During our holiday we have been to Switzerland. We stayed on the Leukerbad campsite.
We had some great bike rides and with the “gäste karte” you get a discount on the cablecars as well.
This we could go up with the cablecar and cycle downwards. The Leukerbad website does have several routes available.
We did take route 6 and the Flowtrail.
We also did walk to the Lämmerenhütte, a special article will follow.
Video’s on the biketrail you can see below.
Last week I have been working on my old Travel discription of the GR20 in Corsica.
It was back in 2001 and 2002 I walked the GR20.
The travelblog is written down on my own site now.
It is in dutch and you can read it here.
Last year I saw a lot more fatbike.I always wondered how it would ride.
I can imagine in loose sand /snow it would be very handy. This week during our holiday in Switzerland I had the opportunity to try a fatbike.
I hired a fatbike at the local rental shop. This was just a basic fatbike with standard Shimano parts and a mechanical disc brake.
In the lower area the had the “winterwanderwege” ( winter trails) to bike on.
Most of the trails are good to ride. If you try to ride on a fresh snow part the big tyres are not floating anymore.
It was a nice experience. Perhaps next time a more excited trail.
I have been using my Garmin virb camera’s quit a lot over de last view years.
It did start with the Garmin Virb in 2013 .
I used the Garmin Virb XE a lot for all out MTB rides en cycling trips.
Recently I moved over to the Garmin Virb Ultra. A real GoPro killer. All accessoiries are compatible with the gopro mounts.
The biggest issue was to find a Gimbal that was compatible.
Since a few month Feiyu Tech did enter the market with the G5 gimbal. A waterproof gimbal that fits the Garmin Virb Ultra.
It is possible to put the G5 on a tripod and use the app to remote.
More photo’s and video’s are on its way.
This weekend I used the Gimbal on a mtb ride. Some more details below.
A couple of weeks ago there was a intresting article on the dutch news page, RTL news . The did quote a Belgium article saying it is better to start biking without training wheels.
If children start using a balance bike they will easily start riding a bike without training wheels.
We used a wishbone bike to learn our son biking. First we did use it as a trike later on we changed it to a balance bike. It was a bit wobly the first weeks but after that he did go faster every day.
Finn did biked on a 12 inch mini bike without using training wheels.
