For cyclists on the Drava cycle route, a detour is planned from the Castle of Fala along the Ruše–Puščava regional road to Ruše.

The Slovenian part of the Drava Cycling Route is an increasingly attractive destination for both domestic and foreign cyclists. Under the slogan "An Experience Around Every Turn," it hides many adventures along and on the river Drava, from rafting, rowing, and swimming, to enjoying a variety of culinary delicacies, to learning about the cultural pulse of riverside towns. In the future, existing experiences under the brand Drava Bike will be joined by a new one, gold panning, which is being developed in the Municipality of Starše as part of the ZLATA DRAVA (Golden Drava) project.
The Partnership for the Drava Cycling Route, in cooperation with the Municipality of Starše, invites you to cycling along the route of the Drava Cycling Route and to the presentation of "panning for gold," as part of the GOLDEN DRAVA project, carried out in the Municipality of Starše.
