Slovenia: Bicycle: 156 kilometres on Marathon Franja
After a short night with plenty of beers Aleš picked me up in the morning and drove me and my bicycle to Ljubljana, where the start of the marathon was.
Marathon Franja was premierely organized on 22nd July, 1982 by our cycling club Rog (Rog at that time was a well established Slovenian bicycle manufacturing company). Organizers back then decided to name it after World War II hidden hospital (now protected as a war monument) which the marathon passes on its way, thus paying tribute to the bravery of medical personnel, taking care of wounded Partisans and allied armed forces.
