Some of you may now we will celebrate 20 years of AZUB next year. Some of you may also know that we organize a recumbent meeting at our place in Uherský Brod every 5 years. Some of you may have heard there was a pre-meeting tour in 2015 and we are going to organize it again in 2020. And because there have been some questions asked already here is some basic first info.
The meeting will be most likely organized in the first half of September 2020. There are many things involved and nothing was decided yet. We don’t know when EUROBIKE will be, we don’t know other events’ dates. So we expect to announce the exact day sometime in January/February 2020. It will most likely be from Thursday to Sunday.
The pre-meeting tour will most likely start in Vienna on Saturday and here is a basic plan I (Honza from AZUB) have had in mind for last few months: On Saturday we will meet together and have an evening walk through Vienna city center. We will cycle through Vienna on Sunday. There are great bike lanes everywhere and I know the city very very well. We will see a couple of great sights and will end up in some accommodation east of Vienna. We will cycle towards Bratislava the Slovakian capital on Monday and will visit the city center as well. We will then follow the Morava river and border between Slovakia and Austria to the north. After crossing to Czech we will visit the UNESCO sites in Lednice which will be some time in Tuesday/Wednesday and will continue to cycle to Uhersky Brod then so we are there for the meeting.
– We will sleep in hotels.
– Some bikes will be available for rent, but if you can have your own one (does not need to be AZUB) it would be great to take it with you.
– We will have a support car and you don’t need to cycle with us all day long.
– Average daily kilometers will be around 70 to 80 / 45 to 50 miles.
We will ride mostly on cycling paths or very quiet roads. We will safely enjoy two big cities, but mostly countryside, meadows, forests and small local pubs where a beer can cost as less as single USD. We will ride in a group(s) and you won’t need to care about navigation or anything else. If you want a review of the previous trip, write to Kelvin from Angletech 🙂
If this pre-meeting tour is interesting for you, just let us know in the comments below. Same, if you have any comments or questions. Please, don’t use the official company email as guys in the sales team have almost no idea about the pre-meeting tour and the meeting itself. At least not now 🙂
You can get basic idea about the meeting itself from the video below. We expect about 200 riders from around the world and will have a lot of fun together!
