Yantra Loop delivers for Hotnitsa Velos

11403409_1022734274411677_3017892588909119276_nA cracking ride for the HOTNITSA VELOS who cycled in stunning weather last Sunday July 5th through fields of sunflowers, empty roads (except for the odd mule cart or goat herder).  They even found some gnarly off roading along side the River Yantra – not for the faint hearted.

Love exploring your local areas on a bike and feeling connected to the landscape, then join the VELOS on their weekly jaunt – everyone is welcome.  They like to create a bit of a stir in the villages, especially when stopping for midway caffeine fixes.

bikeTheir next big ride is in the Stara Planina foothills later in the summer and details will be posted on their FB page HOTNITSA VELOS.  A keen cyclist or just a novice get in touch and explore Veliko Tarnovo under your own steam – literally.
