Poland was a dream. Long, straight flat roads that were generally safe and easy to cycle on which meant that we clocked up the mileage easily – 52 miles in the first afternoon without even trying. I cycled with Newall Hunter across Poland from the border with Germany in the West (Slubice) to the border with Belarus in the East (Terespol), a total of 473 miles averaging 11.8 mph.
Unfortunately there was a huge storm on Day Two which felled 100,000’s trees and cycling after that was occasionally blocked
but when the storm was at it’s peak we were looked after by Kristoff, who took us into his house to dry off and shelter. Thank you to all the lovely Poles who looked after us en route!
