Tomas Kvasnicka from Singletrek sent through this press release:
"IMBA announced the list of the model trail destinations - The Ride Centers. Singltrek pod Smrkem, a trail system lying near the border between Czech Republic, Poland and Germany is included; it is the first European destination to receive such recognition.
Last week IMBA announced the list of global MTB destinations chosen to serve as models and awarded them its IMBA Ride Center status. Among 7 of the places - and the only one lying outside of the US - is Singltrek pod Smrkem. The prestigeous Ride Center label means the destination lying near the border between Czech Republic, Poland and Germany is to become globally known and visited by mountain bikers from all over the world.
Singltrek pod Smrkem is the first "purpose built" trail system in contintenal Europe. It is inspired by the trend of Welsh, Scottish and Irish "trail centres" designed wholly for mountain bikers’ enjoyment. After he rode the trails at Singltrek pod Smrkem this summer, Hans Rey said: "This is the future of mountain biking".
Singltrek pod Smrkem suceeded in strict evaluation process run by IMBA experts for the quality of riding it offers to the wide variety of riders, from beginners to advanced mountain bikers. Yet, the quality of the trail system, designed by the mentor of European trail design, Welshman Dafydd Davis was not what launched it into the league of supreme trail destinations. What made the difference was the newly opened Singltrek Centrum, a state-of-the-art trailhead facility located in Nove Mesto pod Smrkem that offers all services and amenities demanded by present day montain bikers.
Singltrek pod Smrkem is a result of partnership between Czech communities of Frýdlant, Lazne Libverda and Nove Mesto pod Smrkem with the Czech State Forests (Lesy CR) which was joined later by Polish community of SÃ‚Âwieradow-Zdroj and Polish State Forests (Lasy Panstwowe). The creation of the trail system was managed by Czech trail experts who worked together with renown trail specialists, in particular with Dafydd Davis.
Singltrek pod Smrkem will enter the 2012 Season with 60 km of purpose designed trails for mountain bikers of all age and abilities. In the relatively short time of its existence Singltrek pod Smkem gained devoted fans not only from the Czech Republic, but also from neighbouring Poland and nearby Saxony. They all come to Frýdlant region, under the majestic mountain of Smrk (The Spruce) for the total mountain biking experience matched with quality trailhead services."
So if you're looking for somewhere different to take your Genesis then the Singltrek pod Smrkem has got to be high on the list of places to visit., and being a Genesis Dealer you'll be in capable hands.
