Our second instalment of Lithuanian mountain bikers came to visit Romania in September 2016, enjoying four days of summer-like weather and riding in the mountains near Brașov.

The Postavaru Mountain, The Piatra Craiului National Park and The Bucegi Natural Park have a few common traits. They are close to Brasov, surrounding an area filled with magic and charm: The Bran Country. They all have a wide network of superb trails, from deep forest to high alpine pastures, ideal for first class single track mountain biking.

But there is another thing, kind of obvious when you think of it, constantly neglected by our guests coming from “flat” countries. Postavaru, Piatra Craiului and Bucegi are mountains. That translates to steep inclines, long and difficult ascents and equally testing descents.

The five Lithuanians were facing the evidence of what mountain biking in the mountains was in the very first hours of the first day. Not an easy hurdle to pass over, but to their credit they adapted to the situation on the go, enjoying the experience more and more, by every passing day and mountain.

As with our first group of Lithuanian bikers, our guests left Romania as friends, in love with the uniquely beautiful Bran Country and with a refreshed meaning for “mountain biking”.

Hi all, it was a fantastic trip! It exceeded our expectations on every aspect: the trails are both demanding and thrilling; scenery is stunning; people nice and friendly. We did enjoy fast single tracks a lot, technical descends are very demanding but passable. We especially enjoyed single track in forest as well as long uphill climbs. Special thanks to Horia for his patience and passion for biking. He is surprisingly intelligent and got great biking skills plus is ready to share it with a group. We will definitely had a great time and will be back!
