We start our day at Hotel Grof and cycle along scenic, hilly local roads past Lake Žovnek towards Braslovče. When we arrive to Braslovče we continue towards Parižlje and accross Savinja River to Polzela. We turn left and continue cycling upstream along Savinja River towards Šmartno ob Paki. As we arrive to Skorno we continue right along Paka River to Florjan where we turn left towards Bele vode and Lepa Njiva. We start our first longer descent towards Mozirje and Mozirski gaj Gardeners’ Park. In Mozirje we follow the signs towards Golte, but we turn left towards Rečica ob Savinji just before the Golte cable car. As we arrive to Spodnja Rečica we cross Savinja River once again and continue cycling towards Trnovo and Šmartno ob Dreto followed by the longest climb of the day towards Lipa pass. Once we reach the pass we start descending towards Vransko and Hotel Grof.
