We cycle from Železniki along the Selška valley to Podrošt, where we start the steeper part of the ascent. Before Spodnja Sorica it straightens a little bit. The village is one of the most beautiful ones in Slovenia and it inspires artistic souls even today. You can join a music workshop or a painting workshop here or you can see Ivan Grohar's birthplace. There is a rich tourist offer at Spodnja Sorica and you will find the STAMP and the entry book in the Macesen restaurant (right beside the road at the end of the village. We continue our track towards Soriška planina, which is also a very popular excursion point among cyclists, but regretfully our track branches off to the right before we reach it. (You can also cycle up to here along the road past Petrovo Brdo - the road is better, the ascent is not so steep and the distance is a few kilometres longer, you only have to descend to the Macesen restaurant for the STAMP.
We cycle on past steep hills covered with meadows. Fewer and fewer people from the villages below Ratitovec cultivate these hills. We can descend to the valley at Torka as the track continues along the wide macadam road. However, it becomes worse on the highest point called Povden. If you do not have a mountain bike or you are used to narrow stony paths - you'd better get off your bicycle! The track is the worst in the upper part where you even have to carry your bike over certain parts. When you come to Prtovč, do not forget the STAMP which is on the open gate farm Pr' Petričk. You only have to descend to Železniki now.
