A ride in the country

It's easy to cycle into the deep countryside from Jeziorki; a network of minor roads and paths takes you south into areas untouched by suburbia. New atmospheres can be felt, entirely rural, landscapes that could almost past muster as late 19th century. Today, Eddie and I cycled some 20 miles (30 km) from home to a place called Czachówek, a village once famous for its four railway stations, where two main lines cross. Today, only two remain, on the north-south line from Warsaw to Radom. Passenger services on the east-west line ceased some years ago.
