Hi Bob, great pics so far, and a very promissing start to an awesome ride report!
At some point I thought me and my girlfriend are some of the few who do bike rides combined with mountain trekking and climbing (silly me...). After looking on your website - we feel like little kids playing with the shovel in the sandpit :) (I mean, we also have done quite a bit of riding&trekking in Retezat, Fagaras, etc. and in the Caucasus - but not during the phreakin' WINTER
and not up to 5-6Km above sea level). I can only have lots of respect for that!
We are eagerly awaiting for the rest of the riding and, of course, the climbing part!
As I am looking for a bike upgrade this winter, I was considering KTM 950 or 990. Just curious, how did the bikes cope with the high altitudes?
I am kind of hoping to tag along some time in the near future :) BTW, what plans do you have for this summer?
Noroc si numai bine,
