Our Transylvanian Alps tour is a tough nut to crack: six days of intensive single trail mountain biking. Difficult fort most, not for the Swedes.
Our first Bucegi Circuit tour for the 2017 season had special guests from Israel. The four brave mountain bikers came to Romania for a nice biking holiday and ended up with much more than that: they’ve sampled what “mountain” stands for in “mountain-biking”, they’ve improved their skills on bike both for the climbs and the… Read more »
“Brutal” and “total” were the most used words by our four guests during our seven-day mountain biking tour across the Carpathians.

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)

They left Constanţa on the Black Sea shore when they were kids to live with their families close to the wet and chilly North Sea. How were George and Răzvan able to get into mountain biking in Denmark,… Read more »

We biked… Read more »
