The Gorenja vas Municipality Cycling Circle runs roughly along the borders of eponymous municipality seeking out the finest spots with the loveliest views where cyclists might stop, have a look around, get some rest and enjoy a snack. The trails are charming and safe, leading cyclist past monuments of cultural and historical importance as well as places offering overnight accommodation, food, and beautiful views.
The entire route is rather long and, for the average cyclist, quite strenuous. It is therefore divided into three stages, and the latter into sub-stages that can be undertaken independently. The total length of the Cycling Circle is 116 kilometers, with 3.400 altitude meters of ascents and descents.

At Ajda Café in Gorenja vas, cyclists receive control cards with marked checkpoints where they can enter stamps outlining their progress in the Cycling Circle. The checkpoints are also marked on the map. Once all 16 stamps are collected, that is after cycling the entire route, cyclists can participate in drawing for a reward, which take place every spring for last year at the opening of the new cycling season.
