Cycling: Zgorzelec to Kraków 6th Aug – 22th Aug

My Route (varies, it is just an idea):
Along the Sudety Mountains/Beskids: Zgorzelec, Leśna, Jelenia Góra, Wałbrzych, Świdnica, Nowa Ruda, Kłodzko, Nysa, Bielsko-Biała, Kraków (maybe Zakopane, Nowy Targ)
My Idea:
I want to see as much as I can and to a lot of pictures, talk to people, enjoy nature, cycle without having stress or obligations and I want to improve my Polish ;o)
Everything I need is carried on the bike (tent, clothes, cooker, sleepingbag…).
Outside the big cities I will sleep in my tent. I love to camp “freestyle” that means not always at a campingplace – if there is a nice place I will ask the owner (mostly farmers) if I can camp there for one night. I want avoid to camp totally wild (because you can get problems) but in case of emergency there is no other way.
Inside the cities I will do couchsurfing/warmshowers(ing).

If you are interested to cycle with me a part,
meet me somewhere heaving a drink,
offer a couch/shower along the route,
giving insider tips about something I have must seen or done,
or other tips

don’t hesitate to contact me: reanswer this post, leave me a private message or send a message to [email protected]

Greetings from Cologne, enjoy your summer…

Your route

Hi Isabell,

Your route is really scenic and hilly! Recommend that you pack as light as possible as you will be in the hills 90% of the time. You should get a youth hostel card in Germany as there are a lot of hostelling opportunities. Just look up Szkolne Schronisko Młodzieżowe and the name of the city, you’ll most likely find something. For example in Swidnica, , a real nice city by the way. Also the agro tourism movement is very strong in Poland and there are a lot of accommodations in the area you are visiting. With a bit of planning, you really won’t have to camp at all. Not carrying a tent and camping gear would really make the hills a bit easier. Plus you will meet a lot of different people. I know that there are a lot of people who sing the praises of stealth camping, myself, I don’t want to be awaken by an irate forest ranger or farmer! Plus a shower and company is nice at the end of the day.

Have a fun and safe trip!

Hey Robert, thankt you so

Hey Robert,
thankt you so much for your helpfull mail! And very sorry for my late answer. I am quite busy at the moment. The idea with the hostelcard was really good, and makes it much cheaper to stay somewhere. Thanks for that!

Have a nice day,

Here is a link to a map of hostels, not all of them are on the map as there is a real nice hostel near my village, 5 km from Oborniki Slaskie that doesn't appear here. Even if they all are not listed, there are several in your general direction.

I've enjoyed the hosteling experience. A great place to practice proto-Polish!
