About this route

Short, easy and enjoyable. These three words can be used to describe this route. You will start your adventure from Dubiecko. The easiest way to get there will be by car, which you can leave at a large car park on Słowackiego Street. Even before hopping on your bike, it is worth visiting the Kresowy Dom Sztuki (Borderland Art House). If you deviate slightly from the route, you will also reach the castle in Dubiecko. Although the route is classed as easy, it also has its challenges. The most difficult is the stage after leaving Słonne. The asphalt road then changes into a dirt road, and with unfavourable weather conditions, it can be difficult to traverse. On the route, there is no shortage of places that reward the effort put into driving, as the views you can enjoy during the trip are breathtaking.

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.
