Bike parks on hardtail – spot 3: Zieleniec

Family Bike Park Zieleniec is known as a place for beginners, boring for advanced. Indeed, most of the trails are for people with low skills, but it seems to me that you need to have high skills to take full advantage of these trails. Especially the new Crazy Dad.

krucze skały, karpacz

Karpacz – an area for beginner climbers near Sokoliki

Krucze Skały in Karpacz is a small climbing area, but rich in bolted routes in the IV – VI range. For people climbing at this level, it can be a good alternative to crowded Sokoliki.

My multi-pitch adventures or 3 most common mistakes of beginner climbers

Multi-pitch climbing is not a piece of cake. Things don’t always go according to plan ;) Read what didn’t go well during my climbs and how to prevent problems.

salinella, san vito

Climbing on Sicily: San Vito Lo Capo

Lovely place! The location of the rocks by the sea is one of San Vito’s greatest assets. Plus a lot of routes on the five-six level. One week was definitely not enough!

nove mesto nad metuji

Climbing in Czechia: Nové Město nad Metují

I haven’t climbed on something like this yet! The rocks in Nové Město nad Metují, although not very diverse, are also different from Jura, Sokoliki and any other climbing area I have seen. In addition, the pleasant location by the river and the lack of crowds make this area a very nice change from other climbing regions.

bike park leogang

Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Leogang, Fieberbrunn – Austria’s bike parks

Saalbach, Hinterglemm, Leogang and Fieberbrunn are towns between Salzburg and Innsbruck, promoted as the Austria’s largest bike region. I spent a week there in July this year and there is indeed a lot to do there, although under the slogan “largest in Austria”, I expected it to be even bigger.

slotwiny bike park

Bike parks on hardtail – spot 2: Słotwiny Arena (Krynica-Zdrój)

One of the best spots I have had the pleasure to visit. Smaller and larger tabletops on smoothed routes give the opportunity to fly both less and more experienced and provide great fun also on a hardtail.

bike park dolni morava

Bike parks on hardtail – spot 1: Dolni Morava

Bike Park in Dolni Morava in the Czech Republic is one of those places where you can have a great fun on a hardtail MTB bike. Several kilometers of routes, big berms and lots of tabletops. I liked it!

Climbing in Costa Blanca in Spain – multi-pitch routes

Sierra de Toix and Penon de Ifach are two 330-meter-high rocks located right by the sea between Alicante and Valencia. Recently, I had the opportunity to climb them on several-pitched routes. Read how it was and where else on the Costa Blanca you can do multi-pitch climbing. I write also about attaching the belay device wrong way and what to do to avoid making a mistake like me.
