It would be ideal to make a pit stop at Hajnówka's Biaowieza Forest Regional Tourist Office (3 Maja 45, Hajnówka; tel. 85/682-43-81; www.powiat.hajnowka.pl). They are open year-round Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm and Saturday from 9am to 2pm. The information stock here is extensive, covering attractions such as the Orthodox churches in the area. And they hand out good maps with cycling routes, which you don't get for free in Biaowieza. The PTTK tourist agency (Kolejowa 17; tel. 85/681-22-95; www.pttk.bialowieza.pl) in Biaowieza is good for hiring guides and arranging for bikes, rickshaws, and horse-drawn carts. In July and August, it's open daily 8am to 6pm; off-season, daily 8am to 4pm.
