STAGE 4 ROUTE REVIEW - Tour of Slovenia | Bohinj - Bled - Pokljuka
The stage starts along the idyllic Lake Bohinj; and the first part of the route is flat. The course is diverse and scenic and features all the contrasts you may find in Slovenia. Starting with the foggy forests, it gets through the sunny plains with Julian Alps in view amidst cute, small towns. The path leads the peloton past the iconic and beautiful Lake Bled, followed by a demanding climb to Pokljuka plateau, up to the mountain with forests laying in snow. The winding route goes up via the Triglav National Park in the last 10 kilometers. The parcour has a total distance of 41 km, with a 2% average grade and a 965 m of elevation (the stage route is here).

About the Tour of Slovenia
The Tour of Slovenia is the largest cycling event in Slovenia, which every year increasingly attracts more and more people, who follow and watch the race either at the race track or through different media channels. The very first Tour of Slovenia was organized in May 1993, just one year after the Slovenian Cycling Federation became a member of the international cycling association, the UCI. The Slovenian tour has continuously grown and developed. Today, after successfully finishing it's 25th edition, it attracts the world’s best cyclists and cycling teams that compete and demonstrate their skills on picturesque Slovenian roads, where images of landscapes change from Alpine to Pannonian and to Mediterranean. With world-class partners and a new slogan, “Fight for green”, the Tour of Slovenia is gaining new momentum and is, aside from being a top cycling event, also becoming one of the main events for the international promotion of Slovenia as a five-star tourist destination.
