tips

Useful driving tips

01

ascents

Electric drive makes it easy, but not all-powerful. It is best to turn on TURBO mode, shift to the lowest gear, and gently pedal at minimum speed.

02

intersections

Sometimes it is difficult at an intersection to judge in which direction the navigation is pointing. Stop and zoom in on the map or head in one of the possible directions and follow the navigation to ensure you are on the right track.

03

slopes

Shift to a higher gear and brake with both brakes, maintaining speeds adapted to road conditions and your own abilities. Higher downhill – drive slower.

04

caution!

Tiny pebbles on the road are common and can slip in turns or when braking. Keep an eye out for endless bends and other impervious parts like the tops of hills.

05

battery status

The battery status is shown on the display in the form of 5 squares and range in km in the selected driving mode. The squares are more accurate because the range depends on the driving mode of the last few km.

Route description

The route is part of the standard route, but contains the turning points so that you can see the above mentioned sights. It is additionally tailored to the battery’s capacity so you can use all the benefits of an e-bike throughout the ride.
This tour goes from Stubičke Toplice and even before the exit from the place turns to local asphalted but weaker roads. Soon we start the first climbs that we manage with electric bikes with ease and bring us beautiful views of the hilly landscape of Croatian Zagorje.
Following the route, we first go through the Living archive of Gubec linden tree, and just a few hundred meters away we reach the Birth house of Matija Gubec. The house is open and definitely come in. Nearby is also a church next to which also provides a unique view.
Returning, we’re downhill, so be careful and on the brakes. Soon we cross over the creek. There you go of the bike, and cross by the bridge. Here are some macadamas, but soon we come back to the asphalt part. The next stop is Ethno Village Dišeća Starina: the actual display of several old Zagorje houses, family farms, church and … many exhibits. Here the time passes fast, and we are already halfway.

The road to Gubec Linden tree is abundant in downhill, so beware of speed and traffic. Here, we recommend trying the homemade Zagorski strukli. Not always available – but be sure to ask. Then descend again to the center of Gornja stubica, and visit the Memorial Park to Rudolf Perešin with the exposed MIG21 aircraft. We continue by uphill up to the Monument of Matija Gubec, within which is the Peasant’s revolt museum and Orsic Castle. You have already guessed – after uphill comes downhill. The slope is again steep, so be careful. Here is the return to Stubičke Toplice. The first part is asphalted and continues macadam partly and through the woods, so be careful with these parts. Follow the navigation not to consume battery too much turning off the route. If you want to avoid macadam and forest, return the return route the same way back.
Pay special attention to the railway crossings (marked, but there is no ramp), but also on small sand on asphalted and non-visible parts.

The ride takes only approx. 2.5h, but with occasional stays, can be extended for several hours, so be careful at the agreed time. Thank you.

Route description

Sam put od Stubičkih Toplica do Marije Bistrice glavnom cestom dugačak je 18km, ili 36km povratno. eBiciklom je lako savladiv. Manje prometnim lokalnim cestama, put je duži, ali je i doživljaj veći. Ruta prolazi pokraj Gupčeve lipe i Spomen parka Rudolfu Prešinu.

Dolaskom u Mariju Bistricu svakako dopunite bateriju – pola sata će biti dovoljno, a može i duže. Predlažemo kafić Dionis, no izaberite sami. Popijete li piće, usluga dopune baterije ne bi smjela biti problem.

Sa stražnje strane crkve je crkva na otvorenom, pa pripazite da ne vozite tim područjem.

 

Nakon obilaska Svetišta, ruta obilazi postavu drvenih skulptura: Park kolonija udaljen samo 250m od svetišta. Zanimljiva postava od više desetaka svetaca i puka koju svakako preporučamo posjetiti.

Povratak uglavnom ide manje prometnim cestama, opet usponima i nizbrdicama, prolazeći pokraj brojnih vinograda i klijeti. Prilikom približavanja Gornjoj i Donjoj Stubici, pripazite na označene pružne prijelaze, ali bez brklje i svjetlosne signalizacije.
