This year the weather was great and allowed to enjoy the ride and the beautiful scenery of Kuldīga and of course the fresh air.

There were 3 different routes for the day ride, the most popular 28km, 12km and for the strongest 42km including crossing the river which was especially pleasant as the sun was intense and the cyclists were very thirsty, in only one of the water stops they consumed 200l of water.

This year the oldest participant was 86 yr old Edgars Račis, but the youngest Gundega Strautmane born in 2015, she was rewarded with children bicycle DIP-DAP.
