About this item

Guidebook to 35 mountain biking routes in Slovenia. Ranging from 12km to 59km, the routes are circular, negating any need for logistical 'return' planning. Graded from Blue to Black, the routes range from technically not difficult but requiring a reasonable level of fitness to highly technical, requiring a high level of fitness and confident bike handling skills.

Showcasing a remarkably diverse landscape, Slovenia is an idyllic (and incredibly, little known) mountain biking destination. From the towering peaks of Gorenjska and the stunning riverside trails of the Soca Valley to the tremendous limestone caves of the Karst region and the forests of the Nanos plateau in the country's south, there is endless opportunity for tough climbs, long descents and technical trails – as well as scenic trips lakeside and through vineyard-laced landscapes.

Full route descriptions are accompanied by 1:75,000 mapping and gradient profiles, together with practical information such as getting to and around Slovenia, travelling with the bike, arranging accommodation and dealing with emergency situations. A handy Slovenian language glossary is also included.
