The tour begins at the Slovenian Tourist Information Centre, where you will get a bicycle and a helmet. From there, your guide will lead you across Plečnik's Market and through Ljubljana Old Town, give you some brief information about all the city's major sights along the way, and then steer you to the pleasant green Ljubljanica embankments in the city's Prule area, a perfect place to take a break.
After a short rest, you will jump on your bicycle again and cross a bridge spanning the Gruber Channel to reach a green area including the Ljubljana Botanic Garden, one of Europe's oldest institutions of its kind and one of Ljubljana's most magnificent green gems. From

there, you will pedal through the Krakovo area, a pearl in the crown of urban gardening in Ljubljana since the Middle Ages, and continue towards Tivoli Park. A ride along Plečnik's Promenade, which connects Tivoli Park to the city centre, past the famous Nebotičnik building and continue towards one of Ljubljana's most unique attractions, the Metelkova mesto alternative culture centre.
