In the thesis we have presented proposal of mountain-bike trails in the area of municipalities Litija and
Šmartno pri Litiji. Both municipalities are mountainous, both of them are surrounded by forest, the
terrain is varied and exciting and because of this, a lot of people started to practise mountain biking.
The municipalities, have a rich cultural and natural heritage, yet the tourism on this area is poorly
developed, because the municipalities put to small effort investing into their recognisability. Because
of the natural resources of municipalities and because of poorly developed tourism, we think, that the
municipalities have a great potential for development of mountain biking.
The thesis is divided into two parts, the theoretical and the practical. In the first part we studied
development of mountain biking and cycling tourism. We also reviewed the legislation referred to
mountain biking. In the second part we studied the existing mountain cycle routes and we proposed
the placement of new mountain biking routes. We travelled routes and recorded them with bike
computer, then we digitalized them and placed them on the national topographic map.
