Thousands Of Cyclists To Take Part In Wrocław’s ‘Great Peleton’

Sunday's event forms the centrepiece of Wrocław Cycle Fest

Thousands of cyclists will take to Wrocław's streets on Sunday for the 10th edition of Wrocław Cycle Fest

The biggest non-sporting bike event in the region, Wrocław Cycle Fest aims to promote cycling as a great mode of transport. 

The centerpiece of the bike-themed day is the 'Great Peleton', which takes place at 12:00pm at pl.Nowy Targ. In recent years anything between 2,000-4,000 people have peddled through the streets on their bikes to take part in the peleton. 

The 8km peleton route sees cyclists navigating the city centre before finishing up in Nadodrze's Park Stanisława Tołpy, where a great picnic is planned:

The Bike Picnic is a nice way to spend Sunday afternoon together. Like every year, we'll have give-away contests, a free Dr Bike workshop, competitions for adults and kids, delicious food and numerous bike stalls. Wroclaw Cycle Fest unifies cycling communities – mountain bikers, urban bikers, BMX bikers, recumbent bikers and handbikers.
