    Kranska Gora - an Alpine town

    September 11, 2016 in Slovenia ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    I thought that mountain road behind Zargreb had some twists and turns. The roads and scenery to this Alpine resort town are just fantastic. Lots of people visiting tjough nothing like during the ski season. The scenery just kept getting better each time I went around a corner, and there were lots and lots of corners. The roads, leading up to the alpine pass (Vrsiska road) were prefect for motorbike riding mostly good fast speed corners on almost perfect tarmac. But the alpine pass was something else steep and sharp corner after sharp corner. As you get closer to the top the hairpins are all cobbled rather than bitumen, I'm guessing it needs less maintenance but it's quite rough and makes it interesting on a motorbike and there were motorbikes everywhere. The hairpins are numbered 1 to 50 and it climbs almost 1000 metres in a very short space.

    I did see one funny/strange sight. A hiker walk along the road had 6 or 7 sheep following him, when ever he stopped did they, when he went off again, so did they. He just looked at me, shrugged his shoulders and said they had been following all afternoon and he couldn't get rid of them. I guess if he got lost he could always have lamb for dinner.

    I stayed at a resort in town (much cheaper in summer) the room and food were great and the views of the surrounding mountains were beautiful.

    Down the other side of the range the next day, nowhere near as steep..but fantastic riding, and I'll be in Austria.

    Baumgartnerhohe to Kranjska Gora

    June 23, 2018 in Slovenia ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    24 km/ 1293m ascent/ 1400m descent/ rating: Difficult
    A very spectacular day to finish. We had perfect weather of clear blue skies and great visibility. It was the most challenging day in terms of technical skills required for the climb and the descent. We watched a helicopter perform a mountain rescue from the trail we had passed an hour earlier and we were very aware that even a relatively minor injury would require medi-vac. We were also surprised to see Bear Warning signs - a little more hard core than the Cow Warning signs we were accustomed to! We had the most perfect lunch stop at the top of the mountain looking onto the Julian Alps in Slovenia which will be our playground next year when we return to finish the second half of the trail. As soon as we arrived in Kranjska Gora we stopped at a cafe to celebrate our achievement with G&T, Beer and the luscious Bled Cake (like a vanilla slice on steroids) and shortly after Isabel and Bruce arrived - a lovely way to finish the day.Read more
