Rychlebské Stezky, Černá Voda (Czech Republic) - Bronze Level

The rural countryside region of the Czech Republic known as Moravia is covered in rolling green hills and quaint little villages. It is there in one of the smallest towns, Černá Voda, that you will find Rychleby Trails and its frontman, Pavel Hornik, who is both the town's mayor and master trail builder. The system Hornik created features nearly 60 kilometers (37 miles) of all-weather, sustainable trails that follow streams, pass by an old castle, wind through meadows and eventually climb over 470 meters (1541 feet) to a mountaintop overlooking Černá Voda. From there you can choose from a number of rocky descents or soar down on a buttery-smooth flow trail.

Once a year, IMBA recognizes outstanding mountain bike trails and locations with the IMBA Model Trail awards. The goal of this program — which encompasses Epics, Flow Trails, Gateway Trails and Ride Centers — is to inspire and inform, so that we can all have more great places to ride.
