ABOUT THE TOUR

Have you ever experienced to mountain bike at night? We have done it and we were amazed how much different the biking gets. While seeing things and objects get limited, other senses become much more sensitive and that is why biking at night is a game-changer.

The bike tour is going to take place at Rašica – a very popular mountain biking hill with loads of different biking trails that lies only a few minutes away from Ljubljana city centre. An hour or so before the sunset we will start to mountain bike on easy or more challenging bike trails towards the top of the hill with the sun’s rays warming us from the left side. We will try to reach the top before the sun goes down and enjoy the sunset on the lookout tower. There you will experience how the sun’s rays are slowly leaving Ljubljana valley, but still shining on the Julian Alps and Kamnik – Savinja Alps. After we will have some time for evening snack/drink at the mountain hut on the top and start our descent into the darkness of the night – no worries, everybody will be equipped with a biking torch. Slow, long and very easy descent is going to lead us through the forest and fields, finishing at the starting point of the bike tour.

With our night tour finished, we will take you back to the place you are staying, so you can take a well-desreved shower after a bit colder night bike ride.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

We believe smaller groups leads to better experience and we want to make sure that everybody gets the most out of cycling tour, so on every tour is maximum 5 people/cycling guide. If you are a larger group, please let us know in advance, so we can arrange cycling tour regarding your wishes, ambitions and skills.

May/June and September/October. Why? Good weather conditions (perfect temperature), colours, clear sky, good views, very quiet and best of all – this is the off season time for the tourists.

Every cycling tour is planed and organised by our professional mountain biking guide, who will make sure that you will have the best possible experience.

On every cycling tour we make a stop at a local restaurant where you can try different Slovenian cousine or just stop for a quick break and a coffee. But It is recommended for you to have some power bars and water bottle with you (you can refill it with fresh tap drinking water everywhere in Slovenia).

Since cycling is an outdoor activity, we suggest you to take comfortable outdoor sport clothes (sport shoes, short or long hiking/cycling pants, t-shirt, wind jacket, sunglasses and sun cream). If you have a small hiking/cycling backpack, take It with you so you can take all the necessary equipment with you.

First, we will let you know if there is a bad weather forecast for this exact day. If yes, then we will try to go to a different part of Slovenia (the coast, the east or the south of Slovenia) and do the cycling tour there. Every place is not more than an hour away from the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana and usually (especially summer) has more stable weather conditions. And last, YES you can cancel your cycling tour and get a full refund if you do not want the second option or the weather conditions are to bad for cycling.

You can either pay with cash or card (Mastercard, Visa, Apple pay etc.). Also there is an option for a bank transfer, but you should let us know in advance.
