Practical advices

A route with a moderate level of difficulty will allow you to test your fitness. Remember that the terrain has a huge impact on how many kilometres you can cover. Trails on flat roads are less strenuous than those on hills or mountain roads.


Planning a group trip? Match the route to the fitness of the weakest participant.


A helmet and light clothing made of breathable materials will be essential for safety and comfort on the route. Other than that, only put on the essentials. Heavy luggage will make your ride more difficult. Also, think about what you will carry the necessary items in. We suggest a backpack or panniers for your bike.


Be prepared for possible breakdowns on the route. It is a good idea to carry the most important tools for a quick fix, such as inner tubes or patches, a pump or a multi-tool. Make sure you have enough water and food, as well as navigation equipment.


Is it looking like a warm and sunny day? Remember sunscreen and sunglasses. If you are planning sightseeing or other activities along the route, a bike lock will also be very useful. Before you leave, carefully examine your route for the trip. Consider whether your skills and equipment are adequate for the level of difficulty of the route.

    Horyniec-Zdrój is the start of your cycling trip. What is worth knowing about this place? It is famous for its spa, which has the best mud resources in Poland. Jan III Sobieski was convinced of its therapeutic properties, while the mud deposits themselves were promoted by the Poniński family. The family left behind a palace here, which now serves as the "Bajka" sanatorium, a theatre, a manorial chapel, and a mausoleum. Horyniec-Zdrój itself only gained the status of a spa in 1976. 

    Being in the centre, from the car park on Mickiewicza Street, go to the underground passage, then turn into Sanatoryjna Street next to the Tourist Information building. Follow this street along the asphalt road, thus leaving Horyniec-Zdrój.
