That is usually, how a day at Golovec bike tour looks like. Usually we do six different trails per day, but of course, we always adjust the length and intensity to every individual in the group.
Bike tour was about to start, when the morning was still shrouded in fog when it was under Golovec already feel the impatience of six British riders determined to descent down the forest single trail. But first it was necessary to push the pedals into a steep hill, just a bit over 5 kilometers long. On a quiet morning birds whisper, it was heard only panting from the satisfied visitors, who were sweating hard, to accomplish the ascent . After 20 minutes of climbing, the troop reached the top and had a nice earned rest. Fascinated by the beauty of bushy trees that adorn the Ljubljana’s hill, they forgot the pain in the legs and eagerly awaited the descent.
We dropped down the hill and tried to deal with the jumps, berms, and other obstacles, on the carefully arranged biking trail. There were falls, there were shouts, heard the laughter and joy … But nothing could replace that magical feeling when we reached the finish. In a word, fantastic, were unanimous English tourists.
That was of corse just the first run… We did five more that day, so in the end, there over 1000m of climbing and 30km in total leinght, has been done.
Slovenian lunch followed at a nearby restaurant while enthusiastically planning, where and on which hill to go the next day. Relaxed socializing is shifted deep into the night, when the riders were pleasantly tired went to the hotel and slowly prepare for a night walk through the capital city of Slovenia. But … you know what happens in Ljubljana, stays in Ljubljana.
