The basis of the trip is the nearly 12-kilometer ring around Downtown and the Old Town. We start at Wolność Square, then we go along Żmigród and Królewska streets, then Lubartowska and Podzamcza streets. We traverse the valley of Czechówka and Bystrzyca, driving along the avenues: Tysiąclecia, Unii Lubelskiej, and Lubelskiego Lipca 1980, and along Muzyczna street. We get to know the areas around the Academic Campus and the Saski Garden. Finally, going along Krakowskie Przedmieście, we reach Litewski Square.
We get to know the basic historical atmosphere of the city – we reach the oldest monuments and discuss the changes that took place in the city’s landscape in the 20th century. At the same time, we are looking for accents that build the current climate – for example, new elements of downtown and non-downtown architecture and urban planning, bicycle transport solutions, current social and cultural events, a trail of local murals, and elements of alternative trends in urban life.
We also propose an extended option, which allows you to get to know other faces of the metropolis in more detail – we travel along additional routes, a few kilometers from the center of Lublin. Besides, an important feature of Bicycle Tours is flexibility and the so-called flanering. In addition to permanent and unchanging elements, part of the route can be run according to the tastes, needs, and individual interests of group members, including periodic and unusual tourist attractions. The guide, to the best of his abilities and knowledge, will modify the course of the walk.
For those who don’t have their bikes or in the case of a vehicle breakdown, the organizer provides the use of the Lublin City Bike system on preferential terms.
