Martin  J Austria Tribe Tribe

Contributorgold Martin J A hell of a ride yesterday, 500 höhenmetres all off road on my 'Alpine' bike. The gradient was severe the whole way up the Schwarzachtal. I got up to 1700m and the path ran out, then for mountaineers only!! Downhill was rather fraught and scary - I remembered why suspension is a good idea.... The weather, well you can see for yourselves!

Thank you Stasha, circumstances.... I really hope to make the most of the sports opportunities available. I met the local personal trainer last night. I had small drink, he didn't! Says it all really... ;D

Contributorgold Martin J Had another fantastic evening ride. To start it takes about 40 mins climbing to get to the Lake before descending and round and into the forest with a very fast return home. I binned my computers so I cant advise of average speed or exact mileage. Trying to focus on ride quality (reads like a cop out!!!!) and taking in the nature.. Pics to follow of views that engulf me on the ride. I hope you enjoy and are inspired to make a trip!!

Hi Helen, this was a brilliant ride last nite. I put together a fast cross country machine specifically for this type of riding. It was my old mountain bike that I adapted - I am not a big fan of the mountain bike position, I prefer road positioning but the stability of the longer wheelbase and gearing range for this type of challenge. I did spend a bit more than I wanted but hey, the bike is still with me from 1996 - I am a big fan of recycling!! ;D

Communicatorgold Rita P replied to the topic Singing is a sport

So agree, Kurt!  After a gig of a couple of hours, just straight up singing (not to mention when I have to act and dance as well), I'm tired, not merely because I've been standing, but because of all that work I do to focus on my sound, fighting t...
