Explore Medvednica on two wheels
Each day we can encounter more and more cyclists on the forested slopes of Medvednica. For this reason we marked a network of nine circuit routes. Our wish is to allow all visitors to enjoy Medvednica, valuing and preserving the mountain and each other. That is why we kindly ask the cyclists to use only the marked bike routes, especially when descending, and to be particularly cautious while doing so, because some pedestrian-mountaineers also use these trails, and the potential collisions at high speeds can be dangerous for everyone.
The routes are marked from 1 to 9 and laid out to have contact points to allow crossing from one trail to another, combining a tour that suits you the most. All routes are circular and described and marked in one direction, so we don’t recommend driving in the opposite direction, because you won’t be able to see the signs and will have difficulties in orientation.
In the field bike routes are marked with white cyclist and route number on trees.
Routes often overlap with hiking trails so exclamation mark will worn you that extra caution is necessary.
!!! Route 2 – Breathless Route is not recommendable to use due to cable car construction work.
The bicycle trail that connects the top of Medvednica “Sljeme” and the City of Zagreb and was created in cooperation with the City of Zagreb, the Tourist Board of the City of Zagreb, Medvednica Nature Park, Croatian Forests, Viva Sport d.o.o., Husquarna and cycling club “Opušteno”.
