"Just completed one of the best Mountain Bike trips of our life in Slovenia and Croatia with Sacred Rides We had an absolutely wonderful, magical time. Our guides Dixi and Janni were so professional, knowledgeable and helpful and friendly and fun. The country is just so beautiful and the food was out of this world. Thank you for an unforgettable trip!"
Elca Grobler, back from our Alps and Adriatic Ride
A few days ago, we were flying down the ski slopes of Peza Mountain, climbing a "short but thick" 6 km uphill, sitting in Cerna drinking beer or just sampling plums off a tree in the farm. We would like to take the opportunity and say big thanks for a wonderful time spent in Slovenia last week. We all had a first time experience riding mountain bikes abroad and how happy we are to make that choice. We learned to ride better, appreciate our luck to be part of the sport of mountain biking, value the great work you do in building the trails, maintaining them, developing the Slovenia biking scene, and educating all of us on how to be better mountain bikers and better people. But most of all we value the opportunity of getting to know Susana and you, Clara and Anej.
We hope you keep up the great work you are doing!
Eran Mamon, on behalf of:
Uri, Nadav, Arnon, Gil, Ron, Yariv and Liran,
Eran (Razi) - your guest Chef.
Just wanted to give you and your family my most sincere gratitude for the kindness and hospitality you've all given me the past few days. It was a wonderful time for me and I'll never forget it.
Tour: Discovering Slovenian Alps
" Myself and 4 friends embarked on our 7 day 'Slovenian Alps' biking trip with "Mountain BikeNomad" with no real expectation levels as we knew no-one that had biked in Slovenia before us. We had booked the 7 day guided tour that started in the 'Crna' Mountain Bike Park and finished in 'Goriška Brda' (a beautiful wine region).
We were met by Anej, son of the legendary Dixi, at Ljubljana airport and we could tell immediately this was going to be a great week with plenty of banter during the 1 hour transfer to the Mountain bike park. We were then met by Dixi the founder of "Mountain Bike Nomad" and biking legend, who has been a guide in the Slovenian Alps for over 15 years. There was nothing that could phase the man, including when I snapped the Bike chain on a cold and wet afternoon. His response to this and most setbacks was "Ian, this is mountain biking!" as he repaired the bike chain within minutes.
Day 1 was very special and was both a novelty ride in the morning and an Biking assessment in the afternoon. It started with an unique and impressive cycle + tour guide in the local Mines here we rode deep into the Mines covering about 6km.
Followed in the afternoon by some excellent technical downhill which some of us gave a wide berth due to our inexperience. Now that the guide(s) had the measure of our technical ability and fitness levels the rest of the week was moulded around our abilities. Dixi had plenty of options up his sleeve which he also allowed us to choose our biking routes and departure times each following day.
The top 10 tour highlights for us 5 lads included:
- The unique 'Mine' biking - where else in the world is this possible?
- Homemade Elderflower and Raspberry juice at the Farm.
- Crossing over and sleeping at the highest Mountain road pass in Slovenia (plus the 8km downhill in the morning).
- Eating at 'Lake Bled' castle over looking the Emerald coloured lake.
- The tranquil viewing of Lake Bohinj.
- Two of us getting struck by lightening in a freak thunderstorm.
- The Slovenian border control guys laughing at us after 'that' monster uphill climb.
- The 'Soca Valley' Panoramic ride - unbelievable scenery.
- The impromptu Soca Valley Reggae festival that Anej invited us to with his buddies - great times.
- The final 5 course meal in the beautiful Goriška Brda Wine region as the sun set for the evening ...the perfect way to end the trip.
We strongly recommend this company to travel with
and they have the flexibility and desire to adhere to
Thank you Dixi and Anej.
First of all I like to thank you and your family for your wonderful hospitality and your professional service during all these days. I told all my friend about your beautiful farm and the great biking and I am sure we will try to come to visit you next year.
I had a great time at your mtb park. Every thing was just perfect. Thanks a lot and I hope to come again soon.
