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.

You will probably get hungry while cycling, but there is nothing to worry about. Many providers along the cycling circle will be happy to serve you their delicacies. The others will be more than happy to offer you accommodation if you want to stay in the Poljanska Valley for more than one day. There are more than enough reasons to visit the Poljanska Valley by bike, and you will definitely be enchanted by it and will love to come back.
