The “Čiker” Cycling Marathon 2024 has arrived in Zlatibor. On the second day of the marathon, cyclists are enjoying a challenging ride full of spectacular scenery through the vast expanses of Zlatibor. After 10 days of riding through the most beautiful regions of Serbia and the Republic of Srpska, the marathon concludes in Pale on July 2nd. Covering a distance of 400 km, cyclists travel from Kraljevo through Guča, Arilje, Zlatibor, Tara, Višegrad, Rogatica, Sokolac, and Pale.

The goal of organizing the marathon is both sporting and touristic. In addition to promoting cycling as a sport, a mode of transportation, and a healthy lifestyle, it also promotes the tourist and cultural potential of both countries. This unique race passes through mountainous regions, visiting tourist centers as well as cultural and other landmarks in these areas. Due to the gentle ascents and descents of the terrain, cycling in Zlatibor is a true delight for lovers of this sport.

MTBC “Čiker” from Kraljevo was established on October 25, 1996, as a citizens’ association with 16 members. Today, the club has about 50 members of different ages. MTBC “Čiker” was initially formed as a recreational club, but soon a competitive section was also established.

In the world of mountain biking, MTBC “Čiker” is also known for organizing multi-day recreational tours. Since 2012, MTBC “Čiker,” in collaboration with tourism organizations from Serbia and Montenegro, has been organizing the “ČikerMTBmarathon,” which starts in Kraljevo and ends in a city in Montenegro. In its first year, the marathon was part of the IPA project: “Sustainable Development of Cycling,” which was recognized as the best cross-border cooperation project in 2012 and was funded by the EU.
