We`re expecting you!
The first filled with adventures weekend took place in Borovets mountain bike park on 28-29th of May. There were a several reasons that this weekend was different than any other.
We opened for testing and riding our first family/all-mountain trail. The trail is 6km. long and passes through various terrain and sections: lush meadows, uphill single-track in shady woods, fast descent with great number of fun elements that can offer something interesting for any type of riders. This year we unite with Bike Ventures in order to develop the trails in the bike-park together and give you the best trails we can imagine. The newfound trail is just the beginning of our collaboration.
One of the most successful bicycle manufacture company Specialized carried out test rides of their latest bike models for Enduro, Cross-County, Downhill and Road riding. The event was part of the “Specilized test the best” campaign, during which anyone had the chance to try the latest Specialized models on the newfound all-mountain trail in Borovets.
The girls from Wildberries visited us, you can be sure that they had a good time by checking their short story and photos here.
After the good ride and a stroll in the nature we moved to the Terrace Lounge, they offered us some fresh cocktails and tasty food while we enjoyed the amazing view from the terrace. This made the perfect ending of a perfect day, and for some of us the night has just begun as we moved to After Eleven Night Club for the party!
Together with all of our guests we launched into summer season 2016, thanks to everyone who joined us in this adventure, we`re expecting you again anytime soon!
We had a rad weekend!
