The rainy and muddy summer of 2014 in Romania did not stop us in having a glorious week, biking on the trails around Predeal, climbing the great Strunga Pass from the West Side (the in-famous Strunga descent just became an equally thrilling Strunga climb)
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!
