Critical Mass

Last Sunday another Critical Mass was organized in town. This was the biggest so far, about 1500 people showed up. It was a nice ride through town and even the black clouds left when it started. The organizers can still improve their skills (more about this in romanian here).

I made a lot of pictures which you can find on Picasa here and on Facebook here. I also posted a video on Yotube with a kid who pedaled 18 kilometers with just a little help from his father:
See you at the next one :)

First forest ride in 2012

This Monday I went for a ride in the forest. It was raining a bit lately but I thought that it would be pretty dry in the fores and I missed the forest very much. 

The weather was kind of ok when I left my flat. when I was climbing up in the forest it was getting very hot. The ground was a bit wet and the sun was shining so the humidity was very high. The humid air combined with the pedaling resulted in me feeling very hot. Also I had some chili sauce for lunch so my stomach was hurting to.  (Note to self: never eat spicy foods before a ride.)

After the first climb the ride started to get fun. In some places the wind was blowing so it was cooler and in some places the trail got muddy so my bike was sliding. The forest is very beautiful, spring is finally here :)

I took some picture and uploaded them here. And now I'm off to the Critical Mass.

Stats:
 - time: 1:23:43
- distance: 20.33 km
 - average speed: 1,45 km/h
 - maximum speed: 45,7 km/h

Critical Mass

On the 22nd of April (2012) if you are in Targu Mures and if you have a bike you should be at the Critical Mass. It is a great biker celebration and an event to raise awareness about the huge numbers of bikers who represent a big part in the daily traffic.

Last year there where about 1200 participants and this time the organizers are expecting even more people. More information (in Romanian an Hungarian) on the official website here

Here are some pics from the last Critical Mass:
