    This has evolved into a series of short rides through Bosnia and Croatia. I am sure that it will soon have rides from Serbia and Montenegro posted too; I go to both countries frequently and both boast many interesting things to see and do with varied landscape to travel through.


    My first post started out with a trip through western Bosnia to the coast and then back up into central Bosnia and home to Sarajevo.

    It starts out here...

    Riding season is over now and we are getting ready for ski season to start up. Here are some pictures of a ride from Sarajevo to the Croatian coast that I took about a month ago when my wife was back in the States and my son was out of town playing soccer.

    Starting out heading towards Foca ~ :wink:

    Great scenery. I was in Bosnia (and Croatia & Slovenia) 4 years ago and I can't wait to go back sometime. Beautiful countries, great food, awesome people.

    It is good to stay on the road in parts of Bosnia and Croatia.
