Bikepark Špičák

Bikepark Špičák is currently the most progressively developing bikepark in the Czech Republic.

It was in 2006 when experienced trail builders Tomáš Lučan and Tomáš Procházka rode local ski slopes and forests for the first time. The first freeride track leading from the top of the mountain was opened a year later. It is revamped regularly ever since, and new, more difficult lines are made, which is a nice exception from the general “make it easier” practice of these days.

Špičák offers a good amount and several options to combine freeride, downhill, North Shore and jumps.

The bikepark focuses mainly on freeride and downhill, however, it also has jump sections, singletrack and skill centre for beginners that is located at the lower ski lift station.

Tracks lead partially through forests and over ski slopes. All of them have wooden features and other fun things. 

The local trail named “Struggle” has hosted the IXS European Downhill Cup event for many years. Bikepark Špičák is the only Czech bikepark that is included into a group of European bikeparks where GraVity Card season ticket is valid. Complex amenities are a great advantage for bikers, and so is the fact that another German bikepark Geisskopf is only about 40 kilometres away from Železná Ruda.
