Nýrsko, Šumava

Sometimes even the best plans don’t work. The plan was the second map below. However, when we arrived at Nýrsko, we realized that charging our batteries did not work. So, what now? We are not in the shape that we would be able to do 841 m elevation gain without a little help of our friend electricity. Luckily, the owner of the local coffee shop let us charge a little bit. So, we decided to shorten the trip and start it going uphill. If we would run out of battery, we could just turn around and go back the same way. Luckily, we made it to the highest point with just a little bit of charge left. And after that, it was basically riding downhill back to Nýrsko.

We were lucky that we could watch the wild water riding competition on the river Úhlava. To make Úhlava wild river, the dam above Nýrsko must release the water heavily.
