Sports, School, Mountainbiking

Had a great sports week in Carinthia. Propably my last such Event, nevertheless no need to lapse into remorse. The steep and long climbs are not exactly my terrain, though, yet they are typical for Alpine territory. But that's what cablecars are for.

7 Rides on Istria

My base was located near Pula, the small village of Peruski. The landscape is hilly the lesser roads are tarmac with potholes, the offroad tracks are gravel, dirt and the interesting ones are usually overgrown. No precise maps can be found. There are number of "official" tracks, but usually not quite where you'd like to start. So I decided to go into pathfinder mode and find my own tracks and trails. Beastly and gnarly stuff, but pure Adventure when you are not afraid of dogs. There are quite a handful of them, especially at the outer fringes of the numerous small villages you eventually hit on your stray ramblings. All in all 350 km and 4000 vertical meters and some 21 hrs of riding.
All in all a FIVE STAR holiday.

Old Year's Reunion

All the old friends came, Andi brought his son (WorldCup 4-Crosser) Lukas and his friend, Franz threw in his perfect ride, the e-mtb, Renè his 29-er and all his power, left me pretty armourless except that I had to plan the route. So finally we made it to our route Highlight "The Glockenberg". The riding was awesomely exhausting, muddy, slippery, but also awesomewly rewarding in terms of adventure and good feelings. This wraps up this year's MTB-riding and opens up perspectives for next year's adventures.

Pilgrimage ctd. - the final walk this year

This time a staggering 36 km between Kirchberg/wagram and Krems. On our last few kilometers we lost the way and deviated through vinyards on steep terraces. The extra kms hurt, but did not kill the spirit.
My group of pilgrims did well and so we finished in Krems in good spirits and in a joy ful mood.
