How are you managing the confinement? We suppose that, like ours, your rolling pins are getting some serious mileage, and that you’re dying to get back out to the great outdoors. Our time is coming!
This is certainly a time of doubt and uncertainty in which it is quite difficult to make any plans, as our near future remains somewhat of a mystery.
Precisely for this reason, the Penya Ciclista Ciutadella wants you to know that we are as busy and excited as ever (as well as with more difficulties than ever) planning a magnificent 15th Volta Menorca BTT that will quickly make you forget our confinement and the hours of rolling pins and baking, so we can all recover the liberating feeling of exploring the seaside and enjoying Menorca’s natural environment while practicing sport.
As bikers, we know as well as anyone that health comes first! We are therefore strictly adhering to the rules and regulations set forth by the health authorities that, unfortunately, in such a serious and novel situation, are changing from one day to the next. What exactly will happen tomorrow remains a mystery today, not to mention next month or next summer.
With this panorama in mind, we believe that our best option is to wait a bit longer to see how the upcoming phases of deconfinement develop, and what kind of “new reality” begins to take shape. We have therefore decided to postpone the presentation and the beginning of registration for the 15th Volta Menorca BTT until the 6th of July.
So for these remaining days we’re stuck inside, and soon enough on our favourite tracks and trails, let’s keep training, because here in Menorca the ever challenging and spectacular Volta Menorca BTT awaits.
Stay positive, be healthy and long live biking!
Once again this year, reserve the Pilar holiday weekend for your trip to Menorca. Those of us at the Penya Ciclista Ciutadella cycling club are looking forward to exploring the island’s trails and paths with you.
We have three truly memorable BTT routes set up for the 10th, 11th and 12th of October.
There will not be a night stage this year, as all three stages will take place during daylight hours, allowing you to better enjoy the landscape and take in all the natural beauty along the routes.
For returning riders, no explanation is necessary, as we will continue with the same philosophy, excitement, intensity and the same desire for you to leave the island with the same sensation of joy and satisfaction as the last 15 years, as has been the case since the organisation of the very first Volta a Menorca BTT.
Those of you who are considering your first participation should know what you will find: fellow riders who love mountain biking, beautiful nature, an excellent atmosphere, rocks, stones, age-old holm-oak forests, wind, single tracks, historic bridle paths, virgin beaches, short yet intense climbs and descents, and much more. But above all, you will find a club with over 100 volunteers whose main goal is for you to have the very best weekend possible.
This year’s welcome bag will again include a spectacular GOBIK cycling jersey made exclusively for our participants.
And please don’t forget, registration starts on 6 July and will close once 500 participants have signed up. And if you register within July, you’ll get a discount.
So there you have it, let’s get moving!
