This potential was also recognized by Bike Center Rabac, which opened its doors for the third time in a row and started the new season. Yes, cycling is much more than just bike trails. If we want to develop cycling tourism, then we must respect the basic rules of the profession, and not just mark the bike trails on the map (which in reality are not arranged according to standards) and brag about the development of cycling tourism. We have to complete and network the whole cycle story, and bike services as a support to cyclists are certainly an integral part of that. In the center you can find all the facilities that cyclists need in one place. There is a possibility of half-day or full-day rental of high quality Giant bikes and a large offer of electric and mechanical bikes for mountain and road cycling, as well as bike transfer services, and all families who come to Rabac on vacation with the youngest can rent children’s bikes with seats. If during their stay in the Bike Center Rabac, visitors decide to buy a bicycle, they can do so in the Bike shop where they will find the latest models of the Giant brand, as well as accessories and spare parts. Bike Park Rabac – the first park of its kind in Croatia In addition to the Bike Center, there is an entrance to the Bike Park Rabac, the first of its kind on the Adriatic where visitors can test their skills. The park consists of 18 specialized single trail and ﬂ ow trail trails with sand or natural surface of different weights for beginners and more advanced mountain bikers, two family multi-purpose trails and two pump track training grounds. Entrance to the Bike Park is free for locals and guests at the destination. In recent years, Istria has stood out as one of the most popular destinations for professional cyclists, but also those eager for recreation and activities, primarily due to the attractiveness of the destination, the number and variety of bike trails and quality infrastructure, services and accommodations tailored to cyclists. Bike Center Rabac is part of the offer of Valamar Collection Girandella Resort 4 * / 5 * and is a top cycling destination in the immediate vicinity of the Adriatic Sea intended for professional and recreational cyclists, but also the local population and guests in the destination. In addition, the comprehensive service of the center is adapted to active families with children. “In addition to a large cycling offer, in the Bike Center Rabac we have prepared a wide range of guided tours of all weights in the destination and beyond, but also various programs for children and the whole family. Visitors to the center can also get free information on the offer of destinations for cyclists, attractive trails, current offers and upcoming events. We are looking forward to the upcoming tourist season and another successful season in front of the Bike Center”, pointed out Roberto Zahtila, head of the Bike Center Rabac.
