About Robert Rigo

Za mene je to vrlo jednostavno. Ja doista volim voziti bicikl. Prije sam razvijao biciklističke rute u Hrvatskoj, pokrenuo sam i upravljao internetskom stranicom i koautor sam knjige s biciklističkim rutama. Sada, samo vozim bicikl, sa Željkom vodim online butik i ispijam kave i ...
S ljubavlju vozim čelik, Ritchey Logic i Eddy Merckx Super Corsa.
It is clear and simple for me. I really like to cycle. Some time ago I was developing cycling routes in Croatia, started a web site and co-authored book with cycling routes in Croatia. Now, I am just cycling, with Željka taking care of online boutique and enjoying coffee and ...
Steel in love with Ritchey Logic and Eddy Merckx Super Corsa.

      Simple and easy cycling from Dugo Selo to Sisak along the Sava River. The route is especially suitable for family driving because it is not long, there are no climbs and there is very little traffic, especially in the part after Oborava on the right side of the Sava. The road from Dugo Selo to Rugvica has more traffic because it connects Dugo Selo with the highway, so we need to be careful. So let’s use the sidewalk to drive where there is one.In Rugvica we continue to the right to the embankment along the Sava, which has little traffic, in fact no traffic. In Oborovo we cross the Sava River by ferry. The right road along the right side of the Sava is really pleasant for cycling, because there is very little traffic.The route passes through several macadam roads. The macadams are in excellent condition and the road bike digests them with ease.We can reach Dugo Selo by train from Zagreb. From Sisak we return by train to Zagreb. The train is comfortable and fast. It drives 140 km / h in some parts ;-)

      The bicycle route takes us through the valleys of western Zagorje and the passage past two castles, a traditional ethno village and the birthplace of J. Broz Tito. The area is especially beautiful in spring and autumn, when nature is full of colors and scents. Roads are comfortable to drive without much traffic.We start the ride in Zaprešić, which we can easily reach by train from Zagreb.In Žejinci we turn off the main road and continue through the valley and the place Domahovo. We recently discovered this valley which is quiet and beautiful to drive.From Tuheljske toplice, the route continues on a slightly busier road but still comfortable to drive. From the same road, in V. Horvatska, it offers a beautiful view of the castle of Pallfy-Erdödy (1611). The castle had a beautiful park.Between Velinci and Kladnik we crossed the hill by a road that is extremely steep in a short part, but with a little effort it can be passed. No further downhill.Kumrovec is a place where we rested, drank coffee. Kumrovec is known as the birthplace of Josip Broz Tito. It is also known for its traditionally decorated ethno village where we can see how people lived in the early 20th century.We continue driving along the valley of the river Sutla. Novi Dvori Cesargradski Castle is located in Novi Dvori Klanječki. Unfortunately, the castle is difficult to notice because it is in poor condition and overgrown. The only thing that has been preserved is an outbuilding along the main road.The road through the Sutla valley is comfortable to drive without a lot of traffic.In Harmica, those who are tired can get on the train and continue to Zaprešić. The route continues south of the railway, with less busy roads to Zaprešić.

      Summer is approaching at lightning speed, so we had to take the opportunity and ride before cycling starts to look more like barbecuing than enjoyment. The bike is lightly equipped in the style of bikepacking and the first part of the tour was done by train from Zagreb to Karlovac.The tour below went through beautiful roads through nature without much traffic. Of course, near larger settlements we met "fish" of larger formats, but that's why you grit your teeth and relax on the local roads.I didn’t tour for a long time, so I forgot some things and discovered hot water. For example, it makes no sense to drive more than 100 km or master 1500 m of total ascent (whichever comes first). Otherwise you spend the whole day cycling and you don’t even see much. Except a lot of asphalt.

      This short cycling route is most beautiful for riding in the spring and very likely in the fall (we weren’t there yet then), and certainly outside the tourist season.We came to the island of Cres by ferry from Brestova with the aim of making a circle Rijeka-Cres-Krk-Rijeka. For me, this was the most beautiful part of the ride, which is why I describe it here.After getting off the ferry in Porozina, wait for all vehicles to leave, because below you will find a quiet ride on a narrow asphalt road through the island. The route is full of panoramic views of the surroundings, so stop occasionally and enjoy the view.There is no drinking water at the Merag pier (2019), but there is a fine café where you can drink coffee and eat ice cream.If you want, you can continue the route through Cres to Mali Lošinj, which I plan on the next occasion.

      The route passes mainly through a series of low-traffic roads through the valleys of the rivers Sutla, Krka and Sava. In the part where it passes through the Savinjska region of Slovenia, the route is a bit hilly, but every short climb is rewarded with a view of the surroundings.I recommend drinking the obligatory coffee in Kumrovec, in the tavern Kod Starog. If you have extra time and are in no hurry, be sure to read a book from the rich library located in the pub 😉 It is interesting to come across a library in the pub.Kumorvec is a place with a rich history of both medieval and modern history of the 20th century. Kumorovec is known as the birthplace of Josip Broz Tito, and nearby there is a monument to the anthem Lijepa naša domovino near Zelenjak and the Erdody manor near Razvor.In the last part of the route, it passes through a wooden bridge near Cerklje ob Krki. Rarely do we encounter wooden bridges today.
