Czech Canada as seen by bicycle through the eyes of an American, a Czech and a 13-year old.
From an historical perspective, this part of the Czech Republic is particularly interesting because it had been off-limits to the public from between 1968 with the Russian Invasion and 1989 with the fall of the Iron Curtain. So what we have is really pristine forest and clean rivers, ponds and lakes everywhere to visit. This is a great area for mushrooming, particularly the Chanterelle variety, though there are plenty of Boletus/Porcini, too.
The summer weather the last two years has been crazy, so in addition to nice hot days be prepared to bring something to protect you from the rain while on your ride. I enjoy getting wet sometimes, but I have found that those little neoprene booties to protect your shoes and some form of poncho are really nice to have around when a storm hits.
Try and take the half day to ride the old narrow-guague, steam train out to JIndrichuv Hradec and back.
