Get your favourite vintage bike out of your garage, or rent one and register for the Istrianissima - a retro gourmet bicycle race through northwestern Istria.
Come to Kaštel on Saturday the 23th of April, and you will be warmly greeted with welcome drinks in company of a group of bicyclists over 60 and members of the Grožnjan Mountain Bike Club. At 10AM, the old-school pedalling will begin, taking you through Istria's green landscapes to well-known winemakers, wine cellars, and the artsy town of Grožnjan. You will taste wines from Kozlović, Brajko, and Sinković paired with local products. You will visit the Atelier tavern in Marušići and the medieval town of Grožnjan, where you will have the chance to socialize while sampling Istrian wine and local prosciutto.
At 4PM, you will return to Kaštel, where another gourmet treat will be waiting for you – lunch under a tent featuring dishes based on wild asparagus. The fun will continue with the asparagus-themed “Šparogada” event with all-night music and dancing.
The registration fee is 220 kuna or 30 euros per person, and only 100 people can attend, so get your typing hands ready and register soon via email!
Bring the old days back to life on the seat of a vintage bicycle!
