Our friends at Two Wheeled Travel, Carolyn Bys and Tyler Robertson, currently live in Warsaw, Poland and wanted to remind us that bicycling infrastructure reaches well beyond the Iron Curtain. They have been traveling by bicycle not only in Western Europe, but also Poland and the Czech Republic, taking spectacular photos of infrastructure as they go.
This isn't a story of kindness while bicycling, but it is a story that takes place in the midst of travel and my actions were based on recollections of how bicycle travelers have been treated by strangers.
