This route encompasses the very best of Jeseníky and Golden Mountains, offering a diverse terrain ranging from bike paths and gravel roads to singletracks and forest trails. Starting from Hynčice nad Sušinou, the route heads northwest towards the Golden Mountains, almost reaching the Polish border. This section consists of more or less fast sections.
North of the town of Jeseník lies the stunning Golden Mountains, which are among the most beautiful parts of the Czech Republic. The route leads along paths through the untouched nature of the mountain, which remains preserved thanks to the low number of visitors. It's a somewhat forgotten bike region, but one that's definitely worth exploring.
The first half of the route is like a mountain swing, with a slight ascent followed by a short descent and repeating several times. After the second drive through the town of Jeseník, the second and more challenging part of the well-known Jeseník area awaits. Here, gravel roads are replaced with steep asphalt sections, which will definitely make your legs burn. The hills around Hynčice pod Sušinou can be quite demanding, but the stunning views more than make up for it.
After the mountain gravel part, you'll reach the top of the Dolní Morava bike/ski resort, where the reward awaits in the form of a long descent and a short loop in the opposite hills. However, as is usually the case, after the descent, you'll have to hike up the altitude meters again. You'll ride along the spinning cycle path along the Morava River, which turns under the foot of Kralický Sněžník and runs alongside the biggest hills of this area. It's said to be the cycle path with the most beautiful views of the entire Jeseníky, and we can definitely confirm that. In the final kilometers, the nature changes, and instead of high-altitude gravel roads, you'll ride through fields and meadows, and we've even included some ford crossings for added fun.
During the Jeroboam route, there are three organized refreshment stations and one place to sleep. We'll provide transportation for items such as sleeping bags and mats, so you can focus on enjoying your ride.
You will see all the hidden gems of the Jeseníky Mountains in these 150 km. The shortened version of Jeroboam does not forgive any mountain gravel parts and steep sections at uncompromising hills around Hynčice pod Sušinou, likewise, no stunning views will be missed.
The route starts with fast sections on and off gravel paths towards the city of Jeseník. Then comes the more mountainous section, which will definitely make your legs burn. The most gorgeous part of the route is the spinning cycle path along the Morava River, which turns under the foot of Kralické Sněžník. It's said to be the cycle path with the most beautiful views of the entire Jeseníky, and we can definitely confirm that.
In the final kilometers, nature changes, and instead of high-altitude gravel roads, you'll ride through fields and meadows. We've even included some ford crossings for added fun. It's going to be a very tough one-day ride where you can challenge yourself.

WARNING: after first time experiencing gravel you will fall in love with it!
What does "gravel" exactly mean? Originally it was a road surface. Then it became a type of bike capable of much more than just riding on gravel. Now above all "gravel" is a way of cycling: discovering new places & people and the fun on the journey rather than just getting to the finish line fast. Jeroboam, in its various distances summarizes all the possible approaches to the gravel world: from the most adventurous to the most "racy" (although not a race!) For this reason, remember we will give very precise indications on how to prepare your bike for each distance as soon as we will have the final routes.
Not just riding, but also spending time with friends and other cycling enthusiasts. Jeroboam in the Czech Republic will feature an expo area and a space to socialize with good music and interesting stories.
You can look forward to additional programs from our partners, demo bikes, service point, bonfire, an outdoor party, and a concert by a local rock band on Saturday night.
A complete schedule of the events at the village will be available soon on the Kolovna website.
The tough hills of the Jeseniky Mountains are a challenge for any cyclist and will cost you a lot of calories that need to be replenished. While some may opt for an energy bar or gel, we are not convinced it is the best way to refuel. Therefore after the ride and also during the event good food, barbecue party, premium coffee and good czech beer of course will not be lacking in the Jeroboam village.
The details about the village kitchen menu will be available at Kolovna website soon.
It is well known that there is no better cure for insomnia than a long ride. To sleep like a baby, but also to fully experience the atmosphere of the event, you can pitch your tent in the camping area, free for all participants.
