If you’re ever in the Berounka river valley just south of Prague, in the city of Řevnice, be sure to check out Martin Å torek’s excellent bicycle store. It’s always a pleasure to go into a store operated by someone who loves what they do, and this is definitely the case with Mr. Å torek. I dropped in partly to say hi, and partly to gawk at the newest, shiniest bikes and gear. Before I knew it, I had to buy some stuff.

This may be of use if you ever decide to try the Greenways Praha-Vienna bike route. I’ve done about 90km of it now, from Prague to near Přibram, and while there are a few confusing stretches that could use some better signage, it’s a most pleasant ride. My butt, however, has a different opinion.
