Where sports and pleasure meet

Over 15 recreational bicycle rides take place in Northwestern Istria every year, mostly between March and October, although some are held in the winter months, owing to its mild climate. Some of them have a 15-year-long tradition and loyal participants who return every year.

Thematic routes

They are frequently thematically conceived and related to the specific offer of the region. They invite to asparagus excursions, wine bike marathon in Momjan, Parenzana railway quest or into Završje, recalling the hidden beauties of that town upon a hill.

Apart from recreational, northwestern Istria also hosts important world cup races! Istrian spring, the demanding stages of which traverse the entire Istrian peninsula and Trophy Umag, a popular road stage race offering an opportunity to test your strength at the beginning of the main cycling season, both made it into the calendar of Union Cycliste International.

The Istria Granfondo cycle marathon

In 2012, the cycle of a new big road bicycle race Istria Granfondo began on the territories of Umag, Novigrad, Buje and Brtonigla. Granfondo is a special type of cycling event, gaining global popularity, which recently spread from Europe into the United States. The ride is massive, non-competitive and open to everyone, while still allowing a certain degree of competitiveness for those aiming to win.

Istria Granfondo passes all across northwestern Istria and is organized in several stages. Attractive rides are intended for amateurs and families with children, while others can choose between the shorter or the longer route, respectively 85 and 155 km long.
