While exploring the beautiful countryside in Lake Bled region by classic non-powered bike makes for a perfect day-trip for anyone eager to both see the area and get a good workout, choosing an e-bike is ideal for you if you do not want to strain yourself but still wish to enjoy the superb experience in the back country of Bled.
Starting from the banks of Lake Bled, the initial stage of our tour will take us halfway around the scenic lake before heading for the pristine little villages in its hinterland. From the village of Selo, it is now a matter of minutes before we reach the quiet forest roads and trails on the banks of Slovenia's major river, the Sava. In the tranquil forests at the foot of the Jelovica Plateau, we will head for the spring of Lipnica River, its waters curiously emerging from the karst slopes of the plateau.
After a short break, our next destination is an old iron-forging village of Kamna Gorica where we will admire the traditional wrought iron creations of skilled villagers, explore the branched network of water canals in our miniature Venice, and have a brief look into the typical arrangement of Slovene villages. Following a neatly arranged nature trail and crossing an impressive hang bridge over the Sava, we will soon reach the scenic medieval town of Radovljica. A well deserved lunch or coffee break directly on the main square, soaking in the atmosphere of this town with the only preserved town moat in Slovenia is an option, or we can keep the momentum by heading for Lake Sobec straight away.
Lake Sobec is only a few kilometers away and can be reached along a combination of surfaced and gravel roads as well as some trail sections. We can dip into the refreshing waters of the lake or simply enjoy the green surroundings from the shore.
Bled is not to far now, but we will want to extend our riding day with a visit to Vintgar Gorge, a definite must-see on the outskirts of Bled. Riding in the green countryside, and passing by Bled golf course and through some authentic villages, we will reach it within an hour ride. A 3 kilometre hike to admire this fabulous narrow gorge is well worth the energy invested. After the visit, only some 30 minutes separate us from shaking hands and making an end to a perfect day.
