THROUGH THE SURROUNDINGS OF LOBOR AND WESTERN IVANŠČICA

Lobor – Mihovljan - Mače - Lobor

THROUGH THE SURROUNDINGS OF LOBOR AND WESTERN IVANŠČICA

The cycling route begins in the center of Lobor 1. Continue towards north in direction of Stari Golubovec. The route goes over the asphalted road with less traffic, along the stream Reka. You will pass by the football field and arrive to the Y intersection (3,8 km from start), where a water supply facility is situated. At the intersection, you must keep left. To the right, a path to Stari grad (Old city) Lobor branches off. In the village of Stari Golubovec the ascent ends and descent, where you can rest, begins; be sure to take a break, because another steeper ascent begins. The road that follows is still very nice to ride and it is almost without traffic.

At the Y intersection 2 (7,6 km from start), you must carefully turn right onto the main road and continue down the slight ascent to the village of Gora Veternička. At the intersection 3(9,2 km from start), turn left. The ride continues over a very steep ascent, where some of you will need to push the bike. Luckily, the hardest part is not very long, and the road is asphalted. At the end of the ascent, a beautiful view of the surroundings opens up and – at the next intersection 4 (11 km from start) – you will pass by the Chapel of Ranjeni Isus (Chapel of the Wounded Jesus) and continue to the left. The ride continues over the steeper descent and you will pass by the Cathedral Chapter of Čazma and Varaždin. Soon you will descent into the valley and at the T intersection 5 (13,8 km from start), turn carefully left onto the main road and continue towards Mihovljani. In Mihovljani, you can relax and refresh.

As you continue, the route takes you through a small passage and decrepit old buildings of the bathing resort in the village of Sutinske Toplice. A bit further, on the left side, there is a pool complex, where you can take a swim during summer. At the Y intersection 6 (20,2 km from start), continue straight forward towards the village of Mače. The valley slowly opens up and the view becomes wider. At the T intersection 7 (22,3 km from start), turn carefully right towards Zlatar and Zlatar Bistrica, and soon you will reach Mače. If you haven’t rested yet, you can relax and refresh in Mače 8.

The route continues to the Y intersection 9 (23,5 km from start) with crucifix, where you must turn left. The route turns slightly towards north and at the intersection 10 you will pass by the gas station. Continue towards the village of Lobor. At 27,6 km from start, on your right side, you will pass by the castle Loborgrad. After 31 km, the cycling route ends in Lobor.
