  Cycle Trails 037 - Ještěd Ridge  
(Hard ridge trail with beautiful views)
1. 7. 2019

The dominant of Ještěd Ridge is the rotating hyperboloid from architect Hubáček. The climb is hard, fortunately except for the prospect of Ralsko and Jizera Mountains we will meet several pleasant pubs. We will visit another work of modern architecture - Transbordér pod Hamrštejnem by Martin Rajniš. And finally, take a ride with two cableways and try one of the downhills Ještěd bikepark.

The film is in Czech with English subtitles
