Dunav Ultra transforms Baba Vida into a Cycle Arena

A new stage for the largest cycling adventure in Bulgaria, Dunav Ultra comes with this year’s edition. The ninth volume of the promotional event, named “The River, Dobrudzha” and the Sea 2022, will take place on the 27th of August 2022 in the town of Vidin.

A dedicated cycling zone will premiere under the name Baba Vida Arena. The facility is literally in front of the walls of the only entirely preserved medieval fortress in the country, where bikers from all corners of Bulgaria, Romania, and other countries will promote cycling tourism along the Danube River and the Dunav Ultra Route itself.

Committed tents and promo pavilions will be assembled for cyclers, guests, and sponsors to promote the campaign “Dunav Ultra – most popular cycling route on the Balkans”. Personally the mayor of the town, Dr. Tsvetan Tsenkov will host all initiatives related to Baba Vida Arena.

On the next day, 28th of August, the massive cycling trail will start from Vidin, during which in the course of a full week, the cyclers will cross over 110 districts along the Danube River and Dobrudzha. Every year the route gains more recognition, and the interest towards the events increases. Therefore, they multiply in number, scale, attractiveness.

The event is officially supported by the municipality of Vidin and a record number of Danube municipalities and partners are expected to join this year’s cycling adventure. Before and during the trail, various children and student initiatives are planned to promote the local landmarks, nature, and traditions. In return, children will receive special themed gifts that we’ll currently keep under wraps.

The sales of the Starter kits for the official event registrations to The River, Dobrudzha and the Sea 2022 edition will start on the 31st of January.


This year, a pioneering opportunity for Starter kit alternatives is presented – now, the Dunav Ultra Adventure Box can be selected between a “Light” and a “Pro” version of the kit. The Light version is priced at 159 BGN, and the Pro – at 239 BGN. As usual, the registration categories are “Solo”, “A team of 2” and “A team of 4”.
