Kasina Wielka is a quiet and charming location, which is perfect to retreat from reality and relax while biking. We welcome all bike lovers! Both beginners, families with children, as well as experienced amateurs can find exactly what they need. We guarantee sports people a good training as well. We have good facilities for cyclists such as an inn, hire shop, bike service centre, or cycling school. Kasina has its own cycling tradition. First trails were created here shortly after this sport was introduced to Poland.
The idea to create not yet the Bike Park but simply a cycling trail on the Śnieżnica mountain emerged in 2007. The initiators and also executors of the first line, the co-called Pucharówka, were the Wincenciak Brothers (Biotop), well-known in the DH community, and Niepołomice Cycling Society, which was disbanded some time ago. The then crazy plan was implemented in 2008. The line of around 1600 m ran partially through the middle woods and partially under the lift. The entire line was handmade and the only element created with the use of equipment was the landing of the final jump, where record-breakers made jumps of even 19 m! In June 2008 the Polish Cup preliminaries were organised there. The competition was really successful and the attendance was high (around 300 participants).
In further years, the line was renewed a few times with mixed results. The Bike Park came into existence in 2014. Its founder was Filip Janiszewski. Antidote Bike Park consisted of four lines: the old route of the Wincenciak Brothers called Antidote Race Line, Biotop Line, Jaws Sweet One and Funn Line. In 2015 on the Race Line the Polish Downhill Cup was organised. 2016 was ground breaking for the station (installation of a new Doppelmayr detachable chairlift and huge Bike Park investment).
At present, we are the largest facility of this type in Poland. We have nine paths of different profiles and difficulty levels. We have a state-of-the-art and fast chairlift, which will transport you and your bike to the summit in just 5 minutes!
