View Medium Route
Depart the National Exhibition Centre and immediately descend to the banks of the River Vltava as we meander along the banks through one of Europe’s finest cites!
We pass all the famous land marks and the scenery is stunning, furthermore we are on car free superb cycle ways as we head away from the City. You will be amazed at the start of this event, hopefully the buzz will keep you going for what lies in store!
The ride climbs away from the Vltava and heads into beautiful Czech countryside. The roads are open but it’s quiet as we pass across fields and through small villages. You’ll be reminded of Flanders and roads like the ones we enjoy in the early season classics.
We pass the City of Melnik and head into the beautiful bohemian forests, past stunning lakes and ride towards Kokorin Castle which you simply won’t believe!
The long route does a full loop of this gem of an area which is little known, even by Prague residents before heading South again towards the City.
We re-join the Medium Route riders near Melnik again and drop down to the River Elbe. Again car free cycle paths which take us past parts of the Czech Republic which you’d never see in a car!
After 154 km we are back to the National Exhibition Centre where the team will welcome you with a massage, local sausage and of course a Czech Beer. All included in the price!
An awesome ride for anyone wanting to sample this beautiful part of Europe with all the facilities you enjoy in any Velo29 event.
