About the tour
Have you ever experienced to mountain bike at night? We have done it and we were amazed how much different the biking gets. While seeing things and objects get limited, other senses become much more sensitive and that is why biking at night is a game-changer.
The bike tour is going to take place at Rašica - a very popular mountain biking hill with loads of different biking trails that lies only a few minutes away from Ljubljana city centre. An hour or so before the sunset we will start to mountain bike on easy or more challenging bike trails towards the top of the hill with the sun's rays warming us from the left side. We will try to reach the top before the sun goes down and enjoy the sunset on the lookout tower. There you will experience how the sun's rays are slowly leaving Ljubljana valley, but still shining on the Julian Alps and Kamnik - Savinja Alps. After we will have some time for evening snack/drink at the mountain hut on the top and start our descent into the darkness of the night - no worries, everybody will be equipped with a biking torch. Slow, long and very easy descent is going to lead us through the forest and fields, finishing at the starting point of the bike tour.
With our night tour finished, we will take you back to the place you are staying, so you can take a well-desreved shower after a bit colder night bike ride.
