"THE RELIEF EXPEDITION TO VIENNA"
Vilnius 08.02 – Warsaw 08.16 – Vienna 08.30 – Salzburg 09.09
In 2013 we will celebrate 10th anniversary of cooperation between CROTOS Travellers Association and GMPR Lithuanian Fund – the first common ride which connected capitals of our home countries Warsaw and Vilnius in 2003. At the same time it will be 15th anniversary of the GMPR – Great Millennium Peace Ride – which started in 1998 on Hiroshima Memorial Day in Seattle, and laid a background for the future BaltiCCycle expeditions in different parts of the world.
We will repeat the BaltiCCycle 2003 route at the same dates (August 2-17) but this time cycling the opposite direction – from Vilnius to Warsaw. From Warsaw we will extend our route to Vienna (August 18-30), from where Martin Hausmaniger invites us for the ride to Salzburg (August 31 – September 9). The route recalls the historical relief expedition to Vienna led by Jan III Sobieski – King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania – to rescue Christian Europe from the Ottoman Empire in 1683.
More info about the route and ride conditions will be announced in January.
