Association "HerzegovinaBike" announces a cycling event Ciro Trail Neum Hinterland (Hutovo – Neum) which will take place on Sunday 02.6.2024. starting at 10:00 in front of the district school in Hutovo Selo. It is important to say that this is the second time that the Ćiro bicycle race has been run through this section, and it is certain that all participants will be delighted. We from the organization are looking forward to this event.
Yes, you read that right, we're taking you to Neum for lunch and swimming!

Biciklijada se realizira uz financijsku potporu: Općine Neum, tvrtke HT Eronet, Continental Tires, Turističke Zajednice HNŽ/K, Škoda Apolo, agencije REDAH i Capriolo SC Mostar , and in order to promote "South Herzegovina and the Ćiro Narrow Gauge Railway".

The fourth in a row Ćira's bicycle race in 2024 is leading us od Hutova sela do općine Neum, along a path 25 km long in one direction, while we will accumulate some 50 km in both directions. This is the first time that the Ćiro bicycle race is organized on this section, and we will drive on the old road towards Neum, which is no longer traffic-free and we find it ideal for cycling. Also, we will be accompanied by a van with groceries and water, and for those who find cycling in both directions too much, there is an option to transfer you to your vehicles in Hutovo Selo after lunch and possible swimming in Neum.
The trail is attractive and lively with beautiful landscapes and an asphalt surface, so it is suitable for all types of bicycles. As we said, this is a very nice section, where we drive through rural areas, visiting villages on the section from Hutovo to Neum. We finish the bike ride in Neum, where the hosts have prepared refreshments and lunch for all participants, which is why we need your registrations so we know how many people we need to count on for meals.

The return to Hutovo village, the starting point of the bicycle tour, is individual or group, that is, according to personal preferences, because we return the same way we came.

MORE INFORMATION:

The bike ride starts in front of the district school in Hutovo Selo (LINK LOKACIJE STARTA), where all participants have a large parking lot at their disposal and can park their vehicles and drink coffee in a local cafe before the start of our bike ride. The start of the bike ride and the beginning of our socializing is planned for 10:00 a.m., and the bike ride goes along the road that used to lead to Neum for a length of 25 km, it is currently free of traffic and we find it ideal for cycling. It is important to mention that the section is attractive, it contains several shorter climbs, but again it is not too demanding, and all participants will have a van to accompany them in case they feel too much cycling. There is also an option for a van to transport those who find 50 km too much cycling to transfer from Neum to Hutovo sela, where their vehicles are parked. The participants of the cycling event will also have at their disposal 10 volunteers, experienced cyclists who will take care of the safety of all participants during cycling and take care of any unforeseen situation, and remove it as soon as possible.

The entire route has an asphalted surface on which, in addition to MTB bikes, you can also ride trekking or road bikes. The driving pace is easy and suitable for most participants.

Volunteers, a service vehicle, photos and video from the bike ride are available to all participants, and they are provided with: refreshments, water and first aid in the service vehicle...

HISTORY OF CIRO:

In the past, a narrow-gauge railway with a steam locomotive ran from Mostar along the Neretva river, through Čapljina, Popovo polje, Ravno, and in the town of Hum (the main railway junction) it split into two tracks, where one leads to Trebinje and on to Bileća and Nikšić , and the other branch to Uskoplje (that is, Zelenica and Dubrovnik). It is important to emphasize that in the town of Uskoplje (2km before Ivanica) we had another junction, where one branch goes to Zelenica (Montenegro), and the other to Dubrovnik (Croatia).

Construction of the railway began in 1898 and ended in 1901. During its existence, Ćiro connected places in Herzegovina and brought them life, and today the railway has been reconstructed into a bicycle path.
