With Bycicle Through Croatia
On Two Wheels Through Istria
The bicycle is becoming one of the most popular non motorized transport facilities. The combination of means of transport that does not pollute the environment and the wonderful trails in Croatia will make your holiday perfect. In Istria, members of the mountain bike clubs held downhill trail in Buzet where there is lighter and heavier variant. So, there is something for everyone.
In the central part of Istria there is no path for the downhill but there are a large number of trails for XC i.e. cross country. I believe that when you think about cycling in Croatia you think about the conditions which offer Istrian area.
There are several trails for XC and short paths for free ride and downhill in Premantura www.adrenalina.hr
Refreshments in Gorski Kotar

The Charms of Velebit and “White Roads”
Driving pleasure you can feel and on Velebit. One of the ideal paths is one that starts from Baska Ostarija, the first part is asphalt, towards the Ravni Dabar, and from here you can continue the “white road” into the interior of the Velebit. When selecting a track on Velebit, it is required to inform about conditions of “white roads” and take maps because in this field because of the activities of the Croatian Forests and opening new paths you can easily turn in the wrong direction.
Paths of Dalmatian Mountains
In Dalmatia you can ride downhill on a few tracks, and for the cross country Dalmatian mountains provide the ideal combination. If you are near the center, and do not mind the high summer temperature you will pass the so-called firefighting road that runs along the south side of Kozjak from Rupotina to the pass of Malacka and whole section enjoy in the view of Split and Kastela channel with all 7 Kastela.
One of the favorite tracks, the Split cycling club Timun, it is around Poljicka mountain, the trail starts from the center of Tugara, the place close to Split around ten kilometers, leads to the pass at the Church of Our Lady of Snow, from where you can run down for a swim at the Omis beach or continue white road back to Split to Podstrana.
The Islands Are Best Acquainted by Bicycle
Adriatic Islands, unused cycling possibilities, could become a real cycling mecca. Hvar is one of the islands that have cycling trails.
But if you’re going to Hvar and other Dalmatian Island, take a spare tire because you will hard to find another to buy.
The best way to meet the Island Brac with their old ways is with cycling. You will enjoy driving through unspoiled landscapes, among the olive trees and the old settlement. Do not miss the Lozisca with one of the most beautiful structures, work Ivana Rendica and feel the spirit of the true Mediterranean in the square outside the church.
If you are a bigger ambition, run down with bike from Vidova gora to desert Blace.
