The biggest Rocky Mountain Bike World Jasná with 25 km of tracks offering various levels of difficulty can attract not only downhill and freeride lovers but also those who come to Mt. Chopok to enjoy their holiday, cable car trips or hiking trips in the area. “The Bike World Jasná is there for everybody. It offers all types of tracks so even families with children who are still not sure what to do in the summer will love it. Cycling is an ideal way how to ´start oneself up´ before the summer and discover the beauties of the Low Tatras on two wheels. The unique Bike Up & Down event unites various groups of bikers at one race. No matter if you are a mountain, endurance, downhill or freeride biker. The race is designed for every biker to manage both – a 2.5km-long ascent and a 3.5km-long downhill. Bike Up starts at Bielá Púť, continues through Priehyba up to Rovná Hoľa. Bike Down is a downhill race from Rovná Hoľa crosswise to Jelení Grúň up to Záhradky. The programme is rich. Boating on a lake in the area of Biela Púť and a bungee trampoline will be available within happy hours from 11:00 to 13:00 for 1 EUR only. And in the afternoon, from 13:00 to 15:00, everybody can try mountain carts down a forest road from Mt. Chopok,“ informed Matej Hulej, director of Tatry Motion sports services and shops.

The resort of Jasná has something to offer also for bikers-beginners who are still deciding whether to come to Jasná and enjoy the biggest biking paradise under Mt. Chopok. At the beginning of the summer, on 10th – 13th July, they can learn how to master and develop their bike skills with professionals – at a Rocky Mountain Bike Camp. It´s the fifth year that a special 4-day camp will be organised and will offer various workshops with professional bike instructors, courses in the terrain, demo rides with an additional programme, new experience and friends of the bike community to meet.
