All mountain, all weather We had it all. A few spells of hot temperatures and sun, fluffy white clouds and spring time temperatures higher up in Bucegi, torrential rain but also autumn like drizzles, sometimes patches of fog. We were not spoiled by the weather, but we were spoiled with a full range of mountain biking trails, treks, roads, routes, you name it – the harsh ascent up to Baiului ridge, the tricky and scary trails up in Bucegi mountains, the descents at Sinaia, Postavaru, the scenic gorges of Zarnesti, the great views on the hills of Pestera, Magura and Simon villages. “It simply hurts my eyes”, said one of the 14 bikers who came from Israel to test our mountain biking trails, about the landscape he layed his eyes on while cycling from one village to another around Bran Castle. All in all, the unusual abundance of rain in the middle of the summer added somehow to the exoticism of the tour: for the Israeli bikers it was a spectacle in itself, they said they are happy with one week of rain in winter time back in Israel, then the rest of the year is dry, dry, dry.
Thank you Michael Didi & co. for a nice week!
