The guys leave České Krumlov for a town with the tongue-twisting name of Jindřichův Hradec. The ride starts with a history lesson at the Museum of the Iron Curtain, including artifacts, weapons, and border security tools.
Another enthusiastic cyclist, Tomaš, joins the trip after learning about it from a Facebook group. When a rainstorm delays their ride, the guys get creative to outfit Tomaš with some water-resistant gear. The weather won’t be the only obstacle on Day 8.
The group is faced with a Robert Frost-style dilemma when they come to a fork in the road with three possible paths to follow. Eventually they make it through the densely forested area known as Czech Canada to their hotel (if a little later than desired). See what they manage to find for dinner after 10pm in a small Czech town.
This route is perfect for a peaceful ride through the vast wilderness of Czech Canada. Next up, a taste of traditional Czech pastries on the road to Znojmo.
