Cycling routes in the area of Kranj, Medvode and Škofja Loka are among the easier routes, with few elevation climbs. The roads are accompanied by the remarkable views of the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and iconic Mt Storžič on one side and the Škofla Loka Hills on the other. The trails around lakes Zbilje and Trboje are considered to be cycling classics of the region.
