Hi, I hiked in Slovenija. There are friendly people and a lot of mountains. You should need a very good bike and much training. Let's have a nice holiday

Slovenia is a wonderful country for cycling tours: very friendly people, fine food, good accomodations, marvellous landscape from the sea to the mountains of the alps to the vineyards in the east, nice villages and cities.
Nevertheless, I recommend you to avoid main roads: car- and especially truck-drivers are rather ruthless. Meanwhile, you will find also cycling-routes (I know it from the eastern / southeastern part of the country), but they are of different quality. Sometimes it could be better to find your own path.
If you have any special question, don't hesitate to ask me!

Bonne route! :-)

The flatest road is Ljubljana Kranj Jesenice KranskaGora Traviso Villach. But its following a big road.
