After long negotiations, we are finally ready to announce the first meeting for classic mountainbikes on fortress Koenigstein near Dresden in Saxony, Germany.
Our location will be on top of the fortress, where we are allowed to stay for some days.

More about the fortress here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/K%C3%B6nigstein_Fortress
On July 13/14 there will be an "OutdoorWeekend"-Event with lots of activities like climbing, slaglining, mtb downhill, diving, bowshooting, mtb trail, etc.
http://www.festung-koenigstein.de/index ... AKTIV.html
Our meeting will be embedded into the whole event. Idea is to show around 30 to 50 mountainbikes in a 2-day exhibition, they will be protected by professional security guys like the other museum pieces there. This allows us to use the fortress area for our activities, like little competitions, racing through the dark casemates, doing a little swap meet, having a tour through the beautiful sandstones on sunday, barbecue & beer & talk....we also will have the possibility to stay overnight, when regular visitors must leave the rock. That's why we will need a registration in advance - but at a later time.
More details to follow!
