Thanks for your kind words Elizabeth. We loved having yourself and Kathy on the Gdansk tour and hope you both rediscovered your Polish roots and heritage. You both took a million photos, always shared a smile, tackled the farm trails with your adventurous spirit, and had an interesting conversation with the ‘pumpkin’ lady! It was lovely to have you and we hope to see you again.
“When I told friends I was going cycling in Poland, everyone wondered how I would get my bicycle there and how I’d carry my baggage on my bike…..all misconceptions! With Cycling Poland, our hosts Neal and Polish native Agata provided all the equipment (a sturdy hybrid Trek with pannier bag for my day pack) and sag wagon service to make a carefree vacation ride through the lovely countryside. After getting our bikes early on the Sunday morning, we boarded the ferry to the Hel peninsula and began cycling along the bike path past beaches, dunes, and pine forests, through beach towns and up to one of my favorite accommodations – a real castle filled with history in a charming town. Each day of the trip we cycled along the most beautiful and well-chosen routes (loved those unpaved farm roads!), reached unique and always comfortable lodging, and enjoyed a special dining experience for our well-earned dinners. One of my favorite stops was our lunch in the Tzcew city square and bicycling out along the park and across the Vistula River.
Thank you to Neal for his good humor and care in making our trip enjoyable, and to his partner Agata who shared her knowledge of Poland’s history, culture, and nature over some inspiring dinner conversations. I traveled with another 50-something woman from the US, and we were totally comfortable with the cycling distances and just a bit of hill climbing (with some terrific downhills). I didn’t want the trip to end and definitely want to return for another Cycling Poland trip!”
