Climbing

Past weekend I had a chance to spend some time in warmer climate of my hometown. The weather was warm so I used it to do a bike ride on Biokovo mountain. Its highest peak is called “sveti Jure” and it’s third highest peak in Croatia at 1762m above see level. The road that leads there is highest paved road in the country and the climb is almost 30km long if you start from the sea level in Makarska. I arrived from another direction so I only had to climb for 23km.

Here’s the link to the ride: strava | garmin
