Practical advices

Although this route is not demanding, it is worth preparing for it properly, so that nothing surprises you at any point. Start with the most important thing, which is your helmet. A good helmet is essential for your safety. Take care also of proper lighting, both front and rear. In addition to bike lights, equip your bike with reflectors so that you are highly visible on the road.


What else is worth taking with you on a trip? Make sure to pack a sweatshirt or a rail jacket in your backpack, in case the weather changes. It is also a good idea to bring snacks to give you energy during the trip. Protein bars or energy mousses work well.


If you plan to take visit the attractions along the route, you will need to leave your bike behind in some places. To make sure it is still there after the tour, be sure to bring a bike safety device such as a U-Lock or any bicycle lock.

Route details

Dębica – Stobierna – Dębica


  • 1
    0 km

    Stand in front of the railway station in Dębica, with your back to the building. At the roundabout, choose the third exit, onto Głowackiego Street. When you reach Kościuszki Street, turn right. You will pass Solidarności Square and Mikołajkowów Square, commemorating a couple who saved a Jewish family during World War II. Continue straight on Strażacka Street, at the Ożoga roundabout turn left, and at the Honorowych Dawców Krwi roundabout onto Wielopolska Street. Follow it also at the Mickiewicz roundabout (first exit). This road will lead you to the suburbs, towards national road no. 94. Stick to Wielopolska Street, crossing straight at the ppor. Kloc roundabout. On your way south, you will pass the communal cemetery and enter the forest. Follow the main road for about 2 kilometres to reach Stasiówka. Stick to the priority road, and then you will pass a Neo-Gothic chapel on the left side of the road. At the intersection 700 metres further, between a roadside cross, a bus stop, and an end-of-village sign, turn left. Stick to this road, which leads through scattered buildings of Stasiówka in a north-east direction. After the village, you will enter the forest again, beyond which lies Stobierna.

    At the first intersection after the forest, turn left. You will arrive at the Slavic Settlement. It is a small open-air museum in the form of a fortified site with a palisade, inside which the life of early medieval Slavic inhabitants is recreated, including in weaving, blacksmith, and pottery workshops, where workshops for adults and children are offered. This is not the only attraction in Stobierna, which also has an insect and arachnid park and a ski lift. The insect and arachnid park features a significant number of models of these creatures, enlarged to human size. It is educational on one hand, presenting the anatomical details of their structure, and terrifying on the other, like being on the set of the movie "Starship Troopers". At the primary school, turn right and go straight ahead. After a small wooded area, you will come to the village of Bobrek, and further on to Zawada. There, you can see a seventeenth-century church, expanded at the end of the 20th century with stairs, a porch shaded by a colonnade, and a tower. It holds the status of a sanctuary. Continue on and you will reach the national road no. 94, where you should turn left and then right, following the signpost to Pustynia. By the way - you are just passing a castle park with a castle. The oldest stones were laid here in the 16th century, and the Neo-Gothic renovations were carried out in the 19th century. Its current form with a single tower is the result of damage from 1914. Next to it, during the interwar period, a mansion-villa was built, an exact replica of the residence of Rhodes Smith, the discoverer of diamond deposits in Rhodesia and South Africa. Having turned towards Pustynia, head north, crossing over the railway tracks. You will make two left turns here - at the roundabout and immediately after it. Going straight, you will cross the railway line – 300 metres further, turn left again onto regional road no. 985, and then right onto Sandomierska Street. Move along the railway tracks, entering Mościckiego Street. Continue on the main road, which turns right at the industrial buildings. Pass through the intersection and go on Kosynierów Racławickich Street, which marks the northern border of Dębica. On the oval roundabout, choose the fourth exit onto Kościuszki Street. Passing the city hall, remember that behind it lies the Regional Museum with diverse collections - from wooden rural spoons to jet planes. After the railway viaduct, turn right onto Głowackiego Street, which will lead you to the station.
