Circle Lake Bled on Pony Bikes by us

With their 65-year long tradition, Rog bicycles represent the symbol of the Slovenian bicycle industry. The first bicycles were manufactured in Ljubljana soon after the end of the World War 2. The golden age of the Rog Factory was in the 1970s and 1980s when they successfully expanded their offer and production. However, at the end of the 1990s, the company was in crisis and stopped the production, but the popularity of Rog bicycles still remains today.

»We hereby invite all Pony fans, with older or newer models, to circle Lake Bled with us on a Saturday night, the 26th of August, 2017. «
