About
Riding an e-bike comfortably along beautiful Vipava river and sticking to the roads less traveled, you’ll discover the rich history and vivid landscape of this amazing wine county. Tasting the best ice cream in “Little Venice”, searching for Napoleon’s lost cannonball, and unlocking the mystery of king Theodosis – there’s much to take in on The River Trail E-bike tour! We’ll visit medieval remains of Roman fortress and continue our tour along the river. Our first stop is in the charming town of Vipava, also called a “Little Venice”. It’s a perfect time for ice cream, the best in the valley. Crossing Napoleons bridge starts our hunt for his missing cannonball. The mystery will unfold when reaching the medieval stronghold of Vipavski Križ where we stop for a coffee and relaxed stroll through tiny streets. Another stretch of cycling and we’re at the end of this tour enjoying a magnificent panorama over the valley and traditional Slovenian dessert “štruklji”.

        Great familiy biking experience!
        Alex immediately got us in the mood by greeting us very friendly and energetic. After this, he explained everything about the bikes very carefully. We were with a group of 8 people, and everybody got a super, perfectly fitting E-bike. We had a lot of fun during the ride, and enjoyed the incredible sights in de Slovenian mountains. This will definitly be a memory for our family forever. Thanks a lot Alex, keep doing what you do!

        A wonderful trip with e-bikes in nature
        My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our cycling trip through the beautiful nature of the Vipava Valley, guided by the extremely friendly and professional business owner Alex, who directed us to the hidden corners of the area. The e-bikes were brand new and flawless. This was my second time visiting the area and renting the e-bikes from RockVelo (was there 5y ago) and will gladly come back 🚴🏻‍♀️ I highly recommend!

        Top quality bikes & amazing day out!
        We rented 2 e-bikes from RockVelo. Alex dropped the bikes off at our hotel with a backpack, toolkit and bike locks. He also recommended an app with a customised route to follow. The e-bikes are top quality and we had a brilliant day exploring the vineyards & soca river. Highly recommended!!

        Great experience
        We rented two e-MTBs. The bikes were clean, well-maintained and fully charged. The owner helped us deciding which route to take. He suggested us to do the 60k route, which was amazing. The route has some climbs and some descents, which were all doable with the bikes.

        First class
        A fantastic day of independent cycling using these brilliant E bikes. They were brand new and great quality. Alex delivered them to our hotel and even brought a small rucksack for us to use. Locks and maps were provided too but Alex also showed us a very good app which helped us to navigate the area successfully on our own. He was very friendly and full of tips and advice as well as giving thorough instructions on how to use the bikes (it’s very easy!). The Vipava valley is stunning and virtually car free. We were there in July and the whole area was bursting with fruit trees, vines, sunflowers and summer vegetables. What a place! Thank you Rockvelo 😊

        Great rental bike and guide experience
        Alex was super helpful and had a great knowledge of the trails and roads of the Vipava Valley, an unspoilt and beautiful region of Slovenia. The bikes were super and communication was easy with Alex through WhatsApp. We will be back! The bikes were great too!!

        Amazing family experience. All bikes were in superb condition, even the ones for our children (which is rare). We got clear directions (GPS guided) to the most beautiful places in Vipava valley. We'll definitely come back as it became by far the best bike rental experience we had in life. Thank you Jana and Aleksej. P.S. there's a good coffe at the bike rental place!

        Getaway with my wife!
        It was a wonderful experience. My wife and I took a day without children and spent a sunny spring day on a 3-hour bike ride around Vipava. Alexei and Jana (Rockvelo) are the perfect hosts. They suggested a tour Ajdovščina - Štanjel - Ajdovščina and it was perfect. E-bikes also did their mission, as we cycled the whole tour in jeans :) Rockvelo, see you soon! :)

        Me and my friend rented e-bikes so we could check out a few places we haven’t been yet in our valley. The tour was mesmerizing and the bikes were in superb condition. Thank you Aleksej, we are definitely coming back soon!

        Good quality, good service, nice guy!
        We rented mtb's for a really nice tour through the valley. The bikes were very good and well prepared. The surroundings in the valley are stunning and the people we met very nice. Unfortunate we had a flat tire, but Alex responded very quickly and helped us out very good. So go on with the good work Alex and thanks for the good service!

        Magical vineyard ride
        It was a magical ride through the Slovenian vineyards. It was definitely worth it. Alex, the guide, was really kind and told us some nice facts about the area during the trip. The e-mountainbikes were super nice and made it very comfy. After the trip we did a wine tasting with our group, with local wines in an idyllic place. It completed the whole experience. Overall just amazing!

      My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic eBike tour of the Vipava Valley with Alex as our guide. Alex was great at keeping in touch, tailored the route to suit our requirements, and helped my wife overcome her initial lack of confidence (by the end she was powering off into the distance!). We found Alex to be thoroughly engaging, with a great sense of humour. He is a fount of knowledge about the area and Slovenian culture. Despite being a very experienced cyclist he was very happy to go at a pace suitable for beginners like us. We were lucky enough to enjoy perfect weather, made frequent stops to discuss points of interest along the route, and enjoyed some wonderful locally made ice cream! The tour finished with lunch in a delightful historic village. We couldn't have wished for better hospitality, and would thoroughly recommend RockVelo to anyone who wants to get out for an exciting and educatonal ride in the countryside whilst on holiday. Thanks, Alex!

      My husband, son, and I did RockVelo's E-bike Vipava River Tour and loved it. We're daily cyclists at home and really enjoyed exploring this corner of Slovenia by bike. Alex was easy to connect with and coordinate the tour and our guide, Rok, was excellent. The valley is beautiful and we'd definitely recommend exploring it with Rockvelo!

      A family of 4 (2 kids, one 1 and one 4 yrs old) had a blast in Vipava on e-bikes. Aleksej and Jana sorted us with really high-quality bikes, a child seat and a trailer. Aleksej is an amazing guide who totally adapted to our needs - he even anticipated when we will be hungry and arranged some local goods that were absolutely mind-blowing. Not to mention the wine at the end. I highly recommend to anyone visiting the area to do a few days of guided e-bike tours with Aleksej and Jana. We're definitely coming back very soon.
      Make sure you ask to take you to Vipava river secret spot. Proper zen area

      Dear Barry & the rest of the family Mommen! We were delighted to be able to set you up with the right bikes so you could do this really nice & easy tour along the Vipava River. Even though your daughter was riding a non-E-bike this was still doable and there are plenty of interesting things along the way to stop at, relax and enjoy the surroundings! We`re glad you liked the GPS navigation too as it really makes self-guided cycling tours easy. Many thanks for your kind review, we wish you a pleasant stay in the Vipava Valley! Sincerely, Alex
