          [EN]:
  The surroundings of Prague are not only about little satellite towns where little houses and their gardens are in full view. The surroundings of Prague are also about pleasant nature and interesting places. While wandering about you will come across small villages, where one might actually come to the conclusion that time has stopped there. You will also see vast suburban localities where it is a joy to live, industrial lands, roads of all kinds as well as typical Czech village squares and small structures. Put simply, you’ll get to know all that’s interesting about the surroundings of Prague.

  The whole route is 130 km long and leads along well-marked cycle route CT: 8100. Prague cycle routes are currently being renumbered and the Circle will be referred to as A50 (you might already now come across a part of the route already marked in this way). You can get through the entire route during one day, but that is only for cyclists who really persevere. For the rest three points of retreat have been selected (ESC1 to ESC3) so that you can interrupt your wandering and get back to town. The route mostly runs along side roads, a little bit along cycle paths and the resulting shape of the route is a circle. You must collect 12 numbers as you go. The route provides for many refreshment sites and you’ll find a pub in almost every village.

  WARNING! The route runs along a cycle route, which is an orientation directional guide for tourists; it partly runs along cycle paths, which is a path, or road if you like, which is only designed for cyclists (pedestrians, in-line skaters) – not for vehicle drivers (Source: wikipedia).

  The entire route is nicely depicted in a map called Prague on Bicycle (Prahou na kole, published by Zaket), which takes on a pleasant A2 format, or you can refer to the cycling and tourist map called Prague and Its Surroundings (Praha a okoli, published by Kartografie Praha), which also shows mileage. Should you like Shocart maps, you’ll need the maps called The Surroundings of Prague North (Okoli Prahy sever) and The Surroundings of Prague South (Okoli Prahy jih). Please refer to the Internet if you require more information about the route.

You can leave your vehicle at a P+R parking lot at Cerný Most, for example at N50°06.636 E014°34.958 (PARK).

Start: km 0,0 (N50°07.100 E014°37.522)
Start your wandering in Horní Pocernice about 20 meters from where Ve Žlíbku Street and Otovická Street meet in the direction of the railway underpass. You’ll see tennis courts to the right of the road and a sign bearing the name of the tennis club in big yellow letters on the fence.
A = The number of letters in word, which is also the designation for the animal.
And now set out on your trip in the direction of the railway underpass and then follow the signs.
Don’t forget to reset your cyclocomputer or GPS!

First stop: km 11,8 (N50°09.766 E014°31.473)
You have arrived at the village square where there is a big CHP plant. You’ll see the entrance to a nursery school to the right of the road. Above the entrance you’ll see a sign with the house number (red sign) and the reference number (blue sign).
B = The number on the blue sign.

Second stop: km 18,3 (N50°11.079 E014°26.813)
After a climb you will see that you are getting closer to a bridge that crosses the D8 Highway. There is a black sign with five numbers on the right at the given coordinates.
C = The last number on the sign.
Follow the route. Don’t look for any more bridges once you’ve gone downhill and come to a river but search for other ways how to cross the river at this point (TRAIL1).

Third stop: km 29,7 (N50°08.878 E014°21.958)
You have arrived at the crossroads where several tourist routes meet. Catch your breath, take a good look around and find a column with direction indicators for cyclists.
D = How many kilometers is it to Zbraslav?

Fourth stop: km 49,7 (N50°04.085 E014°11.310)
Turn left at the given coordinates, but before you do that find out more indications. A house stands to the right of the crossroads with chimneys on its roof tilting towards the road.
E = The number of chimneys on the roof of the house.

If you’ve had enough, take advantage of the first point of retreat (ESC1) and take the turn to the Zlicin metro station.

Fifth stop: km 59,7 (N50°01.753 E014°16.667)
Pass through Jinocany. A fenced pond lies beyond the village and you’ll see a small parking lot on its southern border. This is where a big tree with several trunks grows.
F = The number of tree trunks at a height of 3 meters above ground level +1 (even number).

Sixth stop: km 71,1 (N49°57.722 E014°17.460)
Ride down the gradual hill carefully. You are approaching a village where a big new villa is standing at the start of the village. There’s a little tin flag on the roof with a four digital number.
G = The number on the little tin flag that is repeated.

Seventh stop: km 76,3 (N49°57.649 E014°21.428)
You can say goodbye to the route in Cernosice and return by train (ESC2). But if you choose to go on, cross the footbridge over the Berounka River and go on until you get to Lipence. Before you reach the village (TRAIL2), leave the cycle route and ride through the village! Stop in front of the school and find the marble slab attached to the building. There are three numbers on the slab.
H = The middle (three digit) number on the marble slab attached to the school.

Eighth stop: km 92,1 (N49°56.346 E014°27.814)
Get back to the cycle route not far behind Lipence. Move on to Zbraslav and go on. Climb up from the Vltava Valley and once you get to Liben go round the pond and stop at a set of buildings that are surrounded by a low fence. A year is attached to the middle building.
I = The second number of the year written on the middle building.

Ninth stop: km 108,3 (N49°59.275 E014°37.271)
Chin up – you’ve only got a third of the way still to go! Follow the arrows. You’ll pass between the Pruhonice Game Preserve and Park. Then you’ll happen on a little village with a nice name - Kuri. A blue water-resource plant stands in the village square. You’ll see the producer’s trademark in a circle.
J = The number of points facing upwards on the plant producer’s trademark.

Tenth stop: km 117,9 (N50°02.276 E014°38.141)
Pass along the edge of Ricany. Your last chance to return by train (ESC3) is in Kolovraty. If you decide not to return, go on until you reach Kralovice. Stop when you reach the statue of a woman. There are two signs on the pedestal. We are interested in the larger of the two, the bottom one.
K = The number of letters of the first word on the bottom sign.
Calculate the coordinates of the last but one stop!

Eleventh stop: N50°G(K-J).JKC E014°JI.IGE
You are standing next to a telecommunication plant. On the door of the brown house there is a sign with the name of the plant and also pictograms (pictures) prohibitions. It’s those signs with the red background.
L = The number of prohibitions on the sign (number of texts with a red background + number of respective pictures attached to these texts; ignore the signs with a yellow background).

Recap and question: Do you have all the single digit numbers, one double digit number and one three digit number? Then everything is alright. Calculate the coordinates of where the Cache is located.

Twelfth stop - finish:> Complete the formula:
N = (B+H-D)°GL.(C+F)AB
E = (L+I)°J(K-B).K(J+E)B

The cache is 0,7 litre lock & lock container.

Notes:
1. All cyclists that complete the route and hunt down the Cache will be included in the Prague Circle Hall of Fame.
2. Please place and replace wooden Czech Wood Geocoin coins into the Cache, or possibly Geocoins or Travelbugs with a small pendant. Please do not place the little figures from Kinder Eggs or used tickets or anything of the like into the Cache!
3. I would very much appreciate it if you could make public the total length of the route and the time it took you to complete it.
I wish all of you a good ride and good hunting!
