The trail is currently not realized, only the corridors where it is going to run have been charted. Some segments have been completed, but not yet interconnected. The actual cycling track is planned to be completed in the years 2017/2018. We encourage riding along its particular segments, even if they do not meet the signposting standards of the EuroVelo network applied in Western Europe yet. Please bear in mind, however, that high density of car traffic in summer months undermines the feeling of security of inexperienced cyclists on many roads. Many public transport hubs, even in large cities, are not cycling friendly either. In the future, the trail will pass from the Polish German border in Swinoujscie on the Uznam island to the Polish border with the Kaliningrad exclave of Russian Federation near Braniewo, passing through the cities of Międyzdroje, Kołobrzeg, Darłowo, Ustka, Łeba, Władysławowo, Hel and then it will reach the cities of Gdynia and/or Gdańsk by ferry tram. Lighthouses located along the coast of the Baltic Sea may prove to be attractive places to visit. The trail then follows the same trail as the ICT-EV13 to the Kaliningrad Exclave of the Russian Federation, with an option to ride via Krynica Morska on the Vistula Spit to take the ferry tram to Frombork. The trail, passing close to the golden beaches of the southern Baltic coast and adjacent areas is going to be an important segment of the Baltic Sea Cycle Trail. It will allow visitng great number of natural heritage sites such as the Slovinian National Park with moving dunes as well as historical remnants of various military installations located along the Baltic Sea Coast. In the central - eastern part the trail will pass through the cities of Gdynia, Sopot and Gdańsk rich in many historical monuments and inspiring sights. Then it will pass across the flatland of the Vistula river delta making it ideal cycling territory for those with children. Following the good example of other national coordinators of the EuroVelo trails, the PSWE is going to undertake the process of certification of accommodation and catering services in 2012 (such as bikeandbed) located along the trail in Poland. Organisation Name: Pomeranian Association ‘Common Europe’ (PSWE). PSWE is a grass root, project and process oriented, non-governmental organisation with the main aim of assisting local and regional government in the process of development of Pomerania, the most popular tourist region in Poland. In May 2008 the PSWE became the associate member of the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF), attaining the status of its full member in March 2011. In October 2011 the PSWE has been granted the status of EuroVelo trails coordinator in northern Poland, focusing its attention inter alia on the Iron Curtain Trail – EuroVelo Trail No.13 project funded by the DG ENV of the European Commission, as a lead partner for the northern section of the trail.
