Was exhausted like never before.
It was a bit too long for me as a beginner.
But the host was nice and the whole group waited for the few slower of us.
The “Route of Friendship and Health”
The Name says it all, and on Top there are many beautiful views.
The first ride on this Trail 10 years ago made me addicted to cycling in Istria. It is not a Racing Track but more a way to discover Nature, mediveal historic Places and creative Artists at Work in a very quiet and joyful slow way. Passing the kilometer Stone “100” feels to me somehow like coming home enjoying the last 20 easy to Porec. This has nothing to do with “Holiday on the beach” what makes it even much more worthy to see. Looking forward to ride again soon!
