Do you prefer to cycle alone or only with people you know? You decide what time you will
start in the morning, what pace you want to travel at, and where and when you take a
break in our self-guided tours, where you will not miss our professional services.

Our detailed maps, route descrip-tions and GPS show you the way. Your luggage will
be waiting for you at your next overnight stop. Do not be worried about being on your

own in a different country. We rent you a mobile phone and provide a contact person to
help you in emergencies, in unexpected situations and in case of language barriers.

Daily segments

The average daily distance is 35 miles (56 km): the longest segment is 45 miles (72 km).
This distance is dependent on the distance between accommodation facilities and the
difficulty of the given segment. This distance can be changed by modifying the
organization of the program to suit either more demanding cyclists, or those wishing for
shorter daily trips.

Contact person and communication

When on the tour route, communication between you and us is done through our
assistance service, whereby a member of Topbicycle will act as a contact person for you.
We will lend out a mobile phone so you can call us. The contact person can help you in
case of emergencies, unexpected situations or the language barrier as well as contact you
with news to improve your tour along the way. Expect a prompt response if you call us.
We offer assistance in English, German or Czech.


Navigating your way along the route How not to get lost!

We use three different methods on our self guided tours to ensure that you find your way
along the route without difficulties.

Route Description

Each participant obtains a written description of the route, with distances provided
between important points along the trail, enabling one to keep track of kilometers
remaining to the end, etc. The itinerary contains further information (points of interest,
refreshments, etc.), so the participant can plan for each segment.

Detailed Maps

Cycling route maps
Each person gets a set of maps with their route highlighted in by us. The scale
of these maps is 1:50 000 (2 cm on map = 1 km of terrain) or occasionally
1:75 000 and are the best available maps in terms of accuracy and detail.

Town maps
Each person also gets maps of the towns they will be staying in with the
location of their accommodation marked in by us. Contact details to the hotels
and pensions are provided.

GPS Navigation

Each couple or group doing a self-guided tour also get a GPS console pre-programmed
with their route. We use American-made Garmin Geko 201 consoles, which are the smallest
and lightest waterproof GPS consoles available. Their small size does not hinder their
capacity. During navigation, it can tell you of upcoming turns, show speed during trip,
show time of sundown and give other statistical data.
