CLIMATE CONSCIOUS BIKE TRAVEL-POLAND

Finally found a window of free-time😃. I haven’t bike toured since Czech, last year! I wanted to ride Budapest to Belgrade, but the weather was too hot for me. So I chose Climate friendly Poland with average summer temperatures of 20-25.

I grabbed the train in Ljubljana to Vienna, arriving at 22, I stayed the night in Vienna.

Only bike on the train from Ljubljana

KAMFEST & VELENJE is “BEST BEACH IN SLOVENIA”

I was bike touring around Slovenia, with Stanley from France, a few years ago.  We stumbled into Kamniks Festival-KamFest.  They filled the old town with high quality crafts, chopper bicycle show, food, music and “FREE BEER” from Mali Grad Brewery.  I biked back last week, to re-live this great event.
