The region of Lower Silesia is one of renowned beauty. This tour begins and ends in Wroclaw, the region’s capital. Wroclaw is replete with Gothic churches, Flemish style Renaissance mansions, Viennese Baroque palaces & chapels, tranquil parks, gardens, & rivers, and a vibrant cultural scene which enjoys world renown.
Outside of Wroclaw you enter the regions playground. The gently rolling landscape that we travel through is full of ponds, lakes, rivers, open farmlands, dense forests, rugged mountains, and a multitude of unspoiled villages. Plus there are architectural highlights such as the UNESCO listed 12th century Cistercian Abbey of Lubiaz, the UNESCO listed Churches of Peace in Jawor and Swidnica, and the magnificently restored 13th Century Castle Ksiaz (where we stay a night). The cycling is absolutely superb, the landscape is stunning, and the architecture is of ‘outstanding universal value’.
Our road cycling holidays are designed to provide you with the very best cycling, tourist attractions, and local cuisine. You will ride your bike from village to village and town to town while enjoying the diverse landscapes, sun dappled forest paths, meandering rivers, traditional foods, comfortable lodgings, and the very best in Polish hospitality. Along the daily route your guides ride along with you (taking on the role of mechanic if needed), while all your luggage is transported from origin to destination by vehicle – which can transport your snacks and refreshments and a comfortable seat if you want to put your riding feet up for a while
