Group rides & Workshops

Cycling club Rajd organizes free of charge group rides around Ljubljana. They take place from May till October, depending on the weather, and are split in several categories:

  • MTB advanced – We’ll choose technically more challenging terrain, but still ride at normal pace and have fun, this is not a race. We’ll discover great trail and stay out on the fresh air for about two hours.
  • MTB beginner – Terrain will be less demanding, we’ll ride mostly on gravel roads, forest roads, wide forest paths and easy singletrails. Climbs will be easy or moderate. This rides will take about 2 hours and are perfect for beginners and recreational cyclists.
  • MTB with workshop – We’ll add workshops on some of the group rides, they will be all about maintenance and servicing of your bike/gear or about riding skills and safety in the nature. These rides are about 3 hours long.
  • Road – We’ll jump on our road bikes now and then and go for about 2 hours long ride. Stress is on socializing with other riders and discovering of the landscape around Ljubljana, so we’ll ride with moderate pace and according to traffic rules (we ride on open public roads).
  • Skills class – Bike Park Ljubljana is perfect location for improving your skills, and this is why we’ll organize an afternoon just for that – free of charge. On our website you’ll get more information about Bike Park Ljubljana (link) and all of our group rides, workshops and events (link).
