Cheers to fellow cyclists in Lithuania! Eight years ago I have convinced the Tourist Office in Senj in Croatia www.tz-senj.hr to organize an amateur MTB race from the seashore up to the mountain refuge Zavižan at 1594 m. In tha last eight years it has become the most popular amateur MTB event in Croatia. Now I am trying to convince some of many Lithuanian tourists who come to Senj to bring a bike and take part in this race. Those too lazy to push themselves in the rain or in the sunshine for 38 km can start from the village Oltari at 975 m and ride only 18 km through the shade of the forest. Everybody will be rewarded by beautifull nature of the National park Northern Velebit.
Last years event is on Youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P1kg3A9EM_4 . This year the race starts on Saturday June 19th . Information is provided by the Tourist office in Senj and registrations shall start there in May. Surf internet for keywords "Hillclimb to Zavizan", "Aufstieg ans Zavizan" or "Uspon na Zavizan".
Welcome!

Hi
Thanks for the invitation, but going there only makes sense (~1700 km) if you come not because of the race, but to spend some time in Croatia... :)
