A nice 40.5 km bike route, which peaks out at 239m. One spot where I stopped was at a home named after a castle in the Czech Republic. A very interesting story that I got from the lady of the house - an elderly woman whose husband died 14 years ago.
It is a large property with lots of trees in the front part, so you can not even see the house from the entrance. There is a little booth between the entrance and the Křivoklát sign, where the woman sells avocados - a very common thing around here.
Single-lane bridges on rural roads.
I saw a minivan at the end of the driveway getting ready to leave, so I waited at the entrance where we chatted for a couple of minutes. I asked her about the sign, and she explained that the famous castle was where her husband lived before leaving the country in the 1950's.
She said he was a forester and lived along with a bunch of other workers in one of three houses on the castle grounds. In fact, she said, he was born on the castle grounds.
