BRM 300 km Sveta Nedelja 2020.

Do you know that for more than a year now, Croatian randonneurs, assisted by their Slovenian colleagues, have not ride a brevet on the beautiful Slovenian roads?! Imagine!
I am very happy to invite you to the 300-kilometer brevet that will have direction from Sveta Nedelja to Slovenia. Sign up, come and you won’t go wrong … even if it rains.
Of course, I will not describe the route to you. What will you see? For example … a little bit of Dolenjska, Kozjanski park, a little bit of Styria, the green slopes of beautiful Pohorje mountain. This time you will not ride in long ascents on Pohorje. Are you sorry? I know that … : 0) Furthermore … the heights of the Carinthian Alps, the Savinja canyon that flows into the Sava in Zidani Most, you will see where Laško beer comes from and a large number of villages, smaller or larger settlements.
Of course, 316 km of asphalt roads or bike paths, which are mostly in Slovenia. Many of them you could not drive as part of our brevet rides.
The start will be on Saturday, June 13, at 6:00 am from Ante Starčević Square in Sv. Nedelja. It is the most popular randonneurs square in Croatia.
As the time limit for this brevet is 20 hours, you should return to the same square no later than Sunday, June 14 by 2:00 am.
In addition to a technically correct bicycle, a helmet is required, as well as a reflective vest, front white and rear red light for the night part of the ride as well as for riding in poor visibility conditions.

BRM 200 km Otočac

Because you asked for it!

Almost the second season, I have been hearing longing statements that some would like to go and ride the brevet from Otočac. Apparently, the route has been standing “inthedrawer” for so long. FINALLY, you can start at 8 am, on May 30th, Saturday, and finish the circular path which starts from Otočac.

As usual, something new has to come out of my Randonneur lab. Other wise this wouldn’t be it. You will be able to see terrace of Bistro “Ribič”, Gacka River and her “springs”, but the Velebit ascents will be denied to you, and those in the Mala Kapela will be offered.

I will not describe the route. I would love you to come and ride the courseby bike. Prepare well by taking a good look at the map and reading the roadbook. What particularly characterizes this route is lots of narrow paved roads in the villages that are not located on the main roads. Therefore, you will have to be careful because, on your way behind the bends there could be agricultural machines, domestic or wild animals.

Detailed information about checkpoints and instructions will beprovided before start of brevet.

Upon your return, there will be offered lunch or dinner, beer, huntin gstories… on the terrace of Bistro “Ribič”.

The time limit is on Saturday, May 30th at 9:30 pm. With the technically correct bicycle, helmet, reflective vest or sash, front white and rear red flashlight for the night ride and ride in conditions of poor visibility are mandatory. Few other things are recommended, such as a mobile phone, ID card, health insurance card, some money, handytool, a pump, cloth and spare tube.

Registration

The starting feeis 110 HRK. You can also order a commemorative medal for 70 HRK after successfully completing the marathon. You can register by May 28th to 11:59 pm. Enter your name, family name, year of birth, postala ddress, e-mail address, and cell phone number that you can receive during the ride. Sign up (here.) sibabic (at) gmail (dot) com
