Slovenia, including Monte Zoncolan

2nd September 2023 - 9th September 2023

Cycle Tour Of Slovenia, Including Monte Zoncolan

This cycle tour of Slovenia and neighbouring Italy will showcase the absolute best riding in the Julian Alps. Slovenia is a stunning small country sandwiched between Italy, Croatia, Hungary and Austria.

Messrs Roglic and Pogacar have certainly helped to put this beautiful nation on the map.

Our six days of riding will include the beautiful lakes at Bled and Bohinj before heading to the cobbled climb of Vrsic that climbs out of Kranjska Gora.

We’ll enjoy the beautiful Soca valley and move on to the highest and most challenging climb in Slovenia, the Mangart Saddle.

STOP PRESS! – Seeing the incredible recent time trial in the Giro that took the pros up Monte Lussari we’ve decide that we’re going to ride it too! Only recently paved for the Giro, this seriously tough climb is open to cyclists this summer, but only for going up! The obligatory descent is done by cable car! This is one of the most spectacular places you could ever dream of and will be an exciting new addition to this trip.

The latter part of this trip will see us ride into Italy with brief sorties into Austria too.

Monte Zoncolan will be our final day challenge, with its 10 kilometres at a 12 per cent gradient –  a tough finale to this dramatically beautiful tour.

Details of each day’s route for this tour will appear here soon.

Each day of the tour will involve 80 – 120kms of riding with 1500 – 2500m of climbing.

As with all of our tours adventurous riders will always have the opportunity to do more if required!

During the Slovenia tour, riding distances won’t be huge, but the climbing will sometimes be very steep.

Monte Zoncolan and several other climbs on this tour will provide a significant challenge to any level of rider.

The main prerequisites for the Slovenia Trip are that you come prepared and are happy to ride for 5-6 hours each day.

Most riders on this trip will have already ridden in high mountains, but not always.
