Mountain Biking / Cycling

The Green House, Mojstrana, North West Slovenia

There is an extensive array of on road and off road tracks that vary from very easy to extremely difficult.

Like the trekking, there is so much cycling it is hard to know where to begin.

Perhaps two of the easiest cycle rides are from Mojstrana to Kranjska Gora (or further to Tarvisio) on the D2 cycle track. and from Radovna to Bled. However, getting to Radovna involves a hard climb out of the village or a willing volunteer to drive you and your bikes to the top of the hill. Cycling around the Bled and Radovna area is also very easy. Further afield there is easy cycling near Bohinj, Kranj and Brnik.

Entering Slovenia on the D2 after riding from London
Moderately difficult rides can be had virtually everywhere but especially around Skofja Loka which has a very well organised array of off road tracks. Closer to home, there are some gravel tracks such as the one off the road towards Kranjska Gora after Belca, or through the village of Dovje. These are both very steep but the tracks themselves pose no difficulties and bend regularly giving tired legs a bit of a break.

Very difficult climbs include the Vršič pass just outside of Kranjska Gora, the road up to Vrata from Mojstrana and the road to Pokljuka. These are steeper and longer than the other two climbs but again the road surface makes them bearable.  If you are going to attempt any of them, remember to take supplies and tell someone where you are going. Note that in Kranjska Gora on the first weekend in September there is the Vršič pass cycle race that is open to all.

There is also a downhill bike park in Kranjska Gora – well worth going to even if it is just to watch! Take the chair lift to the start of the summer toboggan run and you will pass over part of the course.
6 adult bikes are available to use by people renting the house and their are two junior bikes. Further bikes can be rented from Kofler Sport.

The Slovene Tourist authority have an excellent brochure on cycle routes in Slovenia which can be obtained from the tourist office near the bridge.
