Not every peak is bikeable. But some are, and they are something else.
Going for the peaks
The trails at Barcaciu
Few places in Fagaras Mountains are really good for mountain biking – Barcaciu is one of them.
Up and down the Strunga Pass

Hike a bike, or bike a hike?
We were mountain people before becoming mountain bikers. Being up on the trails is what we are after, and biking is just one of the ways to get up there. We don’t mind if some push bike or carry bike comes in our way, when that is the price one must pay to reach some… Read more »

Cycling with our kids along river Olt
After one year of daily bike commuting to the kindergarten (apart from a few rainy days and a very short winter season) Alex is now ready for more consistent trips. Like the 20km trip along river Olt last weekend, together with our traditional partner in outdoor adventures, Rareș. We cycled on dirt roads close to… Read more »
