Cross-border Bicycle Tour – „Hungarian-Serbian Tandem” on the European Cooperation Day
21. September 2013.

Around 300 participants are expected at the 28-kilometer-long bicycle tour from Mórahalom, in Hungary, to Palić, in Serbia, crossing the recently opened border-crossing point Ásotthalom-Bački Vingradi in the third week of September. The „Hungarian-Serbian Tandem” Bicycle Tour will be organized as part of the Hungarian-Serbian IPA Cross-border Co-operation Programme’s celebration of European Cooperation Day on 21 September. The aim of the Tour is to strenghten the cross-border relations through a sports and cultural event.

Organizers expect participants from both Hungary and Serbia to the cross-border tour that emphasizes the strong relations of the two nations and the fact that the new border-crossing station brought the people of the region within a „two-wheel” distance from each other. Registration is free for all participants (who will also receive small gifts) but it will be limited, so we strongly advise all bicycle lovers to register on the event website (www.hu-srb-tandem.eu) in due time.

The bicycle convoy will start out from Mórahalom, Hungary, and after refreshments and the border-crossing at Ásotthalom will continue through Bački Vinogradi and Hajdukovo to Palić, Serbia, where the weary bikers will enjoy cold drinks and a colorful cultural program on the shore of the Palić lake. Although the participants are individual citizens, the tour is truly about two nations – Hungary and Serbia – and their joint efforts. It is highly important to show that we are able to stay on the same track and share the same goals, as good neighbours creating a common future.

On this day several similar events will take place throughout Europe as part of the European Cooperation Day with the aim to bring border communities closer.

The event is funded by the IPA Cross Border Cooperation Programme, a pre-accession program supporting Serbia\'s EU accession.

Today we use interactive maps more often than printed versions. Interactive maps are more practical and give us more information that the other ones. So apart from our printed Guide through the border crossings between Hungary and Serbia, we created an interactive map to help you plan your journey across the borders. Please click on the map and enjoy the trip through the region.
