Krk MTB Family Story – the course of the tour:
Following the start and a short ride through the historical heart of Krk’s old city, the route heads off along the promenade Dražica to the Koralj Hotel. The scenery of Krk is left behind, only to access the road up to the no. 8 marked cycle path leading to Putevima zlatnih kapi (Golden Drops Pathways) – through olive tree groves and drystone walls – a typical Krk’s landscape. It then heads on an off-road trail followed by a demanding climb to the picturesque Lakmartin, where the first stop is anticipated as well as the visit to the Magriž family farm, known for the production of Krk’s typical cheese with its distinctive taste and aroma. After a local produce tasting, the tour continues through olive groves up to the main road and then connects to an easy coastal cycle path leading to Punat – one of the largest nautical centres on the island. Since Punat also stands out as the centre of olive tree cultivation, a tasting of the “liquid gold” – the olive oil, shall be organised at the refreshment point. This is a great opportunity to engage children in a short game “Hunt for the treasure of the Frankopans, Krk’s noble family”, a creative treasure hunt, following the instructions of a skilled guide. The route follows the coastline up to no. 6 cycling path to the Prniba peninsula – the perfect place for a relaxing off-road loop ride through pine wood. The route then follows the road back to the city of Krk, where all participants shall be awarded a free visit to the Frankopan castle.
