About this route

A simple and pleasant scenic route through the countryside west of the capital of Podkarpackie.

Lovers of sacred architecture will find several places of interest, as will anthropologists, who will easily observe the changes in the environment caused by man. The route leads along asphalt roads and the total elevation is low, therefore, apart from the length, the ride is not a significant challenge even for intermediate cyclists. Circling through the villages and looking for the right exits may be a problem, but local residents will be happy to provide guidance.

    It is a large village, where a careful observer will see buildings dating back to the early 20th century. The most interesting is the Church of St. Francis of Assisi. To get to it, you have to ride a few hundred meters from the intersection to Zagorzyce, where you should turn. The church is not old, having been built in the mid-1930s, but it has an interesting architectural form. Its builder, architect Z. Mączeński, developed the style of the village church; wooden, neo-Gothic, strongly based on the local tradition of a sacral building with clear Byzantine and Uniate influences. Continue through fields and forests on the narrow road to Zagorzyce via Budzisz Zagórzański. In the village, turn left. By the neo-Baroque church, you will notice a Marian statue surrounded by poles with barbed wire. It commemorates the martyrdom of St. M. M. Kolbe in the Auschwitz concentration camp. After 800 m past the temple, turn right onto a narrow road by the Marian statue and drive through fields by the forest, through Przymiarki. Keep to the edge of the forest and turn north with it on the outskirts of the village of Broniszów. Go right past the Łączki Forestry Commission building. At the crossroads in Gnojnica Wola, keep left. You will then pass through Gnojnica and reach Góra Ropczycka. This section will be 7 km long.

    A very interesting site in the village is the ruins of barracks from the mid-19th century. They were built as late-classical barracks with neo-Gothic elements for the Krakus regiment. The present remains are closed to the public due to the condition of the buildings, but the eastern wing with a wall and a corner tower can be seen. A discerning eye will spot the subtle remains of the wall stucco. Turn right behind the parish church, heading southeast. You will reach Zagórzyce Dolne. To cross it, you will have to zig-zag; turn left at the first and second intersections, while at the end of the road, turn right into South Street and after 500m turn left. Then turn left again and after 80m turn right. After 1 km, you will turn left and then right after another 150 m. Continue straight on the main road; you will pass the stadium and the Golden Carp statue. At the school, head to the right, to turn left after 700m. Continue straight ahead, as you will only turn right before the stadium in Dąbrowa. Behind this facility, you will turn first left and then right. You will reach Trzciana. In Trzciana, head south through Słowinka. After Błędowa Zgłobieńska, at the bifurcation of roads, keep right and turn left at the first opportunity.
