Prazske Schody - Prague Steps - Bicicle race in Prague

In the context of the recent news of the first Czech gaining good scores at Tour de France, I can’t not recall the bicycle race, that takes place every year in Prague historical centre.

It is called simply Prazske schody, ‘Prague steps’. And as the name indicates, a significant part of the race are the hideous steps that await for locals and tourists for example around the Prague Castle.

That means about sixty competitors meet with huge applause from about ten thousand visitors every year.

Most popular is the tradition of descending the 189 Castle steps. Prazske Schody is unique to this discipline as all similar competition take place in an open country.
