Cycling Trails trought the Lower Savinja Valley

There are 19 cycling trails in the Lower Savinja Region.

All the cycling trails are interconnected and use local and side roads. On the maps, they are numbered and graded according to difficulty, from short and flat, to more difficult, steeper trails.
