MTB race

Already the name of the event, Bale Under the Stars, reveals that it is an event that takes place in the late evening hours and presents a kind of attraction, both for participants and spectators. The entire cycling route runs through the town of Bale, whilst the most attractive parts are definitely in the core of the old town and in the Val della Mussa karst sinkhole in the centre of the town.

The cycling race will take place on the penultimate weekend in August, and the start time with pleasant summer temperatures usually attracts many curious people, among which a large number of tourists. The narrow streets of this charming little town are a bigger problem than the altitude difference, which is only 60 m over a 22 km long trail.

The entry-fee for this cycling event is 30 kuna and includes a meal. Enrolments can be made by e-mail to or just before the start of the event.
