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.

    Is there a better starting and orientation point than the town square? Dębica existed as early as the 14th century as a town on the Krakow-Lviv route. From its 1372 charter, the layout of the town remains, very typical – with a square-shaped market and a church situated outside its bounds. Exit the square via Krakowska Street towards the Church of Our Lady of the Angels at the roundabout named after Fr. Leśniowski. Turn right onto Koehlich Street, and then follow Piaski Street to take the 3rd exit at Świerada roundabout onto Kraszewskiego Street. This will lead you to Staszica Street, where you should turn left. After passing the park, turn right and go under the railway tracks. About 300 metres after the bridge over Wisłoka, turn left. Going upstream, you will reach another bridge – a large, double-track one. Beyond it, stay on the asphalt road, which ends after nearly a kilometre. Turn left and ride along Zalew Rędziński. You will pass through a group of buildings and notice a junction – here, turn sharply to the left. Ahead of you are 4 kilometres of peaceful riding through a plain with scattered rural buildings. When you reach Chotowa, maintain your direction until you come to an intersection where, after yielding, you should turn left. You will delve into the forest, from which you will emerge in Lipiny. Further on, through scattered farms, groves, and fields, you will arrive at the outskirts of Pilzno.

    Turn left onto Paderewskiego Street and then onto Wiaduktowa Street to go under the overpass of national road no. 94. Turn left onto this road and, after almost a kilometre, exit to the right after the bridge over Wisłoka. You will pass a large logistics centre and arrive at the village of Dobrków. At the fork on the bend in the road, veer left, choosing the uphill route rather than the gentle descent. After passing a dozen or so houses, you will enter a forest and encounter a monument to the Home Army. The forest will stretch for 5 km, interrupted briefly by Połomia situated in a clearing. Continue straight through the next cluster of buildings and move along or just behind the edge of the forest. In this way, you will arrive at Głobikowa. A point of interest here is the dinosaur park and the observation tower. It is worth taking a short break there. At crossroads, keep to the left side of the road. When you reach a T-junction, go left. Do not miss the opportunity to admire the magnificent panorama of the valley in front of you. Another stretch of 2.5 km through the forest awaits you. At its end, on the left side of the road, you will find an early medieval stronghold. At the fork, turn left again. The next 2 km through the forest will lead you to Stasiówka. Go through the village along the main road, with a forest complex on your left. As you pass a sign pointing to a church, school, and firehouse, turn in the opposite direction onto a forest track. For 2.2 km, stick to the wider road, then 600 metres from the edge of the forest, make a sharp right turn. The final kilometre through the forest will end on the outskirts of Dębica. Take Tetmajera Street to reach national road no. 94. Cross it, and along Gawrzyłowska Street, then Strażacka Street, head towards the intersection with Rzeszowska Street. Turn left into it. After 100 metres, you will be back at the market square in Dębica.
