On August 21st the city of Vilnius will host the cycling competition “Velomarathon” for the 7 year in a row. In 2010 acclaimed as the “The year sports event” in Lithuania, “Velomarathon” seeks to consolidate four core values in the lithuanian cycling culture: family, health, road safety and the environment.
“We want to create a spectacular feast to the cycling enthusiasts. “Velomarathon” is more than a sports event, it is also a platform for current social issues and an attraction centre of the positive and socially active people”,- said the organizer, the National Automobile Club Director, Benediktas Vanagas.
The race will be divided into three groups: childrens, amateurs, and sports. The track of the “Velomarathon” is situated at the very heart of Vilnius, the old town.
