Bucegi Circuit – learning experiences
Many of our tours are not just about riding. It’s also about learning, guides and guests altogether.
Age is just a number
In a time when e-mtbs are the norm, a classic six days Bucegi Circuit with four old timers from UK is like a gulp of fresh air.
Bucegi Circuit 2017 – first instalment
Our first Bucegi Circuit tour for the 2017 season had special guests from Israel.

The epic part in mtb is the mountain
No matter how you look at it, a maximal altitude of 300 m makes Lithuania a flat country. A type of terrain that is suitable for cross-country mountain biking, with relatively short and frequent ups and downs. No place for long, consistent, technical uphills or downhills.
