About Sigge and Mike I’ve heard last year. They were described as mountainbikers with very good tehnical skills so that made me pretty much eager to meet them. And I just say this: It all worthed. This year they came with Thomas and we rode the Carpathian Expert Ride wich is the most difficult tour offered by MTBtours.ro – and Mountainguide.ro in Romania at this point. I had big expectations from the whole trip but I have to confess: the tour and the way of riding was so much beyond my dreams.

The flying Dutch across the Carpathians
Karin, Yvonne, Angelique and Henk came to Romania this September to do a “TransCarpathian” ride on mountain bikes. Even if the trip was an “advanced” one, they got more than they bargained for. The climbs were longer and more difficult than expected (on or off the bike), the descents more technical – generally what we consider being “advanced” mountain biking was a closer match to what our Dutch guests considered an “expert” level… (>>>)
Two days of thrilling riding on the natural bike park called Postavaru Mountain and across the gorgeous beauties of Piatra Craiului Mountains, with Sigge and Arnon. Great weather, challenging trails, tones of adrenaline. Last but not least, a great company. What more does one need for a perfect weekend out in the wild?
As always, we feel privileged to live in a place like Brasov, with easy access to beautiful mountains, superb scenery and amazing trails.

We started in August 2010 in Simon village and finished it in May 2011 further 20 kilometers away, near Zarnesti. You’d say quite a short ride for such a long time and you’d be right. The plan was to do the tour over one weekend last summer, but after a gorgeous Saturday the rain came. We weren’t able to reschedule the second part of the tour until this May, so voila, mystery revealed.
Steve and Robbie wanted to go on some more techni… (>>>)
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 … (>>>)
