We ride South from the centre of Prague to Tabor and it's labyrinth of medieval streets. The following day we continue our journey to our final destination of Cesky Krumlov a UNESCO World Heritage site.


Arrive into Prague the evening before and stay near to the historic old town and visit the sights this city has to offer including the Charles Bridhe and Wenceslas Square. The following day we begin our ride heading south along the River Vitava. Before taking quiet roads into the medieval town of Tabor and it's cobbled streets. 

From Tabor we continue south and west towards our final destination of Cesky Krumlov. Not before cycling along through Ceske Budejovice the capital of the South Bohemian region, famous for it's breweries including Pilsner.

We think the nicest town in Europe. time to sample some of these infamous Czech beers.

What is a Level 3.0 Cycling Challenge Like?

These rides are typically multi day rides, with medium distances and undulating terrain. Level 3 rides suit riders who ride regularly, and are looking for something challenging but manageable. In the case of single day events, you can expect up to 8 hours of cycling with breaks. In the case of a multi day ride, you can expect a slightly lower daily duration - but of course - the effort is sustained over a longer period. You should be a competent rider, with regular training outings - both at the weekend and ideally with another session during the week. A 10 week training programme is available for our 3 star rides.

 

How Fit Do I need to be to join a Level 3.0 ‘Bike Ride’?

You need to have good endurance for these events. You must be used to doing long bike rides in the countryside of 5 hours + and distances of between 45 - 55 miles . You should be doing regular exercise - with some serious cycle training (at least twice per week in the run up to the event). Your typical comfortable cycling speed will be around 21-23 km/hr on flat and gently undulating terrain, and you should be able to cycle at higher speed for up to 1 hour or 25 km (on a road bike). You may also blend in other types of exercise - but for longer periods of time (ie sessions in excess of 1.5 hrs.) - however cycling is the best preparation (obviously!)
