Easy bike trails around Jelenia Góra
Start from Jelenia Góra and head east toward Wojanów by Łomnicka street. When you exit the city the road becomes less and less crowded.
On your way you will pass old palaces and castles. Stop for a cake at Łomnica and check palace Boberstein which is permamentely under reconstruction.
And if you feel like you want to spice things up a little you can extend your trip and visit a brewery in Miedzianka. The ride is more than exhausting as it is located at the top of the hill. But the cold beer and the view from the top is more than rewarding.
