41st cycling marathon around Pohorje
Most would say, why are the people of Maribor so proud of Pohorje, because it is just a hill. Is it true?
Not really, because:
1. Pohorje is mountain chain. Its highest peak is Črni Vrh, 1543.5 m.
2. Pohorje is for all people of Maribor, if not almost all Styria, a symbol of tradition, sport spirit, activity. Regardless of the seasons we invite you to visit it – in winter for skiing and sledding, in the spring and summer it calls cyclists and hikers, and in autumn it offers us plenty of forest fruits and beautiful color shades
There is a Golden Fox on Pohorje, a prestigious female competition for the World Cup, there are Slovenian, European and world events in downhill cycling, where the Mountain bike World Cup takes place.
What about goodies, such as pohorski pisker, pohorska omleta, pohorska bunka, pohorski žganci.
You just have to love Pohorje.
Can you believe that this year it is going to be 41st annual (!) Cycling marathon around Pohorje, which begins (Trg svobode square) and ends (Trg generala Maistra square) in the heart of Maribor.
Tourist cycling will be available on 147, 72, 50 and 30 kilometers long routes.
According to their website: “The purpose of the event is also to promote a healthy lifestyle and to promote recreation.” Source
