Lesser Poland is building Poland's largest cycling network in a region. Thanks to this network, cyclists will be able to use almost 1000 kilometers of well-marked cycle paths, connecting most of the region's interesting tourist spots and natural beauty. This project is not yet completely finished, but it is already possible for cycling enthusiasts to cycle hundreds of kilometers on cycle paths of the highest European standard.
The entire project will ultimately have 8 cycle routes:
- Wiślana Trasa Rowerowa – WTR - Wiślana Cycle Route (Vistula Cycle Route)
Velo Metropolis (part of the Euro Velo 4 route passing through Lesser Poland)
Velo Natura (part of the Euro Velo 11 route passing through Lesser Poland)
