The day is spent on smaller roads mostly, fairly close to the seashore (for those in need of a short swim in between).
The last larger Polish town before the border to Germany is Swinoujscie, about 144 km into the ride. Navigation may be a bit tricky, some roads are closed for bicycles. In these cases there will be a bike trail either right next to it or very close nearby – we will have to look for them, and keep an eye on the track to not get too far away.
In practical terms it should not pose a serious problem.
The campground is close to the beach again, located outside of a small village, Loissin, on the mainland between the very busy islands of Usedom (which we pass on our way) and Rügen.
Initially, I had planned to end the day at Zinnowitz, but could not get a campground reserved for us.
1091 m of climbing today. The track for the day:
Lunch Rest Stop
For lunch I suggest to stop at Swinoujscie (Swinemünde), the last Polish city before the border, about 144 km into the ride. It should have plenty of places and you’ll have just another 60 km to the finish for the day.
