HISTORY

Only a few years ago, it was uncommon to see female cyclists in Slovenia. Cycling was more of a men’s sport, there were also less women among recreational cycling enthusiasts. But with the popularisation of the sport in the last couple of years, came an incredible increase in females dabbling cycling.

It was indeed no different than the revolutions that came before - many agreed that the idea was a height of folly, and did not expect anything to become of it.
