Most of You maybe don’t know, but Ljubljana (Slovenia) is considered as one of the most suitable cycling cities in the world.

One of the important issue which affects riding abike is that Ljubljana was European Green Capital 2016. And that role will increase level of cycling and infrastructure on next level.

Infrastructure will be build from the start, bike share program works great, even special traffic lights are made for cyclists, and politics wants to put Ljubljana on the map of best bike cities in the World.

In Ljubljana, 12% of inhabitants ride bike regularly, it has 45 miles separated bike lanes, 83 miles of bike lanes, and that makes great potential.
