Akrocalypse in Munich

It’s was time for our second Akrocalypse – 3 acrobatic days in Munich! This year Gabi, Anja and Tobi joined Babsi and me and we had a lot of fun during the 3 days.

We had the opportunity to try the trapeze, some acrobatic stuff on the floor, bungy salto and some other stuff. Additionally we were lucky to see the „Genesis of AkroArt“ show.

As usually we shot some photos for you.

Pinzgau on wheels

Last weekend one just a perfect one: blue sky and perfect rides on our wheels.

Pat, Toni, Darko and I started on saturday with Saalbach. While Pat and Toni rode the 4-cablecar tour, Darko and I ripped the Reiterkogel Bikepark in Saalbach/Hinterglemm. I really enjoyed the playful area and had plenty rides on 1 and 2 wheels.

On sunday Pat, Toni and I rode up the Hundstein and we were rewarded with  Kaspressknödlsuppn and brilliant singletrails….

Enough blabla – just enjoy the photos from Pat and Darko

MUniride: Enzianhütte to Seewaldsee

8538 Gladly we have sunshine now and Babsi wanted to go to a lake. Luckily I had the idea to combine the Seewaldsee with a MUni ride from the Enzianhütte down to the lake. After the uphill hiking and a stop at the Enzianhütte it was time for a really challenging downhill…
PS: I had to portage some, failed some and rode many ;)
PSS: Sorry for the image quality but the pix are videograbs …

MUniride at the Barmstein

Origami workshop by Paul Jackson

3483 After seeing the Origami exhibition I was glad to take part in Paul Jackson’s workshop Origami for artists and designers. Everthing started with feeling the paper (the grease…) and then we moved on to one fold and how to fix it. Crumbling was one of the next topics which is a really uncommon origami way for me (but cool), then we did some mountain and valley folding (the small image on the right) and lastly we did two modular orgami pieces. Of course you can see some of the stuff I did during the workshop.

If you want to explore some other stuff, take a look at Paul’s website in general and especially this subpage
and the subpage containing some work by his students – great crumbling stuff …

Origami exhibition in the Hangar-7

3451After my return from the exhausting MUni convention, Babsi and I set off the explore the Origami exhibition at the Hangar-7. Of course I had the camera along to show you some of the masterpieces.

One final remark: don’t miss it – you have to see this beautiful exhibition! It’s open until the 30th of September 2005 and it’s free.

High water surfing …

During the last weekend Salzburg was hit by heavy rainfalls that brought the rivers to really high levels… and suddenly waves appear where there is normally nothing … Curious? Read on to see the wave …

Slopestyle 2005 Weekend

After the friday muni ride with Harry the mood for the weekend was set: Mountain Times! On saturday we headed to Saalbach Hinterglemm where we met Sven for a mountain bike tour. We choose to ride to the Zwölferkogel which was a really tough (power wise) but boring tour. No hops or single trails at all … Due to the weather the Slopestyle was postphoned but at 19:00 Babsi and I had the pleasure to watch Ryan Leech on his trialbike – just amazing.

On sunday is was picture perfect wheater: Babsi and I hoped on our bikes again and rode a short biketour, then I challenged myself with the muni at the Trialparcour in Hinterglemm and at 12:30 the Slopestyle Finals 2005 started. It was just a wicked thing to see the riders dropping 8m, rushing over the wallrides and doing incredible dirtjumps (backloops, tailwhips, 360°, …). Final it was Darren Barenclaw who won the event with an astonishing ride.

Of course I shot some photos for you of the trialshow, the trialparcour and the Slopestyle

Pfingsttrip to Slovenia & Croatia

Pfingsten arrived and Babsi and I had to go on another trip. Due to some articles & guidebooks we decided to explore the rivers of Slovenia and Croatia – except the well known Soca. We started in the region of Bled, continued on to the slovenian Krka and there we had an accident that changed the hole trip: someone broke into our car.

Due to that we drove all the way to the croatian island Cres (fighting hail & snow with the heather and an always open – non-existing – window). There we found some nice mountainbiking, a very refreshing sea and a campsite that was the perfect muni-trailparcour.

Enough of the introduction – photos are just one click away or if you want to know some details ….
