YMC 2015 - communication to the Mountain Biking Group: Important Update!
Hello Young Mountain Bike Movers!
Greetings from the team of Adventura.
I would like to give you a brief info update on the trail that you will be riding at. Due to the unforeseen weather conditions in Bulgaria, the initial track, on which we have intended to ride is covered in snow. Vitosha mountain is great for skiing right now, yes, even in April, but unfortunately is no good for mountain biking.
That’s why we have changed the mountain and the trail – we will be riding on the south slopes of the Stara Planina (or Balkan Mountain). We will start from the village of Lokorsko.
The track length is about 12.6km, the elevation gain is 460m. The track difficulty is intermediate, with one difficult section. In general is ridable for any person with previous biking (not limited to mountain biking) experience. The track can be downloaded in GPX format (you can open it in Google Earth) here.
Here is a short video clip for today as we rode the trail to make sure it is totally ridable and fun.
Thanks for your attention and we are looking forward to seeing you in Sofia and on the trail on Saturday!
