Brno to Valtice (35)
Gateway to Freedom - bikes in front.

We spent three days in the wonderful city Brno. On our first day we barely did anything. We were very tired from the stage on the day before. We only chilled at our apartment and took a little walk in the park around the corner. On the second day we first wanted to get something to repair our tent because…

Olomouc to Brno (34)
Caves in Sloup. Bats in there!

On our rest day in Olomouc it turned out that it was not the best idea to have some beers after a long and exhausting stage. So after breakfast we slept a bit more and started the day late. First we had to plan our tour. We weren’t that far from the Austrian border, so we did some research about…

Bikes in front of the Gymnázium Jana Opletala in Litovel.

After our first mountain stage the day before we decided not do too much on our rest day. It costed much energy to beat the ramps, so we slept very long and relaxed at our nice apartment. Hanušovice is a very small town, so there was not that much to do. In the evening we went to a local restaurant…

Welcome in different languages - nice rest place at the hotel.

The stage we did a day before was hard and costed a lot of energy. Also due to the two flat tires itH took a lot of time. So we decided to relax on our rest day and not to do that much. After breakfast we did some stuff at our notebooks. Later we had a Pierogis and Potatoe Pancakes…

Złoty Stok to Pokrzywna (31)
Flat tire number one...

After two tough stages on the days before, we decided that we needed a rest day. Our camping ground with some nice ponds was in a remote area surrounded by a lot of forest. Besides the orchestra of the frogs it was a quiet area. The owner was also very friendly and could even speak a few German words. So…

Sobótka to Złoty Stok (30)
Maybe very old hiking paths? Where to go? We don´t know...

After a noisy and rainy night we woke up pretty early. We decided to start with breakfast because the rain stopped and we wanted to give the tent some time to dry (did not work as rain started again...haha). Afterwards we packed our bags, put on our cycle clothes, and dissembled the tent. When we filled our bottles at the…

Wrocław to Sobótka (29)
Nice resting place at a playground along EuroVelo 9.

Our stay in Wrocław was a bit of a wild story. During this stay we took a two day trip back to Germany for a family party. Meanwhile our bicycles were parked at the house of Alex’s coworker (Thanks to Szymon and his family). In addition, Alex had problems with his bicycle after changing the chain. It took three bicycle…

Gostyń to Wrocław (28)
Definitely needed a rest - this "sklep" was like a miracel in the remote area.

We stayed only one night in Gostyń. Our stage to Wrocław would be more than 100km so we tried to start early. After breakfast at our hotel we got the bicycles ready. We wanted to continue the bicycle road R9 (Eurovelo 9) and the path led us to the Bazylika Świętogórska which was the first sight of the day. This…

Poznań to Gostyń (27)
Waiting for the train.

In Poznań we celebrated Alinas birthday. Therefore, we first did a little sightseeing tour and took a walk into the city. We came across some churches and passed the main station. After this we walked to the center and old town. A lot of people were around and there was also a little festival at one main square. In the…

Wągrowiec to Poznań (26)
Snack stop in the forest - good shelter for the coming rain.

Wągrowiec is the smallest town we have been so far in Poland. But still it had something to offer. So we took a walk around the area. Right behind the sport park led a path to a small lake. Not far from there was a little promenade where you could rent pedal boats. But we continued our tour to the…
