Giant Enduro Trails in Bielsko Biala (www.endurotrails.pl)

Couple years ago there was the first „Enduro Trails” race on „Kozia Góra” in Bielsko-Biała. Mostly because organizers designed and prepared new trails especially for the race, the event was very successful from the racing point of view as well as in promoting enduro as an active recreation. Since that time Enduro Trials designed and built more than 30 kilometers of single-tracks, not only challenging trails for the races, but also easier ones for amateurs and hobby bikers. Most of the trails are now available in local trail park (http://endurotrails.pl/sciezki/) and in surrounding mountain ranges of Silesian Beskid and Little Beskid (Beskid Śląski i Mały). In the resort there is also a gondola lift, trailcentre with rental bikes, restaurants, hotels and other facilities. Great location with big potential and pure enduro spirit.
