Join us for a 4 day long weekend in the middle of summer in two of the gnarliest and in our opinion best locations to ride in both Czech Republic and over the border in Poland – Rychlebske Stezky & Czarna Gora. Added to it we can stop by in one of the close-by parks like Kouty, Dolni Morava or Peklak as a bonus on the way home. We have combined the two main destinations as they are less than an hour away from each other, one is pedal-only and the other is lift-assisted all the way to the top so your legs get a day or two of rest from pushing the pedals. There’s no upper limit for the group size as we can add guides/delegates if additional people want to join easily.
As part of the package you will have accommodation, guiding for the whole time as well as entry to the parks and lifts (where applicable). Transportation is optional, otherwise we will connect participants to find a seat in the car and place on the bike rack. Please see the Included tab for more details. Below you can find info on the main areas we will ride.
Czarna Gora or the Black Mountain as a bike park destination has been known in the past mainly for its downhill focus, as the first tracks here are very challenging with a heap of big obstacles, especially in its natural form – rocks and roots paired with often very steep (DH-style) terrain and big man-made jumps on the lower sections. However, in recent years, the resort has begun to transform into a more enduro-friendly location and now boasts 15 trails of various difficulties (mostly red & black diamond) with about 1.8-2km downhill. What you can expect is a lot of routes snaking around throughout the whole mountain of Czarna Gora. On top almost all of the trails feature rocks of every size and shape. Aside of Milky Way and the short jump & dirt trails on the small lift all of the trails are quite difficult and therefore are recommended to upper intermediate to advanced riders. You won’t find a smooth stretch of trail for longer than a few meters. For lovers of enduro and technical riding this is paradise, but we do not recommend going here when it rains, because then biking changes into scooting instead.
Rychlebské Stezky are by far the most famous MTB location in Czech republic and are also one of the most unique places to ride in Europe. During the riding weekend we will explore the best that Rychlebské trails have to offer. There are 14 trails made of boulders and stones of all sizes and shapes, each trail is literally laid out by stone and on some such as on Obelix, you will hardly touch “ordinary” soil. Some boulders as the one on the T-Rys reaches the dimensions of a bus, so it is not only an interesting ride, but also a beautiful visual experience, as the trails look like a masterwork of art. In case it rains, it doesn’t matter, as the stones here, thanks to their unique structure, have great grip even when wet.
As a bonus on the last day we can make a stop in one of the smaller bike parks along the way home – Kouty, Dolni Morava, Kopřivná or Peklák. We will see whether we still want to ride one of the two main destinations or instead look at one of the previously mentioned bike parks, which are also a lot of fun.
We will be accommodated close by for the 3 nights so that we don’t have to move around and maximise the time on the trails. In both cases there are jump and skill parks as well as a bike service and shop at the HQ, so there should be no problem dealing with an issue on the bike. Also there are restaurants in each location so we won’t have to go far for food or drinks during and after the riding.

See you on the trails!
