Steel City Media is proud to present 'Mountains to Sea', a two wheel'd adventure across Slovenia with Juliana Bicycles
ambassadors Rachel Walker and Julia Hobson.
With this film we look to land Slovenia firmly on riders bucket lists, by trying to give this 'hidden gem' of Europe the justice it deserves on screen, with its pristine singletrack, endless layers of mountains and great pizza?!
Growing slowly in popularity over the years, but far from busy compared to the normal 'go to' alpine destinations, Jonny and his crew have carved out a unique path from 'Alps to Sea', taking in a huge amount of ever-changing terrain and trails across 6 days.
High Alpine descents into forests with loam on tap, what more could you want.
We felt naive once we were there witnessing it all first hand, but Slovenia is a place that is largely covered in mountains and bordered by four different countries, which gives you a huge mix of cultures and terrain each day as you work your way towards the coast for that final reward of gelato...
You'll need to watch the film for the full story, but It's like they've almost picked their favourite parts of the rest of Europe and placed them all in one tidy, mountainous package.
One thing you won't find included though is trail traffic, as you can be tricked into thinking each descent could be a first, as you can go hours without bumping into another human.
After a full week of early starts, big miles and huge descents the team were on the home straight, but as Rachel said, on the last day we ended up in a bit of a 'pickle' .... resulting in a last minute test of the Slovenian health care system, which was fortunately also great.
