Costa Rica – a natural wonderland

5189Winter arrived in Salzburg – so Babsi & I were in search for some warm sunshine. This time our destination was Costa Rica – due to the rivers and the amazing wildlife. During our 4 weeks we fell in love with that beautiful country and its people, the Ticos, who were just super friendly. Read on for some of our highlights:

Testing the EOS 300D …

Armin borrowed me his SLR camera – the Canon EOS 300D and of course Babsi and I tested it a little bit.

OK – the camera is really cool to handle and adjustable to every situtation (I really like the aperature and the timed mode) but it has one disadvantage: it’s to slow for sporty shots … we only got 3 shots from the big hop … just one in the air …
Ok, more at the photos …

Tere, Tallinn – Estland/Eesti

Thanks to Miles&More Babsi and I thought about an autuum trip – Ireland, Spain and the Baltics where the favourite canditates. Finally we settled on Tallinn – the capital of Estland. During our time there we explored Tallinn with its amazing medival buildings, the Kohvik (Cafes) and the modern town. The city itself was also an amazing municycle terrain.

Addionally we drove to the Lahemaa Nationalpark. Beautiful mushroom woods, bogs and the sea – everything the nature lover needs for a perfect day. Except the signs of lynx, bears and moose and the tree, which made us a little bit nervous. Ok – enough – I hope you want to see the pictures.

MUni & MTB Weekend

On Saturday the MUnicycle article from Manu was printed in the Salzburger Nachrichten featuring some statements from me and a photos of Moose and one of me – the article is of course online for you :)
New: Manu’s article was again printed in the Berchtesgadener Anzeiger

After reading the article it was time to switch to two wheels – Mountainbiking in the Bikeworld Leogang was our aim on sunday. Sadly I crashed on the 2nd run and got a bruise on the shoulder (Prellung der Schulter) – so I made some photos from Anschi and Pat at the Northshore structures …

1st Gaisberg Top.to.Bottom MUni Descent

Thurday was the day our new 24′ MUni arrived – Friday was assembly day and a first testride. We had to get used to our new toys that Roland from municycle.com made for us. The cool features are the KrisHolm frame, hub/crank set and saddle – a Magura HS 33 break and the Wildlife Leopard 24×3.0 tire …

Saturday was the first real thing for the MUni – Mum, Rita and Martin shuttled us to the top of the Gaisberg and from there on it was a rough terrain ride for 800m altitude.The route: Gaisberg Spitz – Alte Trasse (via the Canyon) – Zistelalm – Rauchenbichl – Mittereggwanderweg – Rodelbahn – Glasenbach Kreisverkehr – and we made some photos for you ….

Nordpark Singletrail

What a week: after a few days in St.Anton/Arlberg (paddling the Rosanna & biking to the Putzenalm) at the Filmfest, Babsi and I moved on to the Engadin, where we paddled the Giarsun and rode our bikes to the Alpe Clunaz and in the Ardez area.

Finally we arrived in Innsbruck, where we descended the Nordpark Singletrail. The steepest biketrails I ever saw – no way for me to ride them, only to crash them down … so after the ride it was time for the spa in Seefeld to relax my destroyed body ….
