Marcin Surowiec is a so-called bushcraft expert — a true survival expert who cannot turn down any gritty outdoor adventure. He is also a mountain biker with a passion for ultramarathons. He first set eyes on the Pieniny Mountains on the border between Poland and Slovakia when he took part in the Carpatia Divide-Ultramarathon — a 372 mile (600 km) non-stop and unsupported solo adventure through the Carpathians Mountains. Faced with the relentless pressure of the race, he could not enjoy the views that passed him by so he decided to return one day to explore the region at a slower pace. This Collection showcases his return to the region – a wonderful bikepacking adventure. Thanks to e-MTB bikes, all bikers can master this ride regardless of how much experience they have in the great outdoors.
Sounds like your thing? Then pack your tent and provisions and spend the night in the wonderful nature. You are sure to have an unforgettable experience — no matter how you approach it.
