How about the food and meals?

Breakfast and dinner are part of the half-board lodging option at each hotel. Each day includes a lunch stop at a specially selected local restaurant, serving local home made food, friendly atmosphere and range of foods characteristic for the area. Other lunch option is buying food in the grocery store. We kindly ask our guests to report any special nutritional requirements in advance (vegetarians, gluten free …) so we can notify the hotels and restaurants accordingly.

What kind of bike do I need?

The best bike for our trips is a good all mountain or enduro bike with at least 120 mm of travel. The bike should not weigh more than 14 kilos as there is quite a bit of uphill riding. Hardtails are always an option, provided your knees and back can take the punishment.

Can I Rent a bike?

Sure! We have a number of DeVinci, Mondraker , Trek, Pivot, Scott and KTM mountain bikes available for rent. For a full list of bikes, sizes and pricing contact us at info@bikegalaxy.siBikes can be reserved upon booking to eliminate any chance of not having a bike ready and waiting for you when you arrive.

What spare parts for my bike should I bring?

Most bicycle spares and components are available for purchase in bike shops around Slovenia. But, to set your mind at ease, we recommend you bring the following set of spares with you:

  • rear derailleur hanger
  • one set of brake pads
  • chain (if your bike chain is older than 6 months)
  • 2 inner tubes (with the appropriate valve)
  • 2 spokes (appropriate lengths for your wheelset)
  • Shock pump

You can also do away with worrying about spares altogether and rent a bike for the week.

What clothing do you recommend?

With the exception of May and October, weather in Slovenia is rather stable and not too cold. Expected temperatures in May and October are between 10 and 25 C and temperatures between June and September are between 15 and 30 C. Packing rain gear is always good as we cannot guarantee the dry weather. Some long sleeves can certainly come in handy.

What should I pack?

Clothing and accessories:

  • at least two cycling jerseys with short sleeves and one with long sleeves
  • padded bike shorts
  • bike helmet
  • knee pads (elbow pads optional)
  • sunglasses
  • bike gloves
  • rainproof jacket and pants
  • warm “civilian” clothing (fleeces, pants …)

  • sunscreen and insect repellent

Your riding backpack should carry at least:

  • 2 liters of fluid/day (hydration bladder or plastic bottles)
