More of Ceska Kanada, including the castle at Cesky Rudolec. This is a very quiet ride with an uphill or two and one nice big downhill; otherwise, it's pretty non-descript. Having said that, it is definately worth going out and seeing Cesky Rudolec. I think in future, when reconstruction is done (and the town is giving itself a major makeover), you will want to be able to compare it to how it is now and say, "I was here when....". Cesky Rudolec is the main feature of this trip. It is currently under contruction and being turned into an hotel, but you can (for 10 crowns) go on a self-guided tour "at your own risk". It is a shambles, but it represents about 5 different architectural styles over approximately 600 years. For an almost ruin, it's quite beautiful. Currently, the castle is under reconstruction, there is a cycling pension being built directly across the street, a micro-brewery is being built, and the gardens and cemetary are being renovated. There is a pension in town and two regular pubs, both with gardens. The first one you meet has already been given the "Cykliste Vitane" recognition and the second one was bowing and scraping for it while we were there. It should have it by now.
