An extremely demanding, long and climbing tour that takes you into Slovenia. With beautiful mountain passes, rivers and valleys, this is a severe but very rewarding day on the bike.
Leaving Klopeiner See for Eberndorf you pass by the beautiful Gösselsdorfer See on the cycle track. Staying on the cycle track as far as Miklauzhof you then head south into the valley and follow the river to Bad Eisenkappel. Here you continue on the Seebergsattel pass until you reach the summit border crossing with Slovenia.
The amazing descent takes you deep into the Slovenian countryside but care must be taken as the mountain roads sometimes are not in very good condition after a hard winter.
After leaving the valley at Hrib, head west through the small villages of Bašelj, Goriče and Pristava before you reach the start of the Loiblpaß climb at Tržič. Near the summit you will pass through the tunnels so please remember your lights and Passport for the border crossing back into Austria.
After a very long descent you are in the village of Ferlach where you head East once more on undulating roads through Sankt Margareten, Gallizien, Stein and returning to Klopeinersee.
The time given for this ride is based on an average speed of 20 kph with no stops. Please allow more or less time depending on your own personal ability and ride requirements.
