The 3rd edition of TBT Race took place on 20 August, starting and finishing in Saschiz and counted almost 500 participants.
Two trails: a 75 km one for the advanced competitors and a 40 km one for the beginners. The route passed through areas designated as bike trail network, grassy hills , forest roads, streets of old villages, the fortified churches’ courts, and the long route will pass through Saschiz fortified church, up on the hill.
At the same time, the race was an opportunity to explore the local Saxon history and culture, every year we start and finish the route in one of the 8 villages connected through this bike trail network: Viscri – Bunești – Criț – Meșendorf – Cloașterf – Saschiz – Archita – Daia.
Before and after the race, the visitors had the opportunity to explore the area and indulge into its particular charm. We organised different activities and walking trips in the area, meeting the local producers and craftsmen.
The trophies and medals of the race were made by our skilled local craftsmen. This year our pottery makers had a surprise for the participants, preparing some special pottery medals with a high touch of the local place.
