023 – From Giant to Jizera Mountains  
From the cradle of the violinists to the village of bird hunters
1. 5. 2018

From Paseky nad Jizerou - the village of Godforsaken Patriots, leads our way along the valley of the Jizera River from the Giant Mountains to the Jizera Mountains. They are favored by cyclists, because their ridge forms an extensive plateau, and when you go up you ride bike by plane. The surface of a series of paths forms a fine gravel and you can also cross the terrain. There are many beautiful sightseeings on our route, such as the Vlašský Ridge, Štěpánka Lookout Tower and Jára Cimrman Lighthouse. And when you are at the Lighthouse, do not forget to visit U Čápa restaurant where they brew a fine beer.

The film is in Czech with English subtitles
