Exploring Lublin

This year, the cycling season began with a captivating visit to Lublin, an intriguing city known for its vibrant history and cultural depth.

Similar to the charm of Wrocław, Lublin boasts an array of small, whimsical statues scattered throughout the city.

Each statue tells a story, adding a layer of enchantment and discovery as I navigated the cobblestone streets.

This picturesque start to my journey not only rekindled my love for bike packing but also set a whimsical tone for the adventures ahead.

The Route Through the Forest

The trail from Lublin towards the Vistula river meandered into a lush forest, presenting a serene yet challenging route filled with rolling hills.

The freshness of the new season was palpable in the air, with each pedal stroke pushing me deeper into the heart of nature.

The forest canopy offered a sporadic glimpse of the sky, while the sounds of rustling leaves and distant wildlife accompanied my journey.

This part of the route, with its natural obstacles and scenic beauty, was both a test and a treat, providing a perfect blend of thrill and tranquility.

The night caught us, and not only. A flat tyre as well.

But we made it to the destination and this was waiting for us:
