Osoršćica is hill on Lošinj island with its highest peak Televrin, 588 meters high. Ivan and I wanted to go in Bosnia for the weekend and had already planned everything , but due to Korona virus lockdown, we changed our plans and chose to explore Cres and Lošinj for three days. Ivan found out for the trail that goes from the peak st. Nicholas (st. Nikola, st. Mikul on local dialect) to Nerezine. Our start was from town Osor, from campsite “Preko mosta”. From there we just followed asphalt road which soon transformed into wide gravel road that leads to peak st. Nicholas. Just few hundred meters before peak, gravel road connects to singletrack trail. Last 100 meters hike&bike is needed due to steep ascent.

This is one of the epic routes that we ride maybe few times per year where we get our boundries examined in detail both in term of fitness and technical riding. For our effort we were rewarded with beautiful views.
Start of the route is in Belca settlment in the Municipality of Kranjska Gora in the Upper Carniola region of Slovenia. We parked our car and from there followed bike lane that goes along river Sava (here in Slovenia Sava has karst riverbed, in Croatia Sava is muddy river). After about 6 km, we turned right on the main road in Gozd Martuljek, and from there followed ascent to Srednji vrh.  At the beginning, ascent is on paved road with views on Julian Alps.
