Croatia - Islandhopping and Endurofeeling

Hi, my name is Markus, i`m a 47 year old german and this is not a real ridereport, because the bike is riding on a trailer from Germany to Croatia. this has two reasons. first, my bike is a 2003 MZ Baghira and second, my wife has a huge beautycase
So we run with our Volkswagen an the MZ on back to our first location, the island of Cres. A island with fantastic landscape a some unpaved roads in the north
Our first stop was Valun, a small Village, only one road from the hill to the harbour, no cars allowed, instead of suppliers.
view from the hill


from seaside


the harbour, only 50 m long, four restaurants and one cafe


first time on the bike. view from Cres (near Beli) in the back is the island Krk


a short video, the street to beli. sorry my videos are without music, without sectacular stunts ....

in front the new road and the cobblestone old road with a wooden bridge in the back


the expression says "no, not really"


later on, crusing around, i found the old cobblestone road, maybe centuries-old
if you are riding on, this road goes direct to the village of beli, you will be arriving next to the restaurant. ... if looks could kill

about a third of the northern part from Cres is a fenced nature park. last breeding habitat of eurasian griffon.
the gate of the habitat was open, but for me, of course it was end of the road.


but ... there was along the outside a track. a real endurotrack, 2mls down the sea. and at the end of the track, there were to new houses, only accesible with boat or over the track i came.


nice endurotrack


the way back along the fence
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKwkr1oMix8&feature=plcp

this village, 4 houses, 10 mls apart from the next paved street is called Ivanje


another village, called Niska. i want to buy this house, but there was no one around to ask.....


nearby Filozici, an artist is working with wood. nice idea in the outback, far away from any road


somewhere in the forest.


later, on the street, a nice view to the capitol city, named like the island Cres


typical mediterranean harbour


fresh friuts for the tourists


and there is a unpaved track from Cres to Valun, were our B&B was. 10mls through oilve grove, not really ambitious but nice to ride, fantastic view

bay of valun


oh markus, open and close cattlegates, don`t overrun them... :-)



thanks for watching, more soon, if you want

next island, short stop on Rab. we visited the city, a artists quarter



every inner courtyard is a showroom. potter, painter ...







watching ships is a preference of me



the following three days it was raining and we startet a tour through national state parks
first Vransko Jezero a bird reserve, because of muddy swamp you have to walk on planks





next was Krka national park, but not watching the falls, just walking in the park





back to town Sibenik i advise the road over Roski Slap, but choose better weather.
a new, well paved road goes down to the river and then it turns into a oneway on stilts



note the road where we came from in the mirror ..

After that, we rode down south to the so called Makarska Riviera



Makarska has a beautiful historic city, nice place to be, drink cappuccino


nice people at the harbour , fantastic scenery


selling fresh fish early in the morning. no, i`m not the guy in the blackandwhite underwear...


ok, another ship.....i like it


but the best at Makarska is the Biokovo natural resort, a small tollway from 300meters above sealevel up to the top of the Sveti Jure (that means Saint George) at 1762 meters above sealevel. toll is 40 Kuna, but if you did not get a reciept, the man at the gate put the money in his own pocket

the tollway is a fantastic paved narrow road, but watch out, there a a lot of wild horses, donkeys runnin around




above treeline a fantastic view early in the morning to the islands Brac and Hvar


i rode every track to alpin cabins......this time i lost my front mudguard.... i dont know how or when, thereto later....


the rope marks the depth of the snow in winter


on the top (there is a weather- and radiostation) the whole riviera 1800 meters down below


there ist a small chapel on the top, a short walk, the highest chapel in croatia dedicated to Sveti Jure (Saint George)


a lot of tracks, all blind end


backcountry of the riviera.......Bosnia in background


want more?
