Explore this wonderful part of Europe with all the Velo29 Events facilities over 93 beautiful kilometres of Czech Countryside and the centre of Prague!
We depart the PVA and quickly drop to the banks of the river Vltava and ride north on car free roads. We see all of the famous Prague sites, the weather in August is usually great in Prague and as we are out early the sun will be rising over Prague Castle, it’s an unforgettable start to a Sportive !
We continue along the river for roughly 30k before climbing out and enjoying some fine Czech Countryside. The roads are open to cars but remain very quiet as we twist through fields and small villages.
Soon we’ll reach Melnik and the feed stop where we say a temporary farewell to the long route riders. They will head North and cover another 60km before we see them again.
After the feed we drop down to the river Elbe and again enjoy splendid car free cycle paths along the beautiful river banks. We see parts of the world you’d miss in the car, this part of Czech really is a gem!
After 96km we roll back into the PVA HQ where Velo29 are waiting with a medal, post ride massage, a hot local sausage and of course a Czech beer. All part of the entry fee!
