In 2017, the Dunav Ultra Tour took place as for the first and only time unusual race called Gladiators on Bikes. Before the GOB race, and after that, the Dunav Ultra Тour had no any competitive element.
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.
The new selection of the 2020 “The 100 Dunav Ultra Highlights” just begins. The selection presents our annual list of the most interesting sites and places – altogether part of the unique journey along the Danube river banks of Bulgaria and the Dunav Ultra Cycle Route.
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.
