(Română) Tabără tehnică de mountain biking – două zile la Poarta/Bran, în ultimul weekend din aprilie. Între mielul de paște și micii de 1 Mai, vino să dăm burta jos pedalând cu rost și miez pe cărările de lângă Bran.

Ideal for advanced cross-country and all-mountain enthusiasts, as there are a few quite demanding uphill sections, this trail is most of the times avoided by the local downhillers. They prefer more straight forward descents, and ”Valea cu Apa” is much… Read more »
We rode this weekend the trails of Postăvaru and Piatra Craiului, and it was great fun. We were also able to dodge some of the terrible heat of this Mediterranean summer by staying under the trees for as much as possible. And as an extra-bonus, an unexpected but quite thrilling photo shooting with a Swedish… Read more »
