CLIMB SUMMARY

Thank you to PJAMM’s Erwan Treguier (FR) for his contributions to this page.

Another set of beautiful road bike climbs in the Julian Alps in sight of Mt. Triglav (at 2,864 meters, the highest point in Slovenia).  The mountains in this area are Limestone and provide the backdrop for some of the most scenic climbs by bike in the world.  These bike climbs can also be done in a loop that includes the incomparable Vzpon Mangart climb.

Prelaz is “pass” in Slovenian.  Thus, Prelaz Vrsic is Vrsic Pass.

PRELAZ VRSIC FROM THE NORTH (KRANJSKA GORA)

Cycling Prelaz Vrsic from the north (Kranjska Gora)

Kranjska Gora (population 1,452, 2012) is a small town in northwestern Slovenia which dates back to the 11th century and is close to Slovenia’s borders with Austria and Italy.  

There are many amazing hairpins on this route.

This magnificent cobbled road was built by Russian prisoners (captured by the Austro-Hungarian Empire) during WWI in 1916-1917 and a beautiful wooden orthodox chapel was built as a memorial to those who died during the road’s construction.

Memorial.

PRELAZ VRSIC FROM THE SOUTH (TRENTA)

This wonderful bike climb begins in the small northwestern town of Trenta (population 114, 2002).

This bridge is just below the start of the climb in Trenta.
