    prague rides/bike rentals

    Does anyone have experience with day trips around/just outside of Prague? I'll be going on a family trip there in a few weeks and would like to dedicate at least one day to cycling. I'll be with my parents, who haven't ridden in many years, so the route can't be too strenuous or long. Countryside would be best. I'm also looking for recommendations on where to rent bikes.

    Thanks in advance!

    I would try City Bike http://www.citybike-prague.com/

    I've had good experience with them, and also with Praha Bike http://www.artmap.info/index.php?idoflevel=21

    Both will get you what you need.

    As for routes, I would recommend cycling through Stromovka and Divoka Sarka parks.

    I write a blog about cycling in Prague (www.praguebikeblog.blogspot.com)

    Check out my Divoka Sarka Loop on my list of routes, as well as the Costas Loop, which is more in the city but a very easy ride. You can also keep riding north along the river toward Dresden, if you want more distance (see http://praguebikeblog.blogspot.com/2007/06/i-never-pay-ferryman.html)

    The Divoka Sarka loop does have some moderate hills. It depends on how old and fit your parents are, I guess.

    I hope this helps!

    Trust me get the hell out from prague. Go like 50 km south from Prague. You can take a train from central station to area called Posazavi. Its beatiful area and u can go around the river and you can swim there too. I live there so I know... Prague is dirty city and there are no roads to bike on. Czech people go only with cars.;-)
