SYBIRAK Cycle is an 8,000 km cycling expedition following the path of Polish citizens deported to labour camps across Siberia and Kazakhstan, and their journey to freedom. Our goal is to explore the geography, culture and history along the way using bicycles as vehicles for adventure, research and advocacy.

‘Sybirak’– A person imprisoned or exiled to Siberia, including those Polish citizens specifically sent to Siberia, Arctic Russia and Kazakhstan in the 1940s.  The expedition in 2015 marks the 75th anniversary of the mass deportations of 1940, and is inspired and dedicated to their journey.
