Hundred-spired Prague, Prague – the mother of cities, magical Prague. These are just three titles which the capital of the Czech Republic proudly wears. Since the very beginnings of the Czech state, it has been its natural political, business and cultural centre. This historic yet modern city is more than 1,000 years old. It has an extraordinary charm about it which can be sensed in every season. Its status as a UNESCO World Heritage site speaks for its worth.

After 3 days stay in this city you get a 3 hour coach trip to the land of hundreds of kilometres of dedicated, picturesque bicycle routes on both the Polish and Czech sides. We would like to offer you bicycle trips in lower and higher mountains where the trails lead through wild nooks and open spaces from where you can see fantastic panoramic views of the mountains.

The most recent addition to our programmes are rides on singltreks.
singlreks are narrow mountain layered paths, merged with the landscape, which lead through forests – nature friendly. A singltrek runs along the side of a hill with a small incline. It winds among trees – never goes straight for too long, never goes up or down for too long. It is nicely adapted to the forest scenery and allows to enjoy cycling and being in the bosom of nature.

The person behind designing them is Daffydd Davis, an internationally well known creator of mountain bike trails. Trails like that are build bearing in mind minimal interference with the surrounding nature and maximum enjoyment of off-road biking. The first route like this, in this part of Europe, is the biking circuit singltrek by the SMRK, which is included in our offer.
