This pleasant and dynamic cycling path leads through low-traffic gravel roads and the educational trail along the river to the park of Brdo or even to Preddvor. It is suitable for trekking and mountain bikes.
If you start in the centre of town, you drive past the Prešeren Grove on Partizanska Street. At the traffic lights, you go straight ahead to the stadium and sports centre, where the Cycling path 10 is marked. It leads down to the river and over the bridge, then left along a dirt road to a small slope that is so steep that you have to walk it.

So you cross the main road and head in the direction of the village Suha. The path runs along the river and there is also an educational trail al the way to the village of Breg ob Kokri. From here you can drive to Preddvor (5 minutes), where you can relax at the lake Črnjava. Or you can choose another path in Breg ob Kokri that goes around the park of Brdo and then on the gravel road back to Kranj.
When you reach the main road, keep to the sidewalk on the right side, then cross the road and take the asphalt road across the fields towards Ilovka, down to the bridge and then again under the highway bridge to Rupa.
