Stage Highlights

Chateau and villa Zborovice

A keep from the mid 17th century wich was later rebuilt into a baroque chateau. In it's nebourhood was also build a pseudorenaissance villa which is called New chateau. The original chateau was rebuilt into flats in the same period.

Church of st. Vavřinec

The first mentions of a church in this village are already from the 15th century. It has been rebuilt many times since then. And in the mid 19th century they even had to support the main tower so it wouldn't collapse.

Villa Tugendhat

One of the few extant works of the architect Ludwig van Rohe. This timeless building is amazing with its design and the way Rohe conected the interier with the garden. It cost the same amout of money as 30 classical family houses.

Stages Level

Regular Stages

Regular stages are designed for avid cyclists who love to ride every cm of the loop. They are long and on many different kind of terrains. Sometimes specific sections of the route need good sense of orientation and love for maps. E-bikes strongly recommended for occasional cyclists.

Shorter Variants

Shorter variants are designed for more casual cyclists and families and combine bike and train and the easiest terrain when possible. If trains allow us we like to design two shorter versions: one slightly longer for those wh owould like to challenge themselves and one much shorter for those who want to play it safe.

Road Bike Stages

Road Bike stage are designed specifically for racing bikes so are normally long as the regular stages or more and they follow small back roads with good asphalt as much as possible. Easy gravel or patched asphalt sections are present from time to time when unavoidable but for real short distances.

The second part of today stage, the one after Vyskov, is very hilly so if you don't feel very energetic today, we recommend you to chose a shorter stage.
