Our colleague and correspondent Aleš Tajták, from Slovakia, prepared a divide for you this year across Slovakia - Slovakia Divide 2021.
As of today, registration for this unique Slovakia Divide 2021 event will be launched.
Slovakia Divide is a nonstop bikepacking event without support. The divide route takes in beautiful Slovak nature from west to east. The route starts just outside Bratislava under the ridge of Malé Karpat (around Modra) and ends in the eastern part of Slovakia under Bukovské Vrchy (around Stakčín). The launch is 31.7.2021.
Throughout the race, which is 710 km in total, participants will replicate the various ridges of Slovakia’s mountains, dales, and sample the genuine genuine wilderness of a 200-km ridge where only a few mountain estates in the saddles of a ridge will be the only sign of civilization.
During the Slovakia Divide you climb over 15,600 metres.
