The starting point of this beautiful yet very challenging cycling route is in front of the Tourist Information Centre at the square Glavni trg in Kamnik. The route takes you towards the valley Tuhinjska dolina, through the settlement Potok and on towards the Snovik Spa – from the thermal swimming pool complex through the valley of the stream Snovik upwards. The route takes you on a steep climb towards the Osredkar Farm and the settlement Poljana to Črnivec (902 m). Cross the regional road and climb on the macadam road around Kranjska reber to the mountain plateau Kašna planina. Continue the ride downhill to Kranjski Rak and then uphill to the mountain plateau Velika planina. Cycle towards the valley Tiha dolina and climb past the herdsmen’s settlement to the Zeleni rob Inn. Return along the same route to Kranjski Rak and descend steeply to the right to Krivčevo, where you will join onto the regional road Gornji Grad-Kamnik at the end of the valley. On leaving Godič, cycle on the less busy road on the left bank
alongside the Kamniška Bistrica River and past the monastery in Mekinje.
On the mountain plateau Velika planina, cycling only along the surfaced trails to the Zeleni Rob Inn is allowed. Do not cycle all over and scare animals on the mountain pasture. You can also descend into the valley of the Kamniška Bistrica by gondola.
The mountain plateau Velika planina is one of the most beautiful Slovenian high mountain alps. You can explore a carstic cave there, get to know the shepherd Peter, admire the Kamnik orchid, go for a walk amongst animals on the mountain pasture or take a look at the ancient Preskar Cottage, now turned into a museum.
