This northern route leads from Peškera bay to the exciting Parenzana cycling trail, which was once a rail line running from Poreč to Trieste. Along the first part of the tour, we will discover the interior of Istria and Grabovica forest, which is interwoven with single-track trails just perfect for mountain bikers. We will pass through the village of Nova Vas and continue through vineyards and olive groves. A short break at Baredine cave will give you a chance to get to know your fellow cyclists. Slowly descending towards the sea, we will pedal through Červar Porat resort and continue riding through the largest olive grove in Croatia and alongside picturesque beaches on a path that will bring us back to our starting point at roughly 12:30PM.
