Ljubljana

Tour from the romantic town of Bled, gently cycling through Alpine meadows and pastures, passing pretty wooden huts and unique hay racks to the east side of Lake Bohinj with its beautiful clear waters, stone bridge and 14th century church. Continue along a green, flat valley floor beside a fast flowing river before climbing slowly through the forest to the Jelovica high plateau or opt for an uplift.

Swoop down the winding path through a deep forested valley and pretty hamlets with small churches to reach Skofja Loka, Slovenia’s most preserved medieval town. Continue through small forests, along gravel tracks across farmland and on narrow asphalt paths through small villages to Ljubljana, Slovenia's capital city, with its mighty castle and wonderful pavement cafe atmosphere.
