Climbing in Costa Blanca in Spain – multi-pitch routes

Sierra de Toix and Penon de Ifach are two 330-meter-high rocks located right by the sea between Alicante and Valencia. Recently, I had the opportunity to climb them on several-pitched routes. Read how it was and where else on the Costa Blanca you can do multi-pitch climbing. I write also about attaching the belay device wrong way and what to do to avoid making a mistake like me.

Warta Gravel 2021 – report from the race

Warta Gravel is a 400-kilometer long ultra-distance bicycle race in Wielkopolska (Greater Poland). My first competition and the first such long distance in one go. A varied route, nice landscapes, good weather and my good result made it a very successful two days :)

via ferrata vodni brana

Via ferratas close to Poland (Czechia and Germany)

Just 12 km from the border with Poland, you can have fun on the via ferrata, and during a 4-day trip, you can make a dozen or so of them. In the Czech Republic and Germany, near Lower Silesia, there are via ferratas of all levels of difficulty. They are often single, short ferratas, but anyway they offer great fun :)

By bike and on foot through Bohemian Switzerland

Recently, I had the pleasure of taking a great 4-day trip from Jelenia Góra in Poland to Zgorzelec (Görlitz), through the Bohemian Switzerland National Park. We rode with my friend 330 km and walked 23 km, enjoying beautiful views of interesting rock formations, pleasant bicycle trails and several great descents :)

Wrocław – Kołobrzeg by bicycle: day 6

The last 115 km to our destination we traveled along the Old Railway Trail, almost entirely on asphalt, without cars. In the evening, as planned, we got to Kołobrzeg and spent the entire next day relaxing by the sea :)

Wrocław – Kołobrzeg by bicycle: day 5

From Ińsko, where we spent the night, to Kołobrzeg there was only about 100 km the shortest way, but why take the shortest, when there are so many beautiful places along the way :) Therefore, on the fifth day, instead of going as far north as possible, we turned east to pass through Drawsko Landscape Park.

Wrocław – Kołobrzeg by bicycle: day 4

On that day, the weather did not encourage long bicycle trips. Transient but heavy rains, also with hail, appeared throughout the day, so we shortened the route from the planned 114 km to 96 km and rode almost all of it on the paved roads.

Wrocław – Kołobrzeg by bicycle: day 3

The route on the third day of the trip to Kołobrzeg assumed a ride through the Sieraków Landscape Park and the Noteć Forest. The distance was not long – about 100 km, but a large part of the route led along dirt and gravel roads. There were also a lot of small climbs and descents.
