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.

    Błędowa Tyczyńska

    After the Stary Dąb (Old Oak), a natural monument, and the church next to it, cross the crossroads and turn right into regional road no. 877, behind a small forest. Follow it to the building of the Błędowa Tyczyńska fire station, where you turn left. At the next junction, head south and at the bifurcation by the Chmielnik stream, turn sharp left. Then keep right. You will come to the ponds at Tarnawka and the St. Hubert chapel. Just past it, turn left and follow the road through the forest. After 3 km, turn right onto an asphalt road and follow it to the northern outskirts of the village of Tarnawka.

    Turn right onto the main road of the village. You can rest in a small park or further on, by the church in Albigowa. At the old mill, turn left towards Kraczkowa and Malawa.

Take the familiar route through Mieszka I Street to Niepodległości Avenue and Major Kopisto Avenue. Stop at the Zamkowy Bridge overlooking the Castle. It is a building younger than it seems, but with an interesting history as its roots go back to the 17th century. On the other side, you will notice a low, modernist structure. This is the Podpromie Hall, the training place of the Asseco Resovia Rzeszów volleyball team, one of the most successful in Poland. Note its architectural form, reminiscent of a tented sheet stretched and fixed to the ground by cables. Turn off the bridge into Kilara Street, then turn left into Podpromie and Hetmańska Streets.
