What a fantastic week! The sun was shining in Southern Poland and Northern Slovakia, the roads were quiet, and the food, as always in this region… plentiful! This was our first official cycling holiday as we look to add to our already popular skiing holidays in Zakopane. A small group of cyclists from the UK who organise the yearly charity event, The Humber Bridge Sportive, took to the saddle to experience the scenery, and enjoy Zakopane and the surrounding areas.
During the week, our group cycled 300 miles and climbed around 23,000ft, including several ascents of climbs that are a regular feature in the tour of Poland. With a different route each day, and very little traffic on the roads, the week proved a huge success and marks the start of many more trips to come!
What a perfect way to wrap up the summer before focusing our attention on ski and snowboard holidays.
