Cycling over one of the tallest mountain ranges in Romania (Sinaia – TransBucegi, Romania)

The ride on TransBucegi is a beautiful and challenging journey. In my case it is also the biggest climb I’ve done so far. Despite the crowded roads and the cold winds at the top, I did enjoy every single minute of it – Mother Nature did a terrific job in the Bucegi Mountains!

Climbing more than 1,300m in a day in Mallorca

The first day in Mallorca was one of the most beautiful and challenging in my (short) road cycling experience. With more than 1.300 elevation gain, it was more than I’ve climbed in my whole road cycling experience!

Relaxing ride with scenic views (Sibiu – Cisnadioara, Romania)

The challenging ride to Păltiniș from the previous day had definitely had an impact on us – the muscle soreness and lack of energy were at high levels when we woke up. However, our determination to ride also on the second day of the Sibiu adventure was stronger than the pain we felt. So after a quick breakfast at Nod Pub we were up in the saddle and ready for another climb.

First (of the many) real climb on the road cycle (Sibiu – Paltinis, Romania)

Saturday very early in the morning we left from Bucharest, sleepy but overly excited. At around 11.00 we arrived in Sibiu, ready for the ride! This time I was better equipped than the previous ride to Paltinu – I had a beautiful cycling jersey and my own lovely helmet. The bike was still rented, however it was perfectly sized for me.
