Moving around by bike can be one of the best ways of acquainting oneself with a new place. Bled is very convenient for cycling - be it for, less demanding older tourists, young families or determined cycling enthusiasts. There are no special lanes for cycling in Bled or its vicinity, however since traffic is light, most roads can be used. Local roads between villages around Bled are suitable for short cycling trips and a dense network of forest roads on jelovica, Pokljuka and Mežakla can satisfy even the most demanding mountain cyclist. For less damanding cycling, we suggest a trip through the valley of Radovna or you may drive to Pokljuka where the plateau offers pleasant cycling in the cool shadow of the pine forests. Please note that cycling off - road or off - track is not allowed anywhere in Slovenia.
You can rent bicycles at several agencies in Bled and you can also hire a guide. Some possible bicycle routes are indicated in Bled - A Tourist Map (1:30000) - look for the symbol of a bicycle in silhouette.
Prepare yourself for a comfortable bike ride through the beautiful countryside or for the more demanding mountain biking. Don't give up before you reach your goal and then take the adrenaline descent back to the valley.
