has anyone ever ridden the Parenzana trail?
It is a 123km rail-trail from Trieste - Poreč with lots of small bridges and tunnels, nice landscape, beautiful old villages, forest and mostly good weather.
I think I was the first person riding this trail on a unicycle in 2019 and thought it would be cool to ride it with a small group.
If you know someone who was also unicycling this trail, please tell me so that I can stop bragging around
If you are motivated to come with me this year, please tell me so we can arrange a date
@JSom it starts in Trieste, the end point of the Maritime Silk Road(!), then follows the Slovenian coast and ascends to about 100masl right after the Croatian border. the night could be spent right after Grožnjan (today known as “Town of artists”), after which the path descends steadily till Motovun (also interesting), but ascends again till about 300masl (Vizinada) from where it’s a ride through vineyards until Poreč.
From there we could ride back to Trieste along the Istrian coast.
It would be great!!! I live 200km far from Trieste. But my small daughter is born yesterday so I do not think I can ride away this summer without other children. But I’m gonna ask for sure to my friends
Thanks for the answer and for the links. Very interesting area. I will definitely read it. I was already interested in this road as a potential travel route. Let the situation stabilize only with COVID.

There’s asphalt in Slovenia and gravel in Croatia. It was a smooth ride on the KH36. Since it is a rail-trail, the steepness is quite manageable.
As I rode it two years ago, the toughest was the heat and some guardian dogs.
