Bicycling on the Menišija Bicycle Trail promises recreation and relaxation and the simultaneous experience of karst phenomena, caves, sinkholes, the unspoiled Menišija forests, and characteristic karst meadows where the daffodils will take you by surprise in the spring. The bicycle trail begins at a log cabin in Begunje and leads on the forest road across Koželjski graben to Kožljek, to Dobec, through Bezuljak, and back to Begunje. With its twenty-kilometer length and 300-meter variation in altitude, the trail is also suitable for families who are slightly more fit and equipped with good mountain bikes. While on the trail, you might want to explore the Menišija Natural Science Education Trail (LTR III) and its attractions. You can make a stop in Bezuljak where the Austrian army had a practice shooting range before World War I, which helped the flourishing of numerous gostilnas in nearby Begunje. At the end, take a deep breath at the Church of Sv. Lenart and the nearby chapel with its well.
