QUALIFIED VET-TURNED-MOUNTAIN BIKE GUIDE IN SLOVENIA, BLAŽ HAREJ IS PASSIONATE ABOUT BIKING AND NATURE (AND TATTOOS!) IN EQUAL MEASURE
“After qualifying as a vet I then spent many years working as a coach in the pharmaceuticals industry before realising that my destiny lay in the mountains, rather than the office.
“I still wanted to use my coaching skills, so now I can combine these skills with my passion for mountain biking, as a guide and trainer.
“Being able to spend a week or more with like-minded people, sharing my favourite trails in Slovenia [link] and Croatia [link], and seeing riders improve their skills and grow in confidence day-by-day is the most satisfying feeling I know.
“Adventure, to me, is the joy of disappearing into the wilderness, leaving the stress of modern life behind to discover something new in nature, or indeed, about ourselves.”
