We ride through Puštal past the Puštal castle and to the Hrastnica valley. We follow the asphalt road and signposts to St. Ožbolt. After 6,7 kilometres we turn right. Cycling a pleasant slope, we get to a bit steeper part leading to the Hribovec farm. After almost 10 kilometres we reach St. Ožbolt church. In nice weather you have a magnificent view from here. You can find the STAMP (KT 1) in the box attatched to the house of Hunters' Hut, situated behind the church below the path. The first Sunday after August 5 is the most vivid on Ožbolt. It is the annual village fair of St. Ožbolt.
The descend to the valley goes further on along the same path. However, at the first branch we turn right to the Bodovlje gorge. In Bodovlje at the crossing before the bridge we turn right again. First we cycle through the village and than we follow the cart track on the right bank of the Sora river. We can finish our ride in Puštal and see the nace house or the near Devil's wooden footbridge.
