All inclusive MTB holidays from a long weekend to a full week.
Ask yourself what you want from a biking holiday. Great trails for sure, tasty local food, comfortable accomodation, decent showers, complimentary post-ride homemade cake and beers. All of the aforementioned comes as standard with a Rideczech MTB holiday.
Rocks, roots, loam
This part of the Czech Republic offers you the rider all types of terrain. From rocky well worn trails to rooty and loamy forest singletrack we really have it all! The riding can be tough but on the flipside very rewarding. We ride up as well as down, no van uplifts. We do have the option to incorporate uplifts into some rides by using the ski lifts. We often dip our wheels over the border into Poland and sometimes into Slovakia.
Proper seasons and very little wind!
Czech benefits from having proper seasons (and very little wind), so in the riding season you can expect temperatures up to 35 degrees. In winter you can come back to Rideczech to have a go at XC skiing, snow shoeing, snowboarding and skiing. The biking season is from April until the end of October and as many of the trails are hidden in the forested areas, it is never too hot!
Relax in stunning accommodation with traditional food
We have completely renovated a large house which formerly provided seven flats for the workers and their families from the local woodmill. The guest side of the house comprises of three generous sized bedrooms (one double, one triple and one quadruple) all with ensuite bathrooms. Full bike workshop facilities and secure storage, games room and living area with your own kitchen. Think of it as being a biking-specific penzion. Table tennis, table football and darts will be waiting for you apres-ride, together with a cold beer and some of Martina's delicious cake! We want your holiday to be as comfortable as it is exciting. BBQs in the garden, where you will get to sample traditional food, surrounded by stunning views of where you have been riding. The house is, we think, a bit special and we are sure that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

XC skiing has become our go to sport during the wintertime. The bikes are hung in the garage waiting for spring and the XC skis are waxed and ready to go. XC skiing is this area is very popular, and for good reason. Jablunkov town ensures, that once the weather conditions are right, that the townsfolk have a machine prepared skiing trail that winds its way from Jablunkov into the mountains. So....Just a 10min walk from the Rideczech house gets you onto a machine groomed XC skiing trail! XC skiing is a very fast learning curve and even people who have never tried it before will manage. After a little time and once you have developed your technique you'll be gliding along just like the locals!
Our XC skiing holiday are run using the same format as our MTB holidays.
Fast flowing singletrack descents and "have another go" technical ascents...
Smooth and flat out.... or rooted and rocky....
Steady and gradual..... or short and steep....
100's of KM of loamy forest singletrack
In fact, if you like blasting along empty singletrack, darting between trees and having to stay 100% focused, then welcome to mountain bike holiday paradise! The majority of the riding we do here at Rideczech is in the surrounding forests. From very tight singletrack, where passing your riding buddy is a no go. To multiple line choice descents where you get the chance to pick and choose.
With our base being situated in Jablunkov, in the Olse valley and mountains on three sides, the days riding will inevitably start with a climb. On the flipside of course, it guarantees a downhill finish each day! Most of the time we will climb on forestry tracks but of course there is always the option to take a more technical route up if you want. Maximum altitude is around 1400m with our base in Jablunkov at 450m.
We can tailor the riding to suit you. If you want an easy day, we can do it. If you want to try riding some mad off piste stuff created by the lumber jacks, we can do that too! Nothing's a problem.
We are slowly clearing some of the old forestry singletrack.... This requires time and lots of work but the end result is some amazing singletrack.... We must have 100's and 100's of kilometers of this singletrack waiting to be discovered and cleared. Be assured we shall keep plugging away at it! Giving you more and more awesome singletrack to ride!
