My brother was working for a holiday company called Ride Slovenia
last year, which was based in Luce. Tucked away, high in the mountains above the capital city of Ljubljana, Luce is absolutely beautiful and surrounded by picturesque vistas, all of which are loaded with awesome trails - it's not hard to understand why I really wanted to go.
As luck would have it, a week without any guests booked in, miraculously appeared and after a quick call from my brother, an opportunity presented itself and plans were hastily made. We (17 in total) finally arrived after hours of travelling and what did we do first? The first thing any mountain biker would do and unpacked our bikes and headed straight to the nearest mountain - even after only getting 2-hours of sleep within a 30 hour time frame, it still felt good to get out on a bike and ride the local trails... It's safe to say, we weren't disappointed!
We hit a variety of trails over the week ranging from lift accessed trails to others that were short enough to do multiple laps on. Being so varied and different, it never felt like you were on the same trail more than once, even though your were at times linking back on to trails you'd previously ridden. From loose and loamy natural singeltrack and some of the hardest trail I've ever ridden - to bike park trails where in one run it felt like you were riding 4 or 5 different trails in one. We even jumped the border and hit a random paved track in Austria, which was full of jumps and berms, and was 11km long!
