I inviteyou to a cycling ride on the 300-kilometer brevet marathon which will start in SvetaNedeljaon Saturday, May 11that 6:00 am toPohorje Mountainin Slovenia and back.

On the program there is a 304 km ride that is all but flat. In order not to get lost on the ride, please study the map and the road book. To write all the places, it would be boring to read. As for the climb, you can expect two long ones (18 and 17 km, Rogla and the Trijekralji), four short ones (3 to 4 km), and few short but very steep sections and a couple of overpasses – I did not mean to scare you, just wanted to inform you. Ending the marathon will not be too challenging. What’s more importantare the beautiful green landscapes and the places you will pass so you will not even notice the steepness. I hope there are no overburdening circumstances.

At the 2nd checkpoint, at the Dom naPesku, a warm meal will be waiting for you. Do not miss ice cream on the 4th checkpoint in Slovenska Bistrica, I recommend at least two scoops.

Detailed information about checkpoints and instructions will be provided before start of the ride. The time limit is Sunday, May 12 at 2:00 am. With the technically correct bicycle, a mandatory helmet, a reflective vest, a front white and a red flashlight for the night drive and a ride in conditions of poor visibility are required. Recommended are few more things, such as a handy tool, a pump, a cloth and a spare tube.

It is also compulsory to have ID card or passport for crossing the borders and some cash (Some of pubs on the road may not accept the credit cards).

The starting fee is 120 HRK. You can also order a commemorative medal (70 HRK) after successfully completing the marathon. You can register by May 9th at 23:59 at the latest. First and last name, year of birth, postal address, e-mail address, and cell phone number you can be reached at during the ride are mandatory for registration.  Sign up (here) sibabic (at) gmail (dot) com.
