Hungarian Divide

Bikepacking adventure to medieval castles and beyond!

The Hungarian Divide is the largest national ultra cycling trail, where you can adventure west-east across the country for almost 1400 km, passing many historic sites along the roads of our central mountains.

The self-supported format is an exciting mix of physical and mental challenge, where only the most prepared can finish. Not everyone can be first, but everyone who completes it wins.

The terrain: The route of the Hungarian Divide is mostly on terrain, “wild” roads. The proportion of sections where advanced technical skills are required shall not exceed 2% of the total length. Since this is not a race, many people get off in these parts with safety in mind and push the bike with noble simplicity.
Climbs: There are several difficult ascents on the route that require a lot of effort, which is why we recommend those sections for beginners only as a team or with an ebike. These sections are marked in advance in the route file so that you can prepare individually / as a team.

In pairs:
a basic level of training, but confident and practised technical skills are required. Together with peers, with technical knowledge, it can be accomplished by anyone who has the right bike. You can read about recommended bicycle choices in another question.
Individual: advanced cycling training, strong technical foundations, outstanding problem-solving skills, experience gained on self-sufficient tours are required. Completing such a challenge alone requires tremendous mental strength, focus, motivation in addition to those listed.

If you’re unsure based on what you’ve read and would prefer to gain experience in shorter events, we recommend our Gravel Series and the Balaton Bike Derby.

At the Hungarian Divide, we recommend starting with a bicycle with at least 45 mm wide tires. For comfort, the wider the better, the most comfortable solution is a mountain bike with 2 ″ (50mm) tires. Gravel bikes are also very popular and are also suitable, and we recommend a minimum 45 mm tyre size. In addition to the bike, the “pilot” is also important, you need to be able to operate your machine very confidently, even in difficult terrain.

The preliminary handbook of the Hungarian Divide will be sent to the starters approximately before the start of the event. 30 days.

The pairs category is simple: you will be given a tracking device (GPS tracker) which you must carry around the course together, no switching. You will appear as a team on the GPS tracking page of the event.

If you are entering as a pair, you will need to nominate a team captain who will handle the registration and payment for the whole team. After a successful team entry, the team captain will receive an email with instructions on what other team members need to do. You can find a more detailed description in the team tickets.

Yes, however, teams with at least 1 E-Bike participant will qualify as an E-Bike team.

This year will be no separate categories for racing. We will start as 1 big peloton, and drafting is allowed. This year, participants who treat the event as a competition will be able to go along with others.

The route is still being planned, but we can tell you that it will largely cover the 2021 divide route, running east-west. The final route, downloadable gpx file, is expected at the end of the permitting process, by the end of May.
