Ičići Tourist Bord in cooperation with AD Natura Sport organizes new outdoor event “King of Učka“ which will be held on September 29th 2018.

King of Učka is a recreational road bike race which leads from Ičići, from sea level, to the highest peak of Učka mountain – Vojak.

The road from Ičići, which begins on the sea level and leads to Vojak, the peak of Ucka mountain, is the perfect cycling playground and a challenge for all cycling enthusiasts and hill climb lovers.

Whether you are a professional cyclist, an amateur or just a weekend warrior, this climb will not leave you indifferent, it will leave you breathless. To get to the top you will have to squeeze the pedals very hard. But you will be rewarded with a gorgeous view from the top and a fantastic downhill back to the sea.

This is Učka, our mountain, she ask a lot, but she gives a lot. That’s why we love her and we’re coming back again.

The climb to Učka is one of the standard stages of a great cycling race through Croatia – Tour of Croatia.
2016. STAGE 4: Crikvenica-Ucka  2017. STAGE 5: Porec-Ucka (Poklon)

It is worth mentioning that Učka mountain is the place where the last few decades were held Croatian hill climb championships.

Be a part of this wonderful story. Accept the challenge, train hard and maybe you become the first King of Učka.
