Ride your bike! Oct 08, 2016
There are lots of cycling trails around Krupka. The trails in the plain at the foot of the Ore mountains are very easy, no challenge at all, they take you to nearby interesting cities like Teplice, Usti n. L. e.g. and to smaller towns and villages. More interesting are the trails above the town. Some run along and wind up the steep slopes of the Ore mountains, very strenuous, and my favourites are high up on the main crest/plateau of the mountains.

For example, you can load your bike on the chair lift and after 15 minutes you're on top of Mt. Komari hurka without any sweat (pic 1). Up there you meet one of the most popular cycling routes in the Czech Republic, the "Krusnohorska magistrala" (Ore mountains main route) which is marked with number 23. There is a board with a map right outside the top station of the chair lift (pic 5). The fact aside that the views are phenomenal from the trail (pics 2 and 3), the trail is well maintained (mostly asphalt, often runs on minor roads with very little traffic) and marked. And the elevation difference is not too much, since the trail follows the main crest of the mountains, more or less.

From that main trail you can make detours across the border to the German side, where the main cycling trail "Bayreuth-Zittau" runs basically parallel to the Czech main trail, but with more elevation difference, since the valleys are much deeper some km north of the main crest. Last but not least, at the end of your cycling trip you may want to take one of the minor (local) trails (marked with four digits, e.g. 3009) down to the towns in the plain - always a nice, sometimes adventurous downhill route :-)

When I visited Komari hurka for the first time I saw a group of Czech cyclers having their lunch break there. They looked quite professional (probably were amateurs, though, pics 2 and 3).
