Welcome to the cutting-edge of uphill cycling
and world's most famous ascents of each of the continents
Slovenia's highest pass road is situated south of Kranjska Gora and leads to a maximum altitude of 1.611m at Vršič pass. The road provides for several cobblestoned switchbacks and make the ride a demanding climb. You can even get higher in Slovenia by road bike at asphalted dead-end road to Mangart Saddle (2,055m).Departure: Kranjska Gora 805m
The pleasant climb has some 800m of altitude gain on 12 kilometers distance.
Today's start in Kranjska Gora
The Jasna Lake alongside the road
Some steep parts await the cyclist.
Curves have moderate grade but are cobblestoned. As the stones are quite small you can easily ride them on a regular road bike.
