Five years ago, Rajko Malojcic convinced the Senj tourist committee in Croatia to start an amateur mountain bike race. This year's edition will happen Saturday, June 16, starting from the town of Sv. Juraj and climbing up to Zavizan at 1594m. An easier option starts from Oltari and only climbs to 1,000 meters.
The race is one way to see the Sjeverni Velebit National Park. The record winning time is 2 hours and 27 minutes. For more information, visit www.tz-senj.hr/Hr/Biciklijada_2007/Biciklijada_Zavizan_2007.htm.
