Over the past few years, the net­work of cycling routes in the Czech Repub­lic has expand­ed sig­nif­i­cant­ly, con­nect­ing almost all the sights of the coun­try

The Czech Repub­lic has excel­lent oppor­tu­ni­ties for lovers of out­door activ­i­ties, hik­ing and cycling. An exten­sive net­work of cycle paths runs through the entire coun­try and is closed to vehi­cles. In addi­tion, many bike paths run along the main high­ways of the Czech Repub­lic. Bicy­cle paths are laid out in such a way that they con­nect almost all famous places, cas­tles and sights, and not only large cities. They pass through many small towns and vil­lages, open­ing old manors and muse­ums, pic­turesque land­scapes and life of the Czech hin­ter­land to cyclists.

And since 2010, anoth­er new cycle route has been devel­oped in the Czech Repub­lic, which will unite the cas­tles along the Saza­va Riv­er. Its length will be 45 km, and tourists will be able to see, in addi­tion to famous cas­tles, many oth­er sights not list­ed in guide­books.

When plan­ning a cycling trip to the Czech Repub­lic, you need to know a few sim­ple require­ments of the Czech leg­is­la­tion for equip­ping a bicy­cle. The bike must have work­ing brakes, a horn, white front and red rear reflec­tors, a white light front and red light tail, and front and rear guards. It is also rec­om­mend­ed to use a pro­tec­tive hel­met, and for chil­dren under 18 it is manda­to­ry. For drunk dri­ving there is a fine of up to 15,000 crowns (which is about 6,300 hryv­nias).

More good news for bike lovers. Now you can take a moun­tain bike or an ordi­nary bike at one of the rental points right at the rail­way sta­tion. To arrange a rental, you will need to present 2 doc­u­ments, pay 180 kroons for each day of use and leave 1000 kroons as a deposit. You can return the bike at any rental point through­out the Czech Repub­lic.
