Mountain bike tour of Prague parks & nature
A day trip through Prague on cycle paths and mountain bike tracks. Let’s discover parks and forests of the city.
We will be passing from neighborhood to neighborhood through beautiful green areas, some domesticated while others are still wild. Throughout Prague and its surroundings, parks have been built to serve various purposes; you can find them around castles and places of historical importance or as sport and leisure areas.
The many parks of Prague are one of it’s hidden treasures, which tourists often miss.
With this tour you can be sure that we will try to get every little single track and dirt road in those parks! Still the tour is not for advanced mountain bikers but for fit people who would like to have a work out while discovering Prague. The difficulty can be adjusted on route so we can add more technical sections if you wish to challenge yourself with some quality mountain biking.
You will forget that you are actually still riding in Prague.
