Co-Founder & Guide
When Max moved to Kraków in Poland and started exploring the roads of Eastern Europe, he knew there was something special about the place.
Bored of riding the same lanes in the South of England, Max left London and began a new life in Kraków, discovering a region that not many people associated with road cycling.
Podia soon developed as a blog to capture his experiences of riding in places around Poland, Czech, Slovakia and Slovenia. Early on during these explorations a seed was planted that more people should know about the untapped cycling destinations Max was uncovering; that idea led to the creation of Podiaventures.
Since then Max is fully occupied with running Podia, which also includes regular rides in search of new Podiaventure locations. Max spends countless hours driving and riding the routes to make sure they offer the very best experience for our guests.
Thanks to Max, Podiaventures mean smooth roads, undisturbed views and good food stops on every ride. Max is one of the Guides during most of the trips, sharing his experiences of exploring lesser known cycling locations. Thanks to his passion of photography, guests leave Podiaventures with special sets of pictures to help them remember their amazing experiences.
