Central Loop "BIKO" - Optional Stage 11

Tábor to Prague

Ride to Franz Ferdinand's last residence

This stage was created thanks to the kind support of

BIKO Adventures s.r.o

Stage general description

This stage is optional. Prague is approx 115 km away and the terrain is very hilly, 1000+ mt gain, and there is not much to see compared  to what you saw until now so we recommend getting a train. But if you have still some time and you feel like cycling more, we are surely happy to help.

This stage can be entirely skipped by train

Minimum distance and gain: 57 km / 430 mt

Maximum distance and gain: 77 km / 900 mt

Road Bike distance and gain: 107km / 1500mt

Some of the amazing things you will see on this stage

Konopiště Castle

The birth of the town in spring 1420 took place under exceptional circumstances. It is linked not only to Jan Žižka, but also to Jan Hus, the great reformer of the Catholic church.
