Anyone who has cycled in the Czech Republic in the past will likely have run into the problem of inadequate services for cyclists. Hotels often have had no space to store bicycles, the staff may have had no idea where the nearest bike repair shop is, and restaurants probably have not catered to those doing strenuous exercise. But this is now changing. The new Cyclists Welcome project has been developed to improve the quality of services for cyclists.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Cyclists Welcome is a nationwide program for the preparation, evaluation, and inspection of bicycling-related services and facilities of participating establishments. The certification standards are comparable to systems in other European countries (e.g. Bett & Bike in Germany and RADfreundliche Betriebe in Lower Austria). Certified establishments display a green and white logo depicting a smiling bicycle. Every tourist facility awarded the Cyclists Welcome logo have met certain requirements to ensure they cater to bicycling clientele.
