Klatovy’s Mountain Bike Marathon is the biggest bike ride in the Czech Republic
Klatovy’s Mountain Bike Marathon is the biggest bike ride in the Czech Republic, but be warned, it’s not for the faint-hearted. The marathon crosses the Sumava Mountains as well as rivers, so don’t attempt if you’re a cycling novice. There are various routes which cover up to 100 km and the races attract nearly 2,000 participants. Winners can be awarded up to 5,000 Czech koruna (that’s about £170), and there is a £20 fee to enter the competition.
