The Upper Carniola Cycling Network is a carefully designed interweaving of cycling connections in the Gorenjska area. The network comprises 640 kilometers of national and local cycling connections in Gorenjska and some neighboring municipalities. When determining the network, international criteria of traffic safety, the attractiveness of the landscape, and the availability of catering and service services were taken into account. The routes were approved by all 24 included municipalities of Gorenjska and the Slovenian Infrastructure Agency (DRSI).
The main goal of the project is to set up a single traffic signaling system for cyclists on the entire network. Still, we are also dedicated to the accurate digital display of the existing cycling infrastructure and the recording of black spots or high-risk road sections along the network—the latter to pay special attention to these locations when planning investments. The priority is to eliminate the high-risk road sections and ensure a safe route for cyclists. The Gorenjska region is doing pioneering work in this field, as it is the first in the country to set up the network in such a systematic way.
