TRANS HUNGARIA TOUR
After the great success of the first Trans Hungaria Marathon in 2011, last year we organized the Trans Hungaria Tour, on the same course as previous year’s race.
This year in 2013 we organize the Tour again, building on the experiences of the last year! We have shortened the track to approximatelly 260 km, that is doable in 4 hard days.
This is a funny guided tour, most participants are expected to be amateur mountainbikers, both sexes, different age groups, but prepared to do 6-8 hours of mountainbiking partly on small forest roads, partly in single tracks.
We provide simple accomodation and food (dinner and breakfast) for four nights and optional transfer back to Budapest.
The goal of the tour is for the bikers to enjoy this spectacular route, which leads through North-Hungary’s most beautiful landscapes.
Participants have the opportunity –because it is not a race– to get to know the tourist attractions, national values, the culture of locals alongside the route.
Participation is at your own risk.
Helmets are mandatory!
Participants must have accident and sickness insurance for the entire duration of the tour!
