Was first introduced to Croatia last year in Zagreb and found it beautiful; visited Porec in the fall and found it beautiful. I want to see Plitvice (sp) lakes this summer and know it will be beautiful.

Thank you for the reminder of your beautiful country.

This weekend destination was Lika area http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lika, more precisely Velebit Mountain http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velebit. Our goal was to ride Veliki Alan road on northern part of the mountain.
We hit the road early and after 100 km on the main road it was time to turn to smaller secondary roads. It is surprising that some of the forest roads are sealed, but they were fun.











Krasno is one of the biggest villages on Velebit.





Towards Veliki Alan.







There are few roads to the peak, first we tried to do detour trough the woods, but there were too much snow on the ground.









Natural fridge... :)



After few km, we reached „main“ road, to our big suprise it was plowed. :)











After the top we proceeded for few km just to snap few pictures of Adriatic before turning back. Proceeding to the coast would take us to far from home and we still had some gravel roads on Velebit to ride.





Monument is dedicated to the people from Northen Adriatic islands that used these trails to join the partisans during WWII.





Last gravel section was most interesting, there was still snow on the ground.









Back on the asphalt, there was around two more hours of riding before reaching Karlovac.

Thank you all!

OK, last one from this Karlovac „series“ for some time. There are some other rides planned for the end of the May.
There were few days of rain before so it was little bit muddier. Good thing is that I have set of Karoo (T) in my garage. :) We rode that road few weeks before but this time it was quite slippery.











There is new dam and hydroelectric power plant on Dobra River. This canyon will start disappearing from the beginning of June. There are few new road sections and bridges build because old ones will be under water soon. It will be interesting to come back in the autumn for some „then and now“ pictures.













We tried another gravel road, but that one was closed so we had to turn back.





Last section was between Jasenak and Begovo Razdolje which at 1,060 m (3,478 ft), it is the settlement with the highest elevation in Croatia. Unfortunately road was blocked by snow so we had to turn back few km before the village and sealed road starting there.

Few of us passed by your backyard in Sunday. Gorski Kotar-Karlovac-Sisak. Really nice ride, roads, scenery. I was thinking about calling you, but had no time for stop. Next time.

Thanks for your effort to write this RR-s.

Pozdrav!
