Take the Red Line

If you are anxious about Prague city traffic on the first day of your bicycle tour, take the Red Line of the Prague Metro to Háje, then ride east to join Cycle Track 11 at Petrovice. Several hotels and tourist facilities, including a large youth hostel that operates during the summer months only, are located in Prague’s Jižní Mĕsto district. Šeberov, a village immediately to the south, has a campground and caravan park.

Jižní Mĕsto is a suburban area to the south of Prague, dominated by large, rectangular apartment buildings of the Communist era, and served by the Red Line. By staying in Jižní Mĕsto the night before you set off, you can shorten your first day by about 15 km. After Petrovice, the scenery becomes rural as you leave the Prague metropolitan area behind.

Prague Metro Red Line

A maximum of two bicycles are permitted in the back deck of each passenger wagon on Prague Metro trains. Some other restrictions may apply. Tandem bicycles are not allowed. The Prague metro uses an open ticket system. Passengers must buy and validate a ticket before entering the metro platform. Uniformed ticket inspectors have the right to check the validity of the ticket at any time within the compulsory ticket area.
