Czech Mountain Cycling

Loading our bikes onto the cable car

Black Mountain (1,299 meters), in the spa town of Janske Lazne, is considered the second best ski area in the Czech Republic’s Giant Mountains. Before the snow falls, though, it’s all about cycling and hiking. It’s easy to get to the top with the new cable railway line. A cable car easily fits two passengers and two bikes. And when you arrive at the bottom of the mountain treat yourself to a Czech favourite, apple strudel, at Hotel Omnia near the foot of the mountain. Conveniently located a few minutes’ walk from the bicycle shop and cable railway, Hotel Omnia is uber modern and first class every step of the way.

I made it to the bottom (10 Km)

        Apple Strudel in Prague

When in Prague, eat strudel

If you’re going to indulge in one dessert while visiting beautiful pastel Prague, this should be the one.  And I more than deserved it, after my cycling and hiking adventures in the Czech Republic’s Giant Mountains and Czech Paradise. The highest mountain range in the Czech Republic, the Giant Mountains are situated in
Bohemia, on the border between Czech Republic and Poland. Czech Paradise is the oldest nature reserve in the Czech Republic, with majestic rock formations and castle ruins. All this within a two-hour drive from Prague (Praha).
