Probably the shortest and easiest bike trip that you can take from Jičín is to the west to the Jičín basin, whose two axes are the Velký and Malý Porák streams. This area is the northern outcrop of the Baroque Marian Garden, so you will see a lot of religious monuments. The circuit is only 13 kilometers long and there are no large hills, so you can do it with children

From Jičín we will head in the direction of Březina, take the bypass and after a while we will have a view of the small Jičín airport

Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in Březina

We arrive in Březina, where we leave the road and set off on a dirt road. Here is also the first Baroque monument on this circuit – a small church

Statue of St. František u Březiny

After less than half a kilometer we reach the statue of St. Francis. Here it is worth turning right and drive to Ostruženské rybník, which belongs to the Ostruženské rybníky Natural Monument.

Church of the Exaltation of St. Crosses in Ostružno

It is definitely worth going a few hundred meters to the church in Ostružen

View of Veliš

From Ostružno we set off in the direction of Hlásná Lhota, in fact we have already completed more than half of this short ride. In front of us we have a beautiful hill Veliš, from the top of which is probably the most beautiful view in the vicinity of Jičín

Views from Hlasna Lhota

From Ostružno we descend to the valley of Velký Porák and then the steepest exit on this circuit to Hlásná Lhota awaits us. From here there is a nice viewing section along the surrounding hills. Sněžka can also be seen from here with good visibility
