Friend of mine, not pictured, mysteriously managed to crash directly into this pickup truck parked on the side of the road. He was doing 60 kph and the truck was parked on the right side (!) of a right curve. Poor surface and he'd supposedly hit a hole, then losing control of his bike getting both wheels on the gravel off the road.. Broken vertebrae and repatriated by private plane a couple of days later. Fortunately he is recovering well and will spend a few weeks in a specialist hospital to train and recover further.


:shock: Ouch! I hope there isn't too much lasting damage to him.

great shots, Basilic. Not that I have any time during the day to ride, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be going up there even if I did!

Even though I had 2/3 of the ride rain I loved it. On some roads (like the on in the picture) I just stopped to listen to nothing and enjoy the view :P
Epic!

the last time was a mistake, I was so cold after the descent that I went straight home (despite dragging brakes to reduce wind chill). Ideally the cable car would be running and one could just ride it down (it's in repairs now). It looks like a proper winter is starting now, so here is to skiing.

for the longest time I rode strictly road bikes, but recently began to discover the dirt trails around me. I'm loving it so much I'm considering getting a disc-brake MTB for the gnarlier terrain.

Twas a bit cloudy today
