024 – Iron Mountains  
Lichnice, Oheb, Wildstein and Sec Dam
1. 6. 2018

Iron Mountains are formed by hills with dense forests and meadows. The landscape is made for bikers. From Licoměřice, from the small private lookout tower, our way leads to the ruins of the medieval castle of Lichnice. It was the royal castle of Charles IV. and there is beautiful prospect from its tower. We ride bikes down the hill along ravine flattened with dry leaves to Třemošnice and count the number of wood ticks on us. We will visit the Hedvika valley and circle the Seč Dam. We'll save three cyclists from New Bydzov. On the way back we struggle a bit with time, the sun sets and it will be dark early.

The film is in Czech with English subtitles
