We went there last year with no plan, mixed camping and hotels, i don't use a sat nav so can't give you any co-ordinates or any of that stuff, i'll dig my map out tonight, but for now -

Didn't bother with Prague.

Plzen is nice, we stopped in hotel rango which is just off the main square. bike parking available round the back. we stopped two nights, had dinner there both nights with a botle of wine, worked out about Ł135. thats for two people, with breakfast. nice, clean, friendly, and cheap!
the brewery tour is worth doing in plzen, just to get a glass of unfiltered beer...mmm......

Sedlec ossuary in kutna hora (google it), its bizzare, if you're near - you have to go.

Trencin in Slovakia is lovely,we were sat 'people watching' in the square having a beer, and i don't think i saw more than 6 men, whereas there were stunning women everywhere. we stopped at the campsite on the island near the football stadium, a wooden bungalow was 18euro(4 beds). its a bit like going back in time, but thats what makes travelling interesting. graet view from the top of the castle.

We found a campsite that wasn't on the map(half the roads we went down were not on the map), i'll look exactly where it was when i've got the map in front of me(i highlight everything interesting). absolutely stunning setting, cheap bar, Ł6 per night for 2 people.

We went there on my Bonneville, two up with full luggage, so you shouldn't have any problems.

ok, i have the map in front of me.

the campsite i mentioned is just north of Kramolin, about 20km east/southeast of Trebic.

the border crossing directly north of Vienna, place called Hate. there is a big duty free complex/theme park, there is an airliner thats now a cafe......we parked under the wing just because we could. again, its a bit bizzare.
(lots of brothels/lap dancing bars along this road aswell).

just west of Znojmo is a big cycling area(lots of cyclists in Czech), loads of pensions/hotels, and some vineyards.

on my map I have highlighted the road between Jemnice heading west to Stare Mesto pod Landstejnem, and from Cimer west to Lasenice.

we stopped in Ceske Budejovice for lunch, nice big square in the city centre, less than Ł10 for 2 pizzas and 2 cokes.....

i have also highlighted the road from Vimperk heading north west to Susice, and from Uherske Hradiste south east to Stary Hrozenkov.

i got a rear puncture in Slovakia somewhere, and managed to sort it out with my basic german, people are very friendly and helpfull.

hope this helps.

Hi! In the Czech Republic a lot of interesting places, but I highly recommend you to visit Adršpašsko-Teplické skály ( http://www.adrspach.cz/ ), awesome place! There's a must-stay for the night and the whole day walking on specially laid tourist routes. See our photos of this place from the 28 page http://photo.qip.ru/users/panda-77/4110081/?page=28

If you are have an interest's in castles, I will recommend you do not miss the castle in Bojnice (Slovakia) - we have been impressed a lot. Close to the castle located thermal pools, so you can see a sightings and warm your body in hot water under the sky.



I wrote small report in Russian about our trip in 2010, you can see some photos about Slovakia at least. If you will like I will let you know how to get it.

This year we are going to ride there again.

As previously said by Panda, Adrspach is a nice place. Great place for a nice walk with interesting rock formations.

We stayed at Pension Adrspach. The bikes parked safely, and the staff friendly (although not too flexible). We went to the restaurant 5 minutes past 8. Since it closed at 8, the owner still there, we hoped to get some food anyhow, but no, they had closed the kitchen. We would have been happy with just a slice of bread, but it wasn't possible. The hotel next door had its kitchen open until 10pm, and the bar open until the early morning, so we ate and drank there. Locals were there too, so it was nice and cozy. I regret we hadn't checked in there.

Cry

Thanks every one for tips.
I have a real problem now, and i dont know what to do.
I have goten a offer to join two close friends for a road trip in California and Nevada for 21days.
I have just bought an appartment thats gona be finished i next summer and i cant afford to take two three weeks trip.
I am realy strugeling to make up my mind. The Stelvio and Dolomites is somthing i real want to do, but if i take that trip im going solo for two three weeks and that can get alitel boring in the evnings.
The California trip will be in a car!!! I could rent me a Harley but it will not be the same as the Alp.
sigh.....

Possible Now things may be impossible tomorrow, but do not worry, the opposite is also possible .

There are so many interesting things everywhere. As a family and home, I was unable to go four years.

I have a friend who, 10 years was a musician in Norway and Finland. 2 years ago inspired me for a tour of Norway, Sweden Finland, but it was almost impossible for me expensive.
