Stolen boulders needed by social workers to expand the bicycle route in the town of Barycz in the Pabianice poviat were found. After the article on the tvn24.pl portal, a farmer from a neighboring village came to the district police in Dobroń and admitted that he had taken the stones.
As reported the theft of four huge stones probably took place on Tuesday (5 July) in the town of Barycz near Pabianice. Marta Stradomska from the XC Rokitnica route said yesterday (11 July) in an interview with the tvn24.pl journalist that the stones were donated by a “good-hearted” person who wanted to expand the bicycle route. – The stones were lying on the forest road in Barycz, they were given to us for the extension of the route, one of them weighed over two tons. The boulders probably died on Tuesday, because someone told us that they were still lying on Monday morning – said the social activist. And she added that bringing them to the place was not easy at all. – To bring them, you needed a car with HDS (hydraulic crane – ed.). After the traces remained on the spot, it was probably someone who came with a tractor with a turk (front loader – ed.) And stole them in this way – Marta Stradomska told us.
Stones needed to build a professional route
– We are building a route, which in our imagination is to be a professional route, at the level of the Polish Cup competition. These stones were to be another very attractive obstacle for people who train mountain biking. Our local community and people with achievements could train here, improve their competences – explained Stradomska. She added: – The stones were of great value to us as social activists and MTB cyclists. The lack of these stones means that we will not be able to build these attractions.
After yesterday’s article on the tvn24.pl portal, a farmer contacted the district police in Dobroń and admitted that he had taken the stones.
After this information, thanks to our journalist, wrote the administrator of the tour – Marta Stradomska. – Thanks for your help. A farmer from a nearby village came to us and he took the stones, believing that they had been left by the forest inspectorate after logging. We hope that the stones will soon return to the right place in the forest – wrote the activist
The stones were probably stolen on Tuesday 5th July
