About this route

The starting and finishing point of the loop is the Bikers Service Area (MOR) in Jarocin. This is not without reason - the whole route follows well-known and well-liked cycle routes, including the East of Poland Cycling Trail Green Velo. However, you will ride most of the trip along a different route, which is the Historic Cycling Trail of the Jarocin Commune. Along the way, you will encounter attractions that will allow you to learn more about the history and story of the region, and rest in designated places.

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.
