Bieganów [bjɛˈɡanuf] is a village in the administrative district of Gmina Cybinka, within Słubice County, Lubusz Voivodeship, in western Poland, close to the German border. It lies approximately 6 kilometres (4 mi) south-west of Cybinka, 24 km (15 mi) south-east of Słubice, 58 km (36 mi) north-west of Zielona Góra, and 72 km (45 mi) south-west of Gorzów Wielkopolski. It is located within the historic Lubusz Land. The village has a population of 500.


There are several archaeological sites from the Bronze Age, antiquity and the Middle Ages in the village. The area formed part of Poland since the establishment of the state in the 10th century. The territory was administratively located within the Lubusz castellany and the Catholic Diocese of Lubusz, both established in the early 12th century by Polish ruler Bolesław III Wrymouth. After Polish rule, the village was part of the Margraviate of Brandenburg and Bohemia (Czechia). Despite the annexation of the territory by Brandenburg, the area was still inhabited by Poles in the 17th century. From the 18th century, it was part of Prussia, and from 1871 to 1945 it was also part of Germany. After the defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II, in 1945, along with the right-bank Lubusz Land (portion situated east of the Oder River) the village became again part of Poland.


The Polish Cyclo-cross Championships were held in Bieganów in 1985, 1991 and 2014.
