Day 2: Beer and Biking, the Best Way to Weather a Storm

Route description:

Day 2 of the Travel Vlogger’s trip across the Czech Republic started with an ambitious goal. Much to the surprise of their local guide, the sixty-one-kilometer ride from Františkovy Lázně to Karlovy Vary would be the furthest they had ever cycled.

The view and weather start off on the right track, with springtime flowers blooming along the Ohře River (shout out to allergy sufferers, beware the pollen). The guys make a few stops along the way and pick up some local trivia – the importance of foam, insights into Czech beer culture, and which body part shares its name with the Czech town of Loket.

Mother Nature throws the team a curveball, but they find a way to entertain themselves as the storm passes. On the road again, the afterglow of the storm makes for ideal viewing at the granite rock formation of Svatošske Skaly (Svatoš Rocks).

This route is perfect for beer lovers with a high stamina for cycling. Next up, go beyond beer to discover Czech wines and the town of Litoměřice.
