this sport over a shorter distance, but will still try your endurance and will.

    On the second day, with the start and finish in the Resort Belvedere, a classic trek has been organised for all running enthusiasts. The 25 km long Mountaineering Category has been designed for experienced runners, whilst those who prefer shorter and faster distances can try the Fun & Run category on a 10 km long trail.

    However, if all this seems elusive and you still want to spend an active day with your family, Trickeri have prepared a 1 km long family race for you in the spirit of a treasure hunt, so even the younger family members will have the opportunity of having fun and feeling what it is like to be an adventurer. And don't think you can't do it, because first you have to reach your boundaries in order to overcome them. See you at the Lim Bay Challenge where memories last forever.
