To warm up we climb a less busy road over the Lipa pass and then descend towards Zadreška Valley. Following Dreta River we continue cycling towards Lačja vas where we turn left and continue through a forest path which leads us to the Savinja Valley. We cross a wooden bridge towards Rečica ob Savinji. After a short climb we descend towards Radegunda to the starting point of a 13-kilometer royal climb with 975 meters of elevation gain. If we still have some energy left in the tank we can challenge ourselves with one of the most beautiful climbs in Slovenia with the view over Savinja Valley. At the beginning of the ascent, on the steepest part, it is suggested to save some energy for the final climb to the Alpine Garden Golte followed after more pleasant middle section. Our descent follows the same road as the climb. We pass Mozirje, Letuš and Braslovče on the way back to the starting point.
