Dear Ladies and Gentlemen! Dear cycling enthusiasts!
On behalf of myself and Self-government of the Małopolska Region, I would like to cordially welcome all participants of the 59th Małopolska Mountain Race to Małopolska Region. With great appreciation, I would like to thank Małopolska Cycling Federation and everyone who contributed to the organization of one of the most difficult cycling events in Poland.
Cycling is one of the most popular forms of physical activity in our region. This is because the Małopolska Region proves that it is a perfect place for cycling tourism. This is where – absolutely pioneering and unique in Poland – the project of building VeloMałopolska bicycle routes is being implemented. The region already offers over 800 km of routes adapted to everyone, regardless of physical condition. In addition, there are kilometers of bicycle routes of various levels of difficulty and a dynamically developing bicycle infrastructure. Sports emotions are also provided by events that have become a permanent feature of the Małopolska Region’s calendar: Family Bicycle Rallies, Małopolska Joy Ride Festival and Małopolska MTB Film Festival.
Therefore, I am glad that this year’s Małopolska Mountain Race will be inaugurated with the prologue in Kraków on June 3rd. I believe that despite the pandemic, competition among the great international cycling teams will be fierce. I wish all competitiors a safe route and the best results!
With sports greetings,
Marshal of the Małopolska Region
