Singltrek pod Smrkem (“Singletrack under the Spruce”) is the first purpose-built mountain bicycle trail system in continental Europe. Weaving through the picturesque Jizera mountains above scenic villages with histories that date to medieval times, the trails provide nearly 40 miles of singletrack for riders of every skill level. The trail network follows the border between the Czech Republic and Poland, and every segment has been crafted with flow in mind.

In the character of the United Kingdom’s highly successful Trail Centres, Singltrek pod Smrkem boasts a comprehensive trailhead facility that includes a bike shop, rentals, café, bike wash, showers and changing rooms — all situated above a gorgeous lake. Just 2 minutes by bike from the town center, visitors can easily access the trails while enjoying the unique culture of the Czech countryside.

Serving riders in the Czech Republic, Poland, and Germany, IMBA’s only European Ride Center brings purpose-designed singletrack to an audience that is more accustomed to riding dirt roads and well-worn hiking trails. We’re confident that this cross-border trail network will soon attract a large base of appreciative fans.

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.
