Cross-Country & freeride in Bucegi

Finally a sunny week-end in Braşov, after three weeks of snowing like in the good old days. We celebrated it up in the Bucegi mountains, for some cross-country and free ride skiing. A happy bunch of nine skiers, four from Braşov and other five coming from Bucharest, all eager to fully enjoy the fresh powder… Read more »

2011 Xmas video postcard

It was a good year for mountain biking in Romania, we enjoyed every minute of it. We also filmed some of them – grab your headphones, pump up the volume and hit play. It’s not going to feel like you’ve been there (even if… you where), but it will be close. This film won the… Read more »

Single trails in Postăvaru Mountain, Braşov

Mtbtours.ro comes now with a small design face-lift and we are launching it with this new video of the single trails in Postavaru Mountain, on the outskirts of Brasov.

Ciucaş mountain trails

One of the best mountain biking tours we did this year was in the Ciucaş Mountains. We tried cycling there about ten years ago, at the beginning of our mountain biking experiences, but we ended up disappointed: too much push/carry bike for a little bit of pedaling. More recently, a friend of ours tried his… Read more »

High up the Bucegi Mountains

Bucegi Plateau, Omu Peak, Drumul Granicerilor, Padina, Strunga Ridge and then a descent to Simon. For a long time I have been planning this trip and I had lost all hope of doing it this year, since we had a mostly cold and rainy summer. But the weather was on our side this time, and… Read more »

Photos from Cetatea Braşovului Duathlon

Today I was a photo-witness at the Cetatea Braşovului Duathlon. All the photos where taken on a descent section, just after Poiana Stechil – therefore only the participants to the pro race are featuring. The mountainbiking part of the duathlon is really tough, some say it is the most difficult racing trail in Romania. It… Read more »

Training for Iron Bike Oradea 2011

“Must have been tough on that bike, wouldn’t it have been better had I given you a scythe to help me?” The man was sharpening his scythe in a field on the outskirts of the Magura village, near the cart road that goes up from Moeciu de Jos. The afternoon was hot, the man was… Read more »

Sighişoara, easy does it

Finally, summer is here! After a rainy and very cold June, the sun eventually came out, and the weather warmed up. And so, during the first true summer weekend of this year, we went to Sighisoara for a family reunion. As always, the bikes came along for the fun. Which meant that while the rest… Read more »

From Braşov to Buşteni

Since I had a free day during the week, I decided to use it by going on a recky I had been planning for a long time, but hoped I would not have to do by myself – you never know when something on the bike breaks, and you are in the middle of nowhere… Read more »
