Prague has few cycling paths or curb cuts and many cobblestone streets. This, plus the fact, that drivers pay little respect to cyclists, means that cycling in the city - though improvements have been made recently - is still not for the faint of heart.
Nevertheless, in the city and out there are many well-marked cycling routes which leads along less frequented roads. Especially in the countryside, you will find many of the yellow signs indicating wonderful itineraries passing along small country roads, field paths or forest trails. The Czech countryside is a true paradise for bike lovers. Below are a few addresses for renting a bike or joining an organised tour.
