October 9, 2020 – Even though the official races are rescheduled for 2021, since it’s impossible to organize a competition for more than a thousand participants, Istria will still be a favorite destination for cyclists this weekend as the Istria300 demo bike race starts tomorrow.

As reports, a joint demo ride for recreationists in Poreč will be organized tomorrow, October 10, 2020, by the Istria300 organizing team on the originally planned competition tracks of 155, 235, and 300 kilometers around the whole of Istria.

The program begins today with a welcome program at the Valamar Diamant Hotel in Poreč, and ends on Sunday, October 11, 2020. Due to great interest, the Valamar Diamant Hotel has opened additional accommodation capacities.

Valamar Riviera, together with the local community, is actively involved in the development of bike tourism in its Istrian destinations of Poreč and Rabac, so they also supported this new project Istria300, which takes place under the slogan “Ride your Limits!”

The organizers of this cycling event are Vladimir Miholjević, a former Croatian cyclist, and Julius Rupitsch, the organizer of the prestigious Großglockner Berglauf mountain race in Austria.

The organizers explain that the route will be closed to traffic during the ride and that all participants start and end the ride at the same place, in beautiful Poreč. Routes of 155 and 235 kilometers are offered, and participants decide which one to choose during the ride itself.

Istria offers ideal conditions for cycling, which makes it a desirable destination for many professional cycling teams who regularly come to races or winter training camps. And in addition to the world’s cycling stars, many recreationists come to Istria who, through such events, have the opportunity to measure their strength and readiness on the same roads on which their sports idols rode before them.

The organizers of the Istria300 say that the impressive cycling routes on some of Istria’s most beautiful roads and the most spectacular locations will provide the best cycling experience in the life of every motivated and ambitious cyclist.

The Istria300 race will be accompanied by the four-day Istria300 Expo from October 8 to 11 in Poreč. The participation for the race is free.
