Start off in Kranjska Gora and follow the hiking/cycling track on the former disused railway line which used to connect Trbiž and Jesenice. You get to the road leading towards Planica and Tamar. Most of the visitors would turn left towards the giant ski jumps, but you turn right, cross the main road and cycle to Rateče. This is one of Slovenia’s coldest villages – a special location causes very low winter temperatures here. Fortunately, this is not the case during your cycling tour.
Follow the main road through the village towards the border crossing. Passing a restaurant “Šurc” at the end of the village, turn right to a forest road which starts winding between the meadows and a nice panoramic view keeps opening up to you. The road leads through the forest and for some time, you cannot enjoy the view until you make it to the very top. A gentle slope, not too difficult, takes you to the top where you are rewarded for all your efforts. Moreover, the road itself is nice and quite smooth so do not worry about it. There is only one junction on your way where you have to take the uphill road. Otherwise, simply follow the signposts. It is important for you to enjoy the cycling and the wonderful panoramic views over all the three countries seen from the top. Looking to the right beneath, you can see a mountain hut on the Three-Border Area where you can enjoy your meal. A tasty “pasulj” (bean-soup) with boletus is a very good choice. Along the ski tow, a bit steeper cart track takes you to the hut. Be careful when riding downhill to the hut. Although the altitude difference is only good 50 meters, the track is rather steep.
After your meal, you can take the same way back. However, at the above mentioned crossroads, you can turn left and descend on a gentle slope to the main road leading from the Korensko sedlo border crossing. Return to Kranjska Gora by following the main road.
