Circular cycling route through Tabor and Limovce

30 km long mountain cycling route leads us through municipalities of Tabor and Vransko. The starting point is located in Tabor. If we want to extend our trip for additional 8 kilometers, we can start cycling at Hotel Grof. From Tabor the road climbs very slightly towards Loke where a beautiful view of the natural monument Krvavica opens up in front of us. We continue ascending on a slightly steeper 3,5 km gravel road which takes us to the beautiful Presedlje pass. We continue cycling along the ridge towards Zaplanina (follow the blue number 18 signs at all times), and descend to the regional road towards Trojane. Before Ločica pri Vranskem we turn back under the highway and start ascending on the asphalt forest road to Zahomce. At the intersection we turn right (blue number 18 sign) and continue cycling on the gravel road along the ridge below Črni vrh. We finish our trip with the descent back to Loke and Tabor.
