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 »
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 »
“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 »
Guided mtb trips on natural trails in the Romanian mountains. Enduro, trail riders, all-mountain and cross-country: you name it, we’ve got you covered!
The old cart road from Sibiel to Crinţ used to be invaded by sand or tall grass – that’s how we discovered it four-five years ago, when we started cycling in the Mărginimea Sibiului area.

And since Horia and I are not very passionate about the all inclusive deal, we decided to break ranks and take the bikes along. So Horia consulted with his buddy, Google Maps is his name,… Read more »

This autumn, the weather we were expecting in October came in November. It’s been weeks now since it hasn’t rained in Brasov, the sky is almost always clear and we are enjoying mild temperatures, even early in the morning. Just the perfect excuse the give the bikes one more try, before the weather eventually turns… Read more »
We’ve been planning to go on a ride around Poiana Marului for a long. We kept postponing it, on account of the weather, or the “competition” – from Brasov you can easily get to much more popular areas such as Postavaru, Piatra Craiului, Bucegi. The Persani Mountains (to which the hills of Poiana Marului belong… Read more »
