Transfer from Thessaloniki to Bike Park
The trip begins at the Outline Adventures office on Friday afternoon at 17:00 where your tour host will welcome you and help you load your bike and luggage into the van. After a short tour briefing, we will start driving for 3,5 hours. As soon as we arrive to the resort, we will check in at the hotel and then head for dinner. Borovets offers a descent number of restaurants with traditional food and local Bulgarian beers. After dinner we will head back to the hotel to rest because some serious riding days are about to come.
Ride the Park
Second day starts with a good breakfast at the hotel, because a long riding day is ahead of us! Make sure you wear your protective gear and your bike is in shape before you jump on the chairlift. The chairlift operates from 9:00 to 18:00 so there is plenty of time to explore all of the trails the park has to offer. Our van will be park at the bottom of the track in case you need any mechanical support. After ride we will enjoy some cold beers and snacks next to the bottom of the tracks before we head to the hotel to get some rest and prepare ourselves for dinner. We can either have dinner to another tavern at the resort or take a short drive to the next village. After dinner we suggest you to have a look at your bike to make sure everything is in one piece for tomorrow’s riding day.
Ride the Park – Drive back to Thessaloniki
Today is the second and last riding day at Borovets Bike Park. After a strong breakfast we will make sure to have all of our luggage at the reception ready to load them into the van. As soon as we finish loading our luggage, we are ready to hit the trails once again. We recommend you to try every trail you may have not managed to ride the day before, or just keep riding your favourite ones! After ride we will have optionally a lunch at a traditional tavern and then head to the van to start driving back to Thessaloniki. The trip will finish at the Outline Adventures office in the city centre of Thessaloniki. This is the end of an amazing riding experience at the Bulgarian mountains with cool people, that share the same passion for mountain biking, like we do!
