salinella, san vito

Climbing on Sicily: San Vito Lo Capo

Lovely place! The location of the rocks by the sea is one of San Vito’s greatest assets. Plus a lot of routes on the five-six level. One week was definitely not enough!

nove mesto nad metuji

Climbing in Czechia: Nové Město nad Metují

I haven’t climbed on something like this yet! The rocks in Nové Město nad Metují, although not very diverse, are also different from Jura, Sokoliki and any other climbing area I have seen. In addition, the pleasant location by the river and the lack of crowds make this area a very nice change from other climbing regions.

bike park leogang

Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Leogang, Fieberbrunn – Austria’s bike parks

Saalbach, Hinterglemm, Leogang and Fieberbrunn are towns between Salzburg and Innsbruck, promoted as the Austria’s largest bike region. I spent a week there in July this year and there is indeed a lot to do there, although under the slogan “largest in Austria”, I expected it to be even bigger.

slotwiny bike park

Bike parks on hardtail – spot 2: Słotwiny Arena (Krynica-Zdrój)

One of the best spots I have had the pleasure to visit. Smaller and larger tabletops on smoothed routes give the opportunity to fly both less and more experienced and provide great fun also on a hardtail.

bike park dolni morava

Bike parks on hardtail – spot 1: Dolni Morava

Bike Park in Dolni Morava in the Czech Republic is one of those places where you can have a great fun on a hardtail MTB bike. Several kilometers of routes, big berms and lots of tabletops. I liked it!

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.

costa blanca

Climbing in Costa Blanca in Spain – sport routes

I’ve recently spent 1.5 weeks climbing the Costa Blanca. During this time, we visited several climbing regions – Gandia, Bellus, Sella, Guadalest, Cabeçó d’Or, Sierra de Toix and Peñón de Ifach.

warta gravel

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 :)

czeska szwajcaria

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 :)
