Ljubljana is among the most bicycle-friendly cities in the world. The city centre is closed to motor vehicles and inhabitants and visitors can enjoy many areas that are reserved for pedestrians and cyclists. The area closed to traffic covers 12 hectares and is the largest car-free zone in the European Union.

Visitors can take a tour of the city centre aboard the Urban electric tourist train, have a free ride with the electric Kavalir vehicle or take a (self)guided cycling tour. Ljubljana is the cyclists’ idea of a city. Cycling as a mode of transport is increasingly popular and the city is constantly expanding its network of cycling paths as part of its efforts for sustainable development.

Bicikelj, the city's bike sharing system, provides bikes for hire from self-service terminals located across the wider Ljubljana city centre. And it’s practically free. The Ljubljana Bike project provides easy and affordable bike rental from the Slovenian Tourist Information Centre.

Ljubljana Tourism also offers several guided cycling city tours, such as Exploring Ljubljana by BicycleA Bicycle Tour through Plečnik’s Ljubljana and the Moustache Tour, a unique insight into the city's cultural heritage.

The city is best experienced by cyclists taking themed cycling paths, identified by easily noticeable blue markings. Check out some of the many cycling routes Ljubljana has to offer.
