This year is the 12th edition of the Volta Menorca BTT!
We are so pleased to inform you that for the past few months we have been preparing for yet another edition of the Volta, the 12th! This year it will be on the 12th, 13th and 14th of October, coinciding, as usual, with the “Pilar” holiday, which this year will provide us with the long weekend we need to avoid having a night stage. Due to legislative changes regarding the Environment and as requested by the Balearic Island Government (as obligated by European regulations), it has become necessary to bring forward the preparations of the design of new and attractive routes.
Remember that the Volta Menorca BTT never repeats past stages and that each year we start fresh in this regard. This is one the factors that makes this event so special, but for those of you who already know us, there are so many more. Organized through the voluntary efforts of the Penya Ciclista Ciutadella, the Volta was the first significant social sporting event on the island. But with the intent of not growing beyond an optimal level, the maximum number of participants has been set at 500 bikers for several years now (not including the 70 guides). We have always prioritized quality over quantity and respect for our environment over profitability. Our true goal is for you to have a wonderful experience on your mountain bike, enjoying to the fullest Menorca's diverse landscape and, of course, the positive interactions with other riders. For these reasons, the Volta is NOT a competitive event, which also makes it unique. This fact should not, however, lead you to believe that it will be a “walk in the park”, it is quite the opposite and you should be physically prepared for a challenging event. The Volta has always been a mid to high level event and this year will be no exception.
So get ready! Registration opens on the 9th of June (with a discount during the first month). We would once again like to invite you to join us and enjoy Menorca and the BTT, and share a truly incredible experience packed with anecdotes, effort, and good vibes. In short, a great way to celebrate a sport that we all love.
So let the countdown begin for the 12th Volta Menorca BTT and we'll see you in Menorca in October!
