You can experience the Gorenjska region with the help of the Illustrated guide through Slovenian cultural attractions for cyclists by Ajda Fortuna.
This path through Upper Carniola takes you to Bled from Kranj with the Kamnik-Savinja Alps in the background.
The excursion begins with a circle through the old town of Kranj. Then you drive west on the marked cycling path over pastures and through villages. As you leisurely ride your bike, you can easily observe the nature and the traditional architectural styles.
After a shorter part uphill to Brezje there is another challenge to reach the Kamen castle. Then it's downhill to Radovljica, where you can see the permanent exhibition of Slovenian illustrations in the Šivec House and the Beekeeping Museum in the Baroque Radovljica Mansion.
Until the last steep hill in Bled, with the castle on top, there are some shorter sections on the way through Ribno that are a bit more demanding. The trip ends at the train station of Lesce, where you can take the train back to Kranj.
