After last week’s video about speed climbing, I thought an extreme cycling follow-up would be good. The video is called Radwanderung... which I can only guess is some eastern European language. no idea what it means. These guys have helmet cams and great balance, cycling along a very narrow path on the side of a mountain, with quite a gnarly looking drop down into the ravine beside them. I don’t think I would have the skills to do this, or even the courage to try. As a biking enthusiast I am impressed and envious, but as this path seems to be in eastern Europe, I doubt I will get there anytime soon. No listening in this week’s video, just sit back and relax and enjoy the music and try not to get motion sickness.
Mountain biking as absolutely one of my favorite pastimes and one of the key points that I love is how Eco-friendly it is. On my ride home along Lake Biwa in Otsu every night I see people fishing, hundreds of people, and I think that this too is such a great Eco-friendly pastime. Fishing, especially bass fishing lakeside, is so quiet, unobtrusive and relaxing looking. Though I don’t fish myself, I think I would enjoy it and am glad it’s so popular, as it keeps people happy and relaxed and doesn’t cause any grief.
Anyway- enjoy the ride!
Ed, it’s German and means literally ‘Bike Hiking’ or, alternatively ‘Trail Blazing’ if it’s about mountain bikes.
Of course there is also ‘Mountain Bike Trekking’ ! Just thought of it!
