New top speed (MTB)

Two days ago I broke my high speed record. There is a small paved hill near the forest where I like to do some training. My new record on my mountain bike is 70,2km/h, a day before I got up to 67km/h. This time I blocked the suspension and I went full speed.
I wonder how fast can I go there with my Race Kings or with some slicks.

They are always yours

The only things that are always yours are your thoughts, nobody can own your thoughts!

If you don't understand hungarian the refrain of this song can be translated like this:
It can be easy for you, but it's not so bad for me either, I can think what I want!

A great weekend - Part 3

Continued from here.

After sleeping under a tree we woke up early and headed for a short ride on tarmac...But after just a few kilometers we saw the ruins of a castle so we changed our plans.
The view was breath taking. Near the ruins there was a canyon so we headed there. We couldn't go all the way on the bikes so we continued on foot. We didn't go all the way on the trail, we stopped at a water fall.
We continued our journey on the road, between some beautiful rocks.
It was lunch time and we stopped in a village where we got directions to a place to eat. The restaurant was hidden so we started thinking that we got lost. We finally arrived to a very beautiful place, a very nice restaurant with some cute houses. The food was great and the view was even better.
We found out that there is a water fall nearby so we headed that way. There was no road so we were riding and pushing in the water :)
We finally arrived at the waterfall were we cooled down a bit. The water was great and there were a lot of people.
After carrying the bikes up a stiff cliff the road was better but we had to pass through the water a lot of times.
First time we passed through the water it was a few meters wide but at the end we could just jump over it. After we got to a small village were we got some fresh water we started to climb up. After putting some air in my rear tire we started to make good progress (no more water crossings).
The view was awesome, I always liked to ride on the top of the hills or mountains.  After we got to a village named Pietroasa the real climb begun, we had to climb about 300 meters (from 500 meters to about 800 meters above sea level). We were very tired and we had no more food and a storm was coming. We were a bit nervous and I had some bad thoughts.

We started to descend in the forest but we lost the road and we got lost. The battery of my phone died so we had no gps either. This was one of my worst biking experience. We were descending in a ditch were there was a lot of vegetation, we had to push a lot. To make things worst my rear tire was very soft :(

We were very happy when we saw a road. After fixing my rear tire we started a crazy descent because it was getting dark, the storm was catching us. The bikes were all over the place because the road was slippery, but we were going fast. I was never so happy to see asphalt :D

We were very happy and started racing to Rimetea. We were shouting and passing cars. When the rain finally started we were already packed :)

It was one of my greatest adventure on two wheels, we got lost but we've found the road!

All the pics here, and the map here.
