A suggested, up-to-date proposal for a ride along the Velo Dunajec route (240 km), which follows all the already asphalted/finished sections and which detours on local roads (in places, unfortunately, with heavy traffic/crossings) those sections that are still being built or are only in conception/plans.

This is a suggested tour for those who already want to see what has been built as part of the Velo Dunajec route from Zakopane to Wietrzychowice (where it connects to the Vistula Cycling Route). Most of this route is even suitable for road bikes, except for the section through the Slovakian part of the Pienińska Road through the Dunajec Gorge, which we recommend going around Leśnica and Wielki Lipnik to the Red Monastery. On the rest of the route there is asphalt/hardpack under the wheels, because the gravel surface is only in Zgłobice (200 m) and in Biały Dunajec (800 m). It is of medium difficulty because of the diversions sections that run on roads with heavy traffic/overpasses. 47% of the trail runs on roads separated from car traffic. Notes on the route: There are several short but steep climbs (Falsztyn, Brzyna, Dąbrowa, Rożnów, Habalina) and a few gravel and dirt sections: • (800 m) compacted dirt road in Biały Dunajec  • (10 km) The Slovak part of the Pieniny Road through the Dunajec Gorge, which can be travelled on asphalt through Leśnica and Wielkie Lipnik to the Red Monastery, uphill and downhill to the beautiful scenic pass • (200 m) gravel section of the drive up to Habalina • (3 km ) dirt road Szczepanowice- Zgłobice. The trail goes around the standard roads of the following sections that remain under construction or are only in conception/plans: • Krościenko-Tylmanowa (4.5 km) • Tylmanowa-Zabrzeż (2.5 km) • Gołkowice-Mostki (1.5 km) • Wielogłowy-Piaski Dróżków (30 km) • Wróblowice-Ostrów (25 km). The maximum altitude is: 836 m a.s.l. The lowest point on the route is at 176 m a.s.l. The route runs through the following protected areas: Landscape Parks: Ciężkowicko - Rożnowski Landscape Park National Parks: Pieniński PN Natura 2000: Białka Valley, Podkowce in Szczawnica, Niedzica, Dolny Dunajec, Górny Dunajec, Środkowy Dunajec with its tributaries, Orawsko-Nowotarskie Bogs, the Pieniny Mountain. 16% of the route runs through the forest.
