I got to Czestochowa just after noon. I left the norka at 7:30. It was not an easy ride, but it was fun. The sand got to me, but the cycling path in the first photo below was the fresh cream with wild sour cherry on top: just awesome.
If the trails were mostly like this, this entire trail would be bustling with people, maybe even some bicycle traffic jams. I’m still happy from that route, despite later having to traverse miles of sand that one can barely walk through not to mention riding: that would be impossible without a fat bike. It might be easier to ride on the beach instead of on some of these roads.
One of the sandy trails below, but the beautiful forest made up for it. You can’t see it in the photo, but the trees, the smell and light were lovely. Even if the road was great, I think, it would be worth walking here just to soak up all the good stuff.
This is castle one and the last one. It was the only one I saw. I did walk around it. The views were quite charming and the weather as you can see rather nice.
That little dot on the pole, below, marks the end of the start, if your going from here to Krakow, of the trail. Nothing glamorous, quite the opposite, but it need not be anything else. The deed is done.
Of course, I failed to take a photo of the huge brunch I had and could have had two of. Even the two mojitos failed to get into a photo.
By the way, I think the Mojito will be a drink I’ll have more often.
It’s 13;47 and my train back to Krakow leaves just after 17:00.
It was a great ride.
Now for some rest before the 7 days or riding in the Alps.
