Another Mountain Bike Trip



I've just returned from another weekend biking trip. This time I went with a group of guys from NetBeans and their friends. Some statistics for Saturday:
  • length of the trip: 80 km (50 miles)
  • height advancement: 1340 m (approximately height difference of Prague and Snezka, the heighest Czech mountain)
  • terrain: rocks, trees, water, grass, sometimes asphalt and 2 crossing points with Poland
  • weather: sunny, no wind, 32 Celsius degrees (90 Fahrenheit degrees)
  • deaths: 0 - everybody survived, surprisingly :-)

I thought I would be clever so I've borrowed a bike from a local pension. I could have chosen from 4 bikes, where 2 were for women and 1 for children. So I chose the one which seemed to be almost usable. I think I had the worst bike of all the bikers we've met - it had only 1 disc at front and 5 discs at back (1 got broken). The breaks were almost dead, once I almost went downhill from the mountain where others steered - I just could not stop. I guess in other countries you could sue the bike lender. So the first day was very tough for me.

The next day Petr and me decided to go just for a nice small pub round trip. The rest of the guys went for a bigger trip, two of them even wanted to bike to Prague - not sure if they made it, they're probably still biking...

Here are two photos from today:


Petr Zajac
(his name is translatable as Peter the Rabbit)

That's me when we came back from lunch
(and beer).

I wonder how I am going to play three squash matches tomorrow and on Tuesday. There's only 2 days left till the end of league round. This is gonna hurt!

Not really, I haven't biked for half a year or so. I was half-dead ;-) Glad you like my posts!
