Who is the Adventure distance for?

The ADVENTURE (46 km) distance is a perfect option for those who are just setting out on their adventure with road cycling, but also for those who want to check how their body will react to ambitious riding for more than an hour, or for anyone who simply prefers short, specific racing. If that kind of racing is new for you, it’s a chance to find out how real racing feels. Although the ADVENTURE distance is quite a bit shorter in comparison to GranFondo or MedioFondo, that doesn’t mean a lower level of fun guaranteed when racing on the road. We offer unlimited access to the unique atmosphere of a classical road race during the only event held in Poland for amateur cyclists that is captured in the calendar of the International Cycling Union – we offer access to an event that is appreciated throughout the world!
