Cycling day trip from Prague?

I'm in Prague now for another few days and am thinking about renting a bicycle and heading out of the city for a ride. I'm in good shape and do a reasonable amount of cycling back home so I'm looking for a trip up to maybe 40km total.

I picked up a cycling map from the Prague Tourist Office, and it has tons of cycling trails on it, but I'm wondering if any of you have a route/destination that you really like. I much prefer a cycling trail to the road as I hate riding with cars passing me.

I'm thinking about just following the river up north, but I'd appreciate any other suggestions.

Also, I've seen a few rental shops but if you have any favourites, that would be great. And I'm not interested in doing a tour, I much prefer cycling by myself.

Thanks,

Jason

Here is more information about the trip to Karlstejn (and beyond) that Tejashombre mentioned:

tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g274684-i94-k75035…

The bike trails along the Berounka River are great. I have done the trip myself and it is amazing. I think we did 50 km total. If you stay along the river, then it is mainly flat, or you can go north of the river for some great hills. Best is to take the train out to Radotin or Cernosice (from the main station - the City Elephant trains) and cycle from there. You can make it all the way to Nizbor to the glass factory in one day - going all the way to Krivoklat is a bit much. If you need any more information, let me know.
