Today we rode from Italy to Slovenia about 19 miles. We will base the next 2 days out of Kranjska Gora. After another amazing breakfast we packed our bags for the shuttle and headed towards Lake Fusine. Most of the ride was on a bike path with only a little on roads. The ride up to Lake Fusine was optional – it was a little steep in spots but most of us did it. The walk around the lake was interesting. It started out as a normal gravel path but quickly turned into a very uneven mix of stones and roots. The stones we were used to but the roots were different and slippery at times. The next adventure was a ride up to a World cup ski jumping site. They were making jumps while we were there – onto a surface that acted like snow but was able to handle the 70 degree day. Some of the group did the Zip line that was next to the ski jump. In Kranjska Gora we took the last optional ride up to Lake Jasna just outside of town. We had many options for lunch today but we chose to eat at a restaurant in Krasjska Gora after checking into our hotel. We enjoyed walking around town – it felt like we were in Aspen or Vail.
In the evening we gathered in the lobby and walked to a old house that is now a museum and had a presentation of some of the ways the locals used to live. We had a cooking demonstration of some of the local food and then later got to eat a full traditional Slovenian meal. It was very filling!
Tomorrow we bike to Lake Bled
