I’ve spent the past 10 years bicycling around Slovenia, occasionally hitching a ride with my bike on a train, bu,s or ride share. The covid summer of 2021 made crossing the borders encumbering. With my new electric assist bike I rode 5,000 km, just in Slovenia. I want to share the joys of Bicycling in Slovenia. I’ve decided to share the routes with all the necessary information needed to have a super cycling adventure in Slovenia. I give suggestions for Budget travel like camping but also unique tree house accommodations. The official cycling companies charge as much as 600euro for a planned route. My hope is people will appreciate the information & send me a much appreciated donation. If you have questions you’re free to email me at email@example.com
This is a list of my favorite rides, & visits in Slovenia (so far). I have a lot of tours to share and will be adding new routes all the time. Most tours start in Ljubljana, but can be started & ended anywhere you choose. The days stated are for riding with no added activities or touring combined with activities. I lists the various activity options like rafting, hiking, canyoning, pubing, day bike trips, swimming, and restaurants.
MAKING RESERVATIONS IS A MUST IN JUNE, JULY & AUGUST
