THE ZICKA KARTUZIJA MONASTERY

The tour starts in the village of Frankolovo. After one kilometre we start to climb towards the village Sojek, the highest point of this tour. The ascent is 6.2 kilometres with 4.7% of the average slope, then 2.7 kilometre of descent where we arrive at the Žička Carthusian Monastery.

The name derives from the name of the secluded high mountain valley of Chartreuse in France, in the Dauphiné Alps, where in 1085 Saint Bruno and his companions had the first Carthusian monastery Grande Chartreuse (Gránd šartréz) built, also the Grand Carthusian Monastery.

LOUDOUN COUNTY GRAVEL

Loudoun County boasts some of the oldest, best preserved, and still-connected network gravel roads in the country. There is actually an organization called the 1725 (for the year 1725) project that looks after the preservation of these roads. You will roll past lots of horse farms, old stone walls, and occasionally share the road with an equestrian or two. Enjoy the budding scenery and quiet roads on a rare blue sky day this Spring.
