The second edition of “Zlatitsa Bike Jamboree” took place over the weekend of October 2nd and 3rd in the region of Srednogorje. The event, which took place for the first time in 2020 and this year again proved to be one of the favourite events of many mountain bikers in the country. During the two days over 80 participants enjoyed not only the wonderful autumn weather, but also excellent organization and prepared, specially adapted for the sport tracks.
In organizing the event, similar to the first edition, the local organization “Free Dimension” and the cycling organization “Bike Ventures”, which organizes various events related to cycling, reunited.
The main goal of the event was to popularize Zlatitsa and the Sredna Gora region as a destination for practicing the rapidly developing sport in recent years – mountain biking. Many of the participants came for the first time and were fascinated by the opportunities that the region offers, as well as the quality of the routes that are located on the territory of “Zlatitsa Bike Park” in the area above the village of Tsarkvishte.
The event started on Saturday morning with a transition to the peak “Svishti plaz”. The climb was led by local Free Dimension cyclists and allowed participants to enjoy the beauty and views of the mountain. After the long hike and the dizzying descent from the top, there was a lunch break and opportunities to share ideas and impressions. Saturday afternoon was set aside for a short friendly race on one of the adapted routes in the region of Sredna Gora above the town of Pirdop. The organizers provided symbolic prizes to the first three of the guests.
On Sunday, the participants had the opportunity to ride on the routes of the cycling park. The newest route, which was built last summer by the local club, was also opened. All participants were very pleased with the organization of the event and the opportunities that the region offers.
Thus, after the great success of the downhill competition held in May “Zlatitsa Cup 2021” and the event “Zlatitsa Bike Jambreе” vol.2 strengthened the Zlatitsa region as one of the most popular, frequently visited and fastest growing regions for mountain biking in the country.
