Vukovar to Dubrovnik ultra marathon sees riders from 74 to 14 years old

By  Aug 11, 2019

From the tenth year in a row the cycling ultramarathon from Vukovar to Knin and then onto Dubrovnik came to an end at the end of the week when 35 cyclists arrived in Dubrovnik after seven days of cycling in the intense August heat.

The cycling ultramarathon is organised by the Slavonski Brod Bicyclist Association and takes place every year in honour of causalities and fatalities of the Homeland War. From the 3rd of August of the 9th of August, in seven stages these mainly recreational cyclists ride on average 150 kilometres and pass through cities that were badly affected in the Homeland War.

The aim of the project is to promote cycling as a healthy way of life, to promote Slavonia, Slavonski Brod, Brod-Posavina County, but also Croatia as a cycle-tourism destination.

The oldest rider in this year’s ultramarathon was 74 years-old, whilst the youngest was only 14.
