About this route

A challenging route with a large number of steep climbs and leading along narrow roads. However, it is very satisfying. In addition to the views stretching from the hills and elevations, you will find numerous architectural gems, both local and known in Poland and around the world. Military enthusiasts will come across several interesting places commemorating the battles of Polish soldiers in 1939, and those interested in ethnography will find an open-air museum and a historic peasant cottage. You can also recall the history of atrocities that took place in these areas, for which the Ulma Family Museum of Poles Saving Jews in World War II in Markowa is helpful.

Practical advices

When preparing for a route, be sure to check the weather forecast. This will allow you to take appropriate clothing and limit your luggage as much as possible. However, it is well known that the weather can be unpredictable, so be prepared if it gets worse. It is good practice to pack a thin rain jacket that does not take up much space.


Before starting the route, carefully analyse it on a map. Consider whether your skills and equipment are adequate for the level of difficulty of the route.


Download the accompanying .gpx file so that you always have your navigation at hand. To make sure your device doesn't fail you, also bring a power bank, charger or spare batteries. If the weather changes, you may find it useful to have a waterproof case for your electronic equipment.


Be sure to take drinks and food with you on long journeys; you never know when you will get hungry. Remember that a shop or restaurant may be located a long way away. We recommend that you stock up on water, isotonic drinks, energy bars and snacks. This will make sure you don't lose the motivation to continue riding.


The absolute basis for safety is, of course, a helmet. Also, prepare yourself technically. Make sure you have adequate lighting on your bike. Pack a repair kit. Spare inner tubes, a pump, a multitool, all of these things can come in handy in the event of a breakdown, which of course you don't want!

Łańcut – Sietesz – Husów – Łańcut

    0 km

    The starting point will be the town square. The spirit of old times has partially been preserved here, when trade took place and wealthy merchants built beautiful, Art Nouveau townhouses to emphasize their prestige. The most beautiful object by the square is the former officers' casino in the western part. Head towards it and turn into Sobieski Square, then turn left at the synagogue into 3 Maja Street. Next, ride along the castle fence, passing on your right the riding school (a building for horseback riding lessons), a hospital, and the palace stables. At the curve in the road, turn right into Kwiatowa Street, and then again right at the building of the Technical School Complex. You will exit onto national road no. 94 and turn left, to then take the second exit on the roundabout onto regional road no. 881. Following through the suburban village of Sonina, stick to this route. Beyond the village, you will come across a wind farm. Approaching the buildings of Markowa, turn right into Dworska Street. Riding along, you will pass an open-air museum and exit by the Ulma Family Museum of Poles Saving Jews in World War II. Both places are worth visiting, especially the museum, as it is an extremely modern facility with a clear moral message. Think about the shape of the museum and the symbolism of rust. Exit the museum area heading east. Turn right at the large intersection behind the fire station towards Kańczuga. You will enter a valley from which you will have to climb up to the village of Sietesz.

    At the curve in the road, turn right at the pharmacy, leaving regional road no. 881. You will know you are on the right track when you pass the Neo-Gothic church. Ride through this very long village and make a long descent to Siedleczka. Pass through the village on the main road, passing the church and school. At the end of Siedleczka, turn right onto regional road no. 835. This road will take you to Manasterz. It is worth visiting the Baroque Church of St. Catherine here. Past the church, at the old cemetery, turn right. A climb through a small forest lies ahead of you. Stick to the asphalt road and at the "X"-shaped intersection, go straight. The road in the forest will make a wide curve around the buildings of Nieważki, part of the village of Manasterz. In the valley, after the bridge over the Husówka, turn right. Then continue on the main road, following the course of the river. This way you will reach the locality from which this stream takes its name – to Husów.

    In the village, you will come across Jan Rak's cottage – a wooden, thatched-roof peasant home, typical for this area several decades ago. Keep going straight, passing the Grunwald monument and school. You will leave the village to the north and find a long descent into the valley. Look at the panorama that unfolds before you – beautiful valley, is it not? Without going deeper between the buildings, you will bypass Markowa in its western part and 3 km further you will reach Albigowa. At the old mill, where you can rest and have a bite to eat, turn right onto Mościckiego Street along regional road no. 877. Going northward on this road, you will reach Łańcut. You can stop at the military quarter of the municipal cemetery. Not only do Polish soldiers who fell here in defence of the town in September 1939 rest here, largely horse riflemen from Łańcut's 10th Regiment of Horse Riflemen with the 10th Cavalry Brigade of Colonel Maczek, but also interned Ukrainians from the years 1918-1919 and those who fell in other wars that rolled through the area. Then cross the national road no. 94, entering onto Mickiewicza Street. From this road, turn right onto Piłsudskiego Street, which will take you to the town centre.

    Your trip ends near the starting point. Maybe you will be tempted to visit the Castle or the Memorial Room of the 10th Regiment of Horse Riflemen? Nearby there is also a Jewish cemetery and a beautiful Baroque Catholic church. What do you think?
