February 27, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
Simply Cycling Slovenia (SCS) cycling holidays and cycle tours are based near Ljutomer in the Pomurje region of north-east Slovenia Simply Cycling Slovenia is the creation of Yorkshire couple Paul Wadkin and his partner Heidi who, five years ago, settled in Slovenia.

Paul comments; 'We are thrilled that for 2012 we are now offering a new and wider choice of cycling holidays, cycling tours, competition and charity fun rides in the beautiful unspoilt landscape of the Pomurje region of north east Slovenia and southern Austria'.

'Slovenia is a very environmentally aware country. A network of cycle routes and byways has long made Pomurje a favourite but unspoilt destination for cyclists, walkers and nature lovers. Our holidays take care of everything, leaving you free to relax and enjoy your day cycling at your own pace in the fresh air and sunshine. Check out the details and special offers at

'Our cycle touring and excursion routes are gentle but there is a choice of other routes for more experienced cyclists and those seeking a more challenging ride. Importantly SCS cycling holidays cater for most ages and abilities, families and single parent families, adult only, groups, couples and singles'.

'I have always been a keen cyclist, enjoying the opportunity that it offers to exercise and relax in the fresh air. I love the freedom that cycling gives to explore beautiful countryside and to enjoy the rich wildlife and cultural heritage through the seasons.'

'Cycling is a great way to relax: it stimulates the release of endorphins nature's natural feel-good agents, so it is an ideal holiday and lifetime activity.'

'It has taken five years to create Simply Cycling Slovenia, I have had to master the local Slovenian dialect, get to know a lot of people and with our friends and family have cycled all over the region and beyond. We have covered thousands of kilometers, researching the paths and byways, villages and towns, to assess and develop cycle routes and to check and update the accommodation and attractions along the way.'

'Edinburgh art dealer and naturalist, Raymond Chaplin wrote of our Region;'

"Pomurje comprises a great level plain of farmland, forests, pretty villages and thermal spas fringed to the north-east by the gentle wooded hills of the Goricko National Park. It is divided by the river Mura and bordered to the south-west by the rolling hills of Prlekija renowned for its vineyards and wineries. A great landscape and just made for cycling!"
