We can go on the trip at any time of the year, but it is certainly most suitable when stable weather is forecast for a few days. How and with whom we go on the journey depends on the desire, physical readiness and time available for the pilgrimage. Some people like to travel alone, with their spouse, family or a small group of friends. Others feel safer on organized pilgrimages of various religious communities or organized by the Society for Cycling Jakobova pot Slovenija - Camino. Since 2010, cycling pilgrimages have been led by the married couple Helena and Franc Štefanič. Dates for all three Jakob's routes are published on the website of the Jakob cycling association, in the Družina weekly, on Ognjišče radio... Additional information can be obtained from the published contacts. The age of the pilgrim is not important. Anyone who can ride an average of 70 km per day across the rugged Slovenian landscape for three to five consecutive days at a moderate pace can apply, and cyclists on electric bikes are also welcome. bb3b-136bad5cf58d_           _cc781905- 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_         _cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b -136bad5cf58d_           _cc781905-5cde -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_   _cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b -136bad5cf58d_           _cc781905-5cde -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_         _cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b- 136bad5cf58d_           _cc781905-5cde- 3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_                 _cc781905- 5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_         _cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b -136bad5cf58d_           _cc781905-5cde -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_      

8. Kolesarska oprema za organizirano rom


The instructions are mainly intended for those who are going on a long journey for the first time.

Trekking bikes with trunks for storing travel bags are best suited for Jacob's Ways. Mountain bikes are also suitable. Riding for several days with a road bike (special bike) and with a backpack is not recommended, as the route is not easy, and there is no accompanying vehicle for transporting bags. With a new bike, it is necessary to ride several kilometers before leaving, so that the body gets used to it. It is very important that the bike is serviced before a long journey, because it is essential that the gearbox and brakes work flawlessly. A spare tube and basic accessories for changing and repairing punctured tubes are recommended. You need quality bicycle tires that grip the road well, even when it's wet. In heavy rain, the pilgrimage is temporarily suspended, if the weather does not improve, the transport of cyclists and bicycles is ordered. 

Proper, quick-drying  cycling clothes and footwear (no flip-flops and sandals!) are also important for well-being on a multi-day journey. There should be neither too much nor too little clothing. It is necessary to monitor the weather forecast and temperature changes throughout the day, as the mornings can be very cold. For worse weather, a waterproof windbreaker, trousers or cape and a protective cover for travel bags are required. Sunscreen is a mandatory part of personal accessories. Since it is necessary to consume more liquid during cycling, two water bottles are necessary, and energy drinks are at your discretion. Energy bars, magnesium and calcium are recommended.
