Went to see where the river which runs through my town has its origin.
It was my first mountainbike ride in over a decade so i thought i share these two pics of this wounderful day with you all.
I learned two things: Uphill sucks and the second one i forgot..

That is some serious scenery.

If that was near me, I'd be there every weekend :shock:

The good thing about uphill is you don't need riding technique skills. That was the second thing i learned that i now remember again. When we were going downhill real fast i thought the whole time i have no clue what i'm doing..but hey i survived. :D
I really haven't thought about a second ride. First my behind has to stop aching. :)

Fantastic scenery! Where is it?

I think I see the problem however - you need to get yourself a retro bike! ;-)

Hey whatever you're riding the main thing is to be out there - enjoy :-)

All my 4 retro bikes are in bits in the man cave so i really try not to get me another one of those. :)
The bike in the pic wasn't even my own. It belongs to the father of the chap i was riding with. This man is 71 years old but he has some modernish clip pedals on his bike which is fun to ride without the matching shoes. :D
The place where we started is called Scharnitz. 10 minutes from Garmisch at the German/Austrian boarder.

get out while your arse still hurts. Toughens you up, otherwise it will just hurt everytime

lesson 1, uphill sucks; lesson, 2 wear shoes that are compatible with your pedals.

No wonder it was so hard
