This cycling trip is a medium-difficulty trip to the beauties of the nearest surrounding of the city of Pilsen. A pleasant 25-km bike ride takes you into the nature so that you can explore the area of the pond system in Bolevec. Even if you do not want to ride uphill to Krkavec, you still have a great opportunity to look at Pilsen from the viewing tower in Sylvan. Although this cycling track is more suitable for cross bikes, there are no difficult terrain areas apart from two shorter sections along the narrower trail with roots near the Kolomazná pec. If you skip the uphill ride to Krkavec you will not even have any steep climbing along the way. It is almost a miracle how easy it is to get out of the city centre to the nature. See for yourself!
