There's like cycling through the mountains. Fresh air, forests, and those challenging ascents. In mid-July, you can take part in the Gorski Kotar Bike Tour and spend three days cycling the woods, valleys and the highland rivers and lakes of the region.

This cycling event is targeted at those that love cycling in mountainous terrain immersed in nature and want to have a memorable two wheel experience along with other cycling enthusiasts. The route is over 150km long and consists of gravel paths, forest trails and a small portion of sealed roads.

Day 1

The event begins at Kamačnik where cyclists will ride along the Dobra river towards Brod Moravicama and then be challenged with several descents and a thigh burning ascent to Skrad. From there you'll head for Leskove Drage where you'll stop for a tasting and check out the old mill. Then it's a climb to Petehovac followed by a descent into Delnicama where you'll spend the night. 

Day 2

After a good nights sleep, day 2 of this cycling adventure kicks off from Delnice and head through Sunger towards Brestova Draga and onto Mrkopalj. From here it's to the highest point of the entire event in Tuk. Then it's a short climb to the Austro-Hungarian Karolina road which you will follow  

Day 3 

On day 3 you'll be cycling to some of the Winnetou film locations where you can explore them for yourself. The day starts with you heading to Sović Laza and Lazac to the "cowboy town" Roswell and you can check out the Wild West. Then you'll descend to lake Bajer and Fužine, where you'll catch the train back to Vrbovsko.

This event is from July 15th - 17th and you can register and find more information here.
