The “Start packages” for the upcoming Dunav Ultra: Follow the River 2020 promotional event (1.9.2020) will be on sale from January 15th. The city of Vidin will be the host for the third consecutive year, and the cycling transition accompanying the event will register its seventh consecutive edition.
The Dunav Ultra Cycle Route passes through/near 107 modern-day settlements in Northern Bulgaria, including the Danube towns: Vidin, Lom, Kozloduy, Oryahovo, Belene, Svishtov, Ruse, Tutrakan and Silistra. More than 500 km from the Dunav Ulta route overlaps the Eurovelo 6 transcontinental cycle route.
Since 2014 we have been organizing a 680 km bicycle challenge event – along the Danube River to the Black Sea in Bulgaria. Our Dunav Ultra Cycling Challenge is one of the most attractive events for amateur cyclists on the Balkans. The event’s goal is successfully to cover the Dunav Ultra route as solo participant or in a team.
Just 48 hours after the announcement of the exclusive “Reservation” option for the Dunav Ultra: Follow the River 2020 event, half of the available “slots” are already occupied.
On September 6, a total of 100 amateur cyclists from four countries gather in Bulgarian city of Vidin. The event is named Dunav Ultra: Via Pontica and is a personal adventure that promotes the tourist route of the same name – Dunav Ultra. During their personal journey, cyclists will travel a total of 683 km. Although their travel is not a race, the fastest ones are expected to cover the distance in less than 48 hours. The main group of participants is expected to reach the Black Sea in the Durankulak village region within 5 days.
