Bikepacking Slovenia: A Gravel Bike Adventure

Earlier this month Ariel from our tours team set of to get to know Slovenia and tested our new Slovenia gravel tour itinerary. Here's his photo diary.

Slovenia is a small country with a huge amount to offer to cyclists. With the Julian Alps to the west, Lake Bled, small wine regions, and a gorgeous capital city, there’s nothing not to love. Ariel set off on a 400 km gravel ride to get to know the country, people & trails. Here is what he found!

Day 1: Ljubljana to Luçe, 100 km, 1,822 m

Day 2: Luçe to a hillside near Plansarsko Jezero, 75 km, 1,900 m

Day 3: Plansarsko Jezero to Bohinj, 110 km, 1,500 m

Day 4: Bohinj to Bled, train to Ljubljana, 75 km, 1,200 m

The bike has always been an escape for me - a way to get rid of the stresses of the day, to set myself a physical & mental challenge, to meet great people and have ton of fun.

After years of studying, working in the sustainability sector and road racing on the UK circuit, I moved from London to Girona to pursue the dream of professional cycling.

Instead, something more incredible happened - I co-founded Eat Sleep Cycle in the cycling capital of Europe, Girona.

We create & deliver beautiful cycling tours all over Europe. We love what we do and that shows in our work.
