The sixth in a row Ćira's bicycle race in 2024 takes us from Počitelje to the city of Stolac, along a path 30 km long in one direction, while we will accumulate some 60 km in both directions. This is the third time that the Ćiro bicycle race has been organized on this section, and we will ride on asphalted sections towards Stolac, where there is almost no traffic 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 vehicle in Počitelj after visiting Stolac (the number of places for transport is limited).

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 Počitelje to Stolac. We end the bike ride in Stolac, with a tour of the stećak necropolis of Radimlje and the Old Town of Vidoški, and the hosts have provided refreshments 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 Počitelj, 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 President Hotel in Čapljina (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 leads to Počitelj (towards Domanovići) and on to Stolac, 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 60 km too much cycling to transfer from Stolac to Čapljina, 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 is paved with asphalt (mild macadam in a few places) on which, in addition to the MTB bike, you can also ride a trekking or road bike. 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.
