Route

Tour profile/ level 2:

Quiet side roads and cycle paths. In Slovenia, Croatia and Hungary, the cycle path network is barely developed - here mostly side roads, briefly also on less busy main roads. Climbs are to be expected on all routes, which are always rewarded with great views and fast descents.
