Bike tour of Lozenska planina

40 km around the beautiful mountain near Sofia, Bulgaria
Join us for an accessible and beautiful bike race with two distances accessible to all – 20 or 40km
What is it?

The tour of Lozenska planina is a bike race that we plan to organise for the first time in 2020. It will happen a day before Pancharevo Half Marathon.

We’re keen to show you the outdoor sports and Lozenska Planina mountain which is close to Sofia, yet relatively unknown to most people.

About the race

The race has 2 distances: 20 or 40 km with climb 1000 and  1600 meters respectively. It goes trough single-track, dirt roads, mud and meadows with open and shaded descends in the woods.

Equipment and bike

We recommend a mountain bike with large gears, at least a liter of water, light clothes and smartphone which contains the GPS Track.

Checkpoints

There will be 2 checkpoints:

  • Control Point 1, about 11 km from the start – under Lalina Mogila that will appoint racers for the 20km distance.
  • Refreshment Point 1 at 26 km in Pasarel village – with water, isotonic drinks and food.

Can I make a duathlon?

Sure, no problem, yet you need still to buy tickets for both events. We’ll have a rank list:

  • Little Duathlon (biking 20 km and run 21km)
  • Big duathlon (bike and run  40 km in 2 days)
