Right after the previously reported bike skill training we made a trip to Mittenwald (Karwendel mountains) – of course for mountain biking! There we tested the before learned techniques and enjoied the beautiful landscape.
For our tours through the mountains we were well prepared since we had downloaded the most promising (and classic) routes on a Garmin GPS device (thanks to Doreen for lending it to us). Regrettably, the part of real single trails was very low and most of the ways were forest or alp roads. So for understandable reasons we searched for every little path (dashed line in the map) close to our route. Sometimes we were successful and in other cases we were crawling down some creeks w/o any trace of a track (except a warning sign for risk of life at the end of the creek).
By using the new technique for stepp descents (propably not in a right way) I had a littly accident with a rollover which caused some scratches and a dent in the bike frame! Thx Tobi 😉 … usually I use to be far behind the seat so that rollovers are impossible!
To go on with bike damages – Denise broke her bike frame by jumping over a tiny bump. Luckily not so far away from our flat … So for the next tour we had to rent a new bike, which was really heavy and therefore a bad example for a full-suspension mtb.
