A year 404 brought one of the best weekends in year so far: with MTB Cerkno Lines we found a way to ride and bring together Trans Julius riders in the light of all restrictions due to corona virus. 59 riders enjoyed unforgettable weekend of endless riding, good local food, sunbathing, laughing and relaxation - the things that we all need in this times.
In March we were all confronted with new era of MTB competitions and events. Trans Julius stubbornness is unlimited and in a short time we arrange with local MTB teams to organise Trans Julius Summer - riding Trans Julius trails in smaller groups and with MTB guides. With Cerkno team we found a date. After last year TJ training day the location was not a question: small village Orehek (near Cerkno). When riders came on Friday and Saturday there were rare who didn't ask: Where did you find this place? But on Saturday evening this question changed into a quote: That is the best MTB place you can find!
59 participants had three options: all-weekend riding or justo on Saturday or Sunday. They were divided into different groups regarding level of experience: for those who love to follow Trans Julius No1 rider Tadej Razpet and those who enjoy relaxed riding .
A small village Orehek is a MTB dream location: morning coffee with a sunrise view or evening beer with watching sunset over Cerkno hills, with an above average distance from a crazy world and mostly without mobile phone signal. Touristic salesmen would say: MTB digital detox weekend. In Trans Julius language we say: classic from Cerkno. You can have just the best time in Cerkno!
If you weren't there, MTB Cerkno Lines is there for you all summer!
The magic of Trans Julius is that by coincidence we know what is hiding behind 9 mountains and 9 rivers and 96 road turns and it is gold worth. We hope that photos and riders experiences are enough that you book a weekend, a day or a half day of riding with MTB Cerkno Lines!
