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.

    In this village, visit the former 19th-century tserkva of the Nativity of the Mother of God. The church is picturesquely situated in a bend of the Stubienka. The wooden building dates from 1849. Until World War II, it served Greek Catholics. After the displacement of the Ukrainian population, it was not used. It has only been used as a Roman Catholic church since 1971. 

    Next to the church is a wooden 19th-century bell tower.

    From here, continue along the asphalt road towards the A4 motorway. Cross over it via an overpass, then take the first asphalt road to the right. Go through the village of Nienowice, take the second exit at a small roundabout and continue straight ahead. A narrow asphalt road will lead you through fields of sunflowers (in summer) to Duńkowice.
