The 4th Cycling race “Up to the Source of Cetina River” took place on Sunday June 21, 2015 and 300 cyclist from the Cetina area, but also from Split, Šibenik, Solin, Omiš, Trogir, Dubrovnik, Livno and Mostar cycled the route from Sinj town all the way to the Source of Cetina River and back to Sinj. No competition, just getting together to cycle along the beautiful Peruča Lake and through lavender fields and magic roads of the Cetina river area.
This area (as many others in Inland Dalmatia) is just absolutely perfect for cycling and other outdoor activities and I am amazed by the amount of work and enthusiasm of the organisers (Cycling Club Vlaji-Sinj) and participants, who started this tradition four years ago and are passionate about cycling in Sinj region and beyond. They live what they love. You don´t get much better promotion of cycling in Inland Dalmatia than this. Sinj tourist board is aware of that and is supporting and promoting the race by any means they can. These stunning pictures were made by Ivan Alebić for all of us to enjoy.
This is how a normal road in Inland Dalmatia looks like – cyclist on one side, horse-back riders on the other..
And there is always time to make a picture at the Peruča Lake, or a selfie for that matter..
..and to have a friendly conversation while driving..
..and for some sightseeing.
Finally there – hope everyone got to be in the picture, the Cetina Source looks too little for this years participants. Looks like there was enough food for everybody, though.
Some evening fun with live music and band Stella waiting for those cyclist to get back.
The picture below was taken from the Dinarides Trails website – which offers a variety of cycling trails in Dalmatia for everyone to explore.
Great event, wish you many more to come!!
