Pat, Ryan and Martin came to Romania late May for a medium mtb-tour in the Bran County. The rainiest spring we had in many years didn’t provide the best of premisses – there was water and there was mud everywhere. The kind of weather that isn’t really inviting you to get out, on your bike and ride.
But once you’ve got over that hateful first minute, you realize that some wet dirt cannot and should not stop you from having a great time. With plenty experience of riding in the rain, the three boys from Amsterdam and London marched on with a smile on their faces, thoroughly enjoying the Transylvanian trails. Some unexpected sliding, some unwanted sand in between the teeth, but great riding nonetheless. Top it up with a warm shower, a warm meal and a warm bed at the end of the day and you’ll realize there isn’t much needed to make someone happy.
Sometimes we get too picky – I won’t go out today, it’s looking a little bit cloudy and I don’t want to risk a wash out. Nonsense! Get out and ride! Thanks Ryan, Pat and Martin for a great time out in the great, wet outdoors!
