Jasna Adventures has added to its summer holiday programme with a guided road cycling holiday that will follow the final two stages of the Tour de Pologne (TdP – Tour of Poland), a UCI World Tour event running 3-9 August 2019 that has featured Team Sky and top Brit riders such as Simon Yates.
The four-night holiday from 6 – 10 August 2019 features three days of guided and supported road riding, with accommodation, breakfast, daily snacks, on-road support and all transfers included. The holiday is based at Jasna Adventures own ski chalet, plus two nights on the road in Poland.
The first day features a challenging start from the chalet with a journey of 88km, climbing over 1000m, to reach Zakopane, Poland, which is where the final two stages of the TdP are held.
The final two stages of the TdP are mountain stages with loop courses, which will be ridden before the peloton passes through ahead of finding a prime position to watch the pro-riders battling the same climbs. And as a special event, the guided ride prior to the final Friday stage is an official amateur race conducted by the TdP organisers on the closed stage course, in which prizes (and bragging rights) are on offer.
Co-founder of Jasna Adventures, Justin Garrett, said:
This holiday offers British cyclists a chance to ride in Europe and experience world class courses and watch top pro riders without having to break the budget. A shorter holiday but with all the usual support and comforts, plus top quality riding is a much more affordable experience in this part of the world. It provides a good opportunity for those riders wanting to try a European cycling holiday but don’t want to commit to a full week or spending well over £500 doing so.
