In accordance with trends, and with the aim of promoting cycling and sport, along with the growing need of tourists and visitors from all over the world to have an active vacation in Samobor, a charming city near Zagreb, in 2016, the Samobor Tourist Board launched a project to create and mark cycling routes. The geographical position of the city is perfect for touring and getting to know its attractions by bike, which you will see for yourself soon after arriving in town. The fact that Samobor has become a true cycling mecca is proven by the fact that this year's start of the 6th leg of the famous Tour of Croatia bike race started in Samobor, along with the attractive international mountain biking race (June 18), which will be organized for the 24th time by BBK Šišmiš, with both the start and finish line on the main city square, Trg kralja Tomislava.

In collaboration with Samobor bike clubs BBK Šišmiš, and BBK Krpelj, seven bike routes have been designed, from easy on-road routes to demanding mountain routes, which lead you on a tour to get to know attractive, interesting sites in the city of Samobor: the Ivica Sudnik mountain lodge on Veliki Dol, and Željezničar on Oštrc, Grgos' cave, the old town of Okić, the Žumberak-Samoborsko gorje nature park, all the way to the ferry in Medsave. Cyclists will be welcomed with a printed bicycle map with height profiles and track descriptions in Croatian and English, and will be able to download .gpx files of each route via QR code.
