Weekend Bike & Gourmet Tour for Lovers of Recreation and Istrian Delicacies

Lauren Simmonds

As Glas Istre writes on the 8th of October, 2019, the eighth edition of the Istrian Weekend Bike & Gourmet Tour will bring together all those who enjoy cycling and tasting Istrian delicacies in Rovinj on October the 12th and 13th this year.

This recreational cycling experience is intended for all recreational cyclists, whether they be on MTB bikes, trekking or electric bikes, created in collaboration with the Maistra hotel company, the Rovinj Tourist Board and the Rovinj Craftsmen’s Association.

To cater to all participants, the organisers have provided two itineraries – “Mare”, which is 49.6 kilometres long and “Monti”, which is 54 kilometres in length. On the first day on the “Mare” trail, participants will enjoy Istrian seafood delicacies, while on the second day, on the “Monti” trail, they will be greeted with the possibility of trying out various delicacies from the beautiful Istrian hinterland.

Thus, gourmet breaks will take place along the Mare Trail at the Albachiara, Istria and Feral restaurants, and along the Monti Trail, more Istrian gourmet delicacies will be served at the Pizzeria Max and Mofardin restaurants, as well as at the San Tommaso winery.

Departure is scheduled on both days at 10:00 in front of the Hotel Eden Sports Centre, where electric bikes can be rented for an extra charge, and the same place, the bike and gourmet tour will come to an end. The bike ride will take place along dirt roads and marked cycle paths around the picturesque Istrian locations of Rovinj and Bale.

The entry fee of 250 kuna per day or 450 kuna for a two-day package includes meals and drinks at the aforementioned gourmet points, a ride accompanied by a professional guide, an accompanying vehicle, a bicycle ticket and a gift. Registration is possible through the Maistra Travel Agency or on the day of the event at the starting location.
