  • I've only ever really ridden road in Poland (unless you count Accidental Gravel™) so I'm not much use to you I'm afraid. Anywhere down south though in the Beskidz towards the Tatras is gonna throw up some good stuff though - the small roads there are quite good fun and it was lovely weather the other week when we were there (my first visit in 5 years) . The traffic seems to have got a lot busier though so I'd avoid the bigger roads as connectors as they tend to lack shoulders, although the drivers are generally better than UK.

    Have a look through RWGPS or Komoot and it'll throw up stuff like this which might be a starting point:

  • Yeah I already found this gravel race in that direction­

  • Nice. Added that to my list :)

    We were mostly riding near Babia Góra. It's further NW from Zakopane.
    Last time I was there I was going a lot further south but the bikes weren't running that well and we lack spares and time to do any bigger rides.

  • Here's the route I ended up taking to Ljubljana

    A ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn as riding around the bay via Russia isn't an option now, lots of gravel roads through the Baltics, several natural parks, many of which are bogs, then mostly small paved roads and touring routes like Eurovelo in Poland to make quicker progress, over the mountains to Slovakia, through the heat in the Hungarian plains and bad bicycle infrastructure, finishing with the best part over the mountains from Austria to Slovenia, with some scenic gravel roads on top of them.
