NO BORDER BIKEPACKING ADVENTURE

10 May 2019 - III EDITION - THE SEA

Third edition will start on May 10th 2019. It's now a consolidated appointment in the Italian national bikepacking calendar, a true "spring classic". So as not to run the risk of becoming trivial, even this year we renew the track. We will let you pass near the sea and we will let you visit the heart of the city of Trieste. Confirmed the ring route, with departure and arrival at Villaggio del Sole in Marina Julia with the chance of pre-and post-event accommodation, affiliated restaurant as well as showers and bike washing.

Follow us on the facebook page to stay up to date.

By the end of the year we will communicate the rough data regarding the overall distance and the positive difference in height, we can confirm that there will be not such big differences with the past editions.

Almost 300 registered at the second edition from 8 countries; more than 200 Finisher. The fastest took just under 20 hours, the last has arrived in 4 days. We welcomed all on arrival with a smile and an ice cold beer.

CARSO

Karst or Kras in Slovenian derives from the Indo-European root "kar", that is rock, stone. It is a rocky limestone plateau, which straddles the north-east of Italy (Gorizia and Trieste), Slovenia and Croatia. It starts from the foothills of the Julian Prealps up to the Adriatic Sea and continues in western Slovenia to the Velebit massif in the extreme north-west of Croatia.

It is historically knowk for being the scene of violent battles during the First World War.
