Wa are laughing to this... next year.. 2010...
Seems like posts from Russia are traveling long time :)

Well as this was posted (Objavljeno: 27 okt 2010 22:58) we suppose that you meant 2011.

There are few things that you have to know before visiting Slovenia (considering MTB AM cycling).
Yes we have beautiful nature which is combination of mountains, hills, plains and coastal region. Therefore we have great conditions for MTB. In may you can expect some greater amounts of snow in higher regions (Alps...) so therefore Alpine MTB cycling depends mostly on your expirience, technique and stamina. You can easily use our southern region for MTB cycling but do not expect altitudes above 1500m.
VERY IMPORTANT: Use of bicycle in natural enviroment is forbiden in Slovenia (especialy in protected national park areas) - MTB is still in some gray areas of the law and we are trying to make things different. Therefore you cannot find many GPS tracks of interesting routes. The only law allowed option is MTB parks (http://www.bikepark.si/ in Kranjska Gora, http://www.unitur.eu/ on mountain Rogla, http://www.pohorje.org/en/mariborsko-pohorje-summer/ in Maribor and plenty of smaller bike parks like http://www.ski-javornik.si/index.php?op ... 79&lang=sl near little town Godovič but still less than hour away from our capital town Ljubljana) which are also ski resorts so some or most of them do not operate in early May.
Well it looks like your only option is to use our tourist organisation which will give you pleanty of tarmac and macadam routes (uselles) or to try finding someone as a MTB guide in Slovenia.

Don't be discouraged by my writting because I'm preatty sure that you would enjoy MTB week (or longer) in our little but beautiful country. It will only take you little more planning than for France or Austrian alps.

Bye

Lol! It's 2011! I made a mistake.

Guiding is good! But it's expensive. We cant take guide for all days.

Bike parks are good too! But we need ourself clumbing :) Not full holidays, but mostly. Clumbing, hiking, ectr... and downhill on the trails with lot's of swichbacks.

Something like this - http://zagremel.livejournal.com/55733.html

Thanks, i will check you sites.

Maybe we can join to ride with you? Or it's forbiden? http://video.mpora.ru/watch/SN8eXZMKO/ - this is PERFECT!

I'm sorry but my expirience and technique would not allow me to take anyone on a bicycle to the mountains :) (I suck) Usually someone takes me.
It is forbiden.. but that doesn't mean that we do not do it :)

You rather check this page and you can easily decide by the photos who could take you around... If they are willing to do it...

Another sugestion by whatever (one post above) is ... Go to the Garda lake in Italy as it is MTB heaven.. and in may there's a lot going on there.

This is not Slovenia, nevertheless it is also forbidden and btw it is just not so very perfect as it is shown on the movie...
