It supposed to be a beautiful weekend. Forecast said that it will be 18C (64F) and sunny! Perfect weather to enjoy on a motorcycle ‘Polish Golden Autumn’ in Bieszczady Mountains. Unfortunately fate was playing tricks on me, because one week before departure came cold front and instead of sunshine in the south of Poland we were waiting for snow. It’s supposed to be first meeting organized by me for Triumph Fans as part of the series called #TriumphAdventureClub. But it seemed that we will have to select snowmobiles instead of motorcycles due the weather. Most people who wanted to participate in the meeting got cold or was afraid that their will get it as soon as they jump on the bike in this ‘lovely’ weather. Only few people didn’t gave up and they were regularly checking the forecast, hoping that the weather will stabilizes… and it will be snowing but only at the arctic circle – not in Poland! I get used to such a fickle weather in Iceland. In a country where no one asks: “is it gonna rain?”, but only “when it’s gonna rain”?
Thankfully I heard from a few brave souls that if there won’t be a ‘white road’ they will come. I wasn’t sure if I would meet anybody at the hotel on Friday… but to my surprise few badasses came! We spent togheter great evening telling motorcycle stories. On Saturday at 10 everybody were sitting on their bikes ready to ride on and experience new adventure. I planned 250 km route for participants. I wanted to show them Bieszczady from a little diffrent perspective and I think I passed a test because the was s cheerful atmosphere. After few hairpins, I saw behind me in the motorcycle mirror only smiling faces. Riding through narrow roads, crossing the hills, we were riding along the San river. Leaning to the left and to the right, riding through winding roads. The colors of the trees that surrounded us, were hypnotising. Only view of snow-capped peaks arouse us from this blissful dream. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end… it was hard to part on Sunday. But I was happy because everybody were asking: “when’s the next trip?” so probably we will meet soon on the road!
Iwona, Paweł, Dariusz & Marek thank you for coming and creating great atmosphere! I promise I’ll organize few more trips to show you some cool neck of the woods in Poland !
