The Postavaru Mountains, the Piatra Craiului National Park and the Bucegi Natural Park were our playground for an intensive four-days mountain biking adventure at the beginning of the 2018 season.
Our guests were a group of French “VTT-istes” from Lyon area. They enjoyed the great landscapes, the nice weather, the delicious local food, and, of course, the great trails.
We are slowly but firmly building a proper French Connection, putting Romania on the top destinations list for “les VTTistes français”… (>>>)
Sometimes it is simply better to let our guests tell the story. Without much ado, here it is:
“We are a group of four Swedes who love exploring different countries and especially the mountains and the country side on bike, by foot and on skies. This year we decided to travel to Romania to test the Carpathians on mountain bikes. The expectations were set high after reading the web page and the professional contact with Horia and Iulian before arriving in Romaina. And indeed, the Carpathians and our experiences during the week didn’… (>>>)
I don’t know about you, but I am pretty sure about me: it’s like Lubo and Milo that I want to be when I am sixty years old. On bike, riding single trails, sweating uphill and shouting downhill. Visiting new places, new countries, new mountains.
I read somewhere that the secret to have a healthy heart and a fresh mind is to do something that scares you a little in every day of your life. Well, we definitely provided enough testing moments for Milo and Lubo during the four days of mountain biking we organized for them this August. Th… (>>>)
Word about our mtb tours in the Carpathian mountains, Transylvania, is constantly spreading. Bikers from Germany, Austria, The Netherlands, UK, Sweden are coming here for a few good years now, and it was about time for the French mountain bikers to show up.
Jean and Nelly flew over from Toulouse, searching for some nice single trails, single track, all-mountain type biking to test their brand new 27.5 full-suspension bikes. And that’s precisely what they’ve found, along with gorgeous scenery, delicious food, perfe… (>>>)
After a mountain biking week, being in the mountains with Sigge’s friends, I realized how great it is to be fit and to be able to try everything on the bike in the mountains. This time I learned another lesson. With the group from Steven, I was amazed to observe how the people, when fit enough, are enjoying the Romanian natural trails. It’s interesting and I’m sure the trails which are build for moutainbiking are very nice but I think the natural ones are something special. Of course they are more demanding and as one of my guests was sa… (>>>)
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… (>>>)
