Each year on the last Sunday in September, Vižinada becomes a gathering place for recreational cyclists of all ages. The Parenzana recreational bike marathon is an opportunity for Vižinada to demonstrate all competitors and its guests, how the path of the former railway line is a place where you can experience idyllic local views and see the best what Istria has to offer. The marathon is 46.7 km long and at the end of the cycling season this is the highlight of the recreational cycling season in Istria and Croatia. All competitors drive on an asphalt route, while the section from Ponte Porton to Vižinada is competitive. Besides the bike marathon, there is also a 10 km organized walking tour for hikers, along with visits to local wineries and olive growers, where refreshments are waiting.
