Since 2014 we organize a 680 km cycling adventure 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 main goal is successfully to cover the Dunav Ultra Cycle Route on a bicycle – individually or in a team.
Our cause is to popularize the Danube region in Bulgaria via the Dunav Ultra cycling itinerary. Although the Danube subsequently passes 10 countries it is only at the Balkans that the river pristine nature shines through. On account of its numerous cultural, historical and natural attractions, the region and the bicycle route acts as a magnet for bike travelers all over the world.
The Danube path naturally offers a cycle route of great interest to both European tourists and tourists from other parts of the world. Second river in Europe in terms of length, the Danube has an exceptional character because of the number of countries crossed, ten, and the extent of the regions that it touches: with its waters it connects Europe from the west to the east.
(Български ТУК)A record number of cyclists will participate in the sixth consecutive edition of the 680-km long Dunav Ultra Cycling Adventure this year. All the 100 pre-announced “seats” are booked, seven months before the start of the event.
The temple statue of the Goddess Fortuna (which corresponds to the Greek Tyche, the Egyptian Isis) found in the ancient Roman city of Ulpia Oescus (today the Bulgarian village of Gigen) is one of the most remarkable archaeological finds in Bulgaria. Today the statue (about 3 meters high) can be seen at the National Archaeological Museum in Sofia.
The first official teaser of the growing popularity in the country and abroad – the “Dunav Ultra Cycle Adventure” is already on the Internet. The video is part of the advertising campaign of the event, which will take place in the late summer of 2019.
If you are a Danube bicycle traveller in Bulgaria, the town of Nikopol should be one of your stops during your cycle journey. It’s not only because the upcoming hilly terrain to the next bike stop (the tillage of Vabel), with it’s long centuries of history, Nikopol has few interesting places to visit it. One of them – the Shishman’s Fortress and it’s Gate is such a interesting site from our Dunav Ultra Cycle Route .
