To be honest, in last couple of yours I have been more into bicycling. It is partly thanks to my husband that has been in love with this sport for decades. We conquer more and more hills together not as tourists but also a mountain bicyclers. This is the reason why I was really happy whne I received the new publication of the Around Slovakia . The book is called The Most Beautiful Hills for Bicycling . In the book I found 25 of the most beautiful Slovakian hills that one can get on by bike. After listing in this book I understood words of my husband who says that always says that we make our biking too easy. Despite the fact that I hardly catch my breath at the end of each tour and I see have small hallucination how tired I am. For example, the route No 3 going along the ridges of the Javorniky and is one of the precious gems of mountain bicycling in Slovakia, is about 74 kilometers long. The elevation on the route is about 707 meters. However, altogether you have to ride through unbelievable 2015 meters of elevation. According to the book, the biking trail runs from Ochodnice through Velky Javornik Mountain to Lysa nad Makytou. I had enough even though I manage to ride thrgouh much longer trail leading from Kohutka to Velky Javornik and back. This is the reason why the book became sort of a challenge for me. To overcome the peak by a bike is much harder than to overcome it on foot. However, this toil has a magic to it. Often I got this feeling that doing mountain bicycling one reaches his en, new end. The feeling when you manage to conquer the peak, is priceless.
Anyway, lets get back to the book The Most Beautiful Hills for Bicycling written by Karol Mizla andDaniel Kollar. Except for detailed description of individual biking trails, the authors give you a general description how to overcame each peak. Sometimes you even can choose from several options how to get to the top. Less skillful sportsmen will appreciate this, as I did. Often we have to suit our endurance to a route we want ride. Other time, while you are going to overcame the hill of your choice, you have an option to ride some other, surrounding, hills for bicycling. In total, the book offers not 25 but 46 descriptions how to overcame peaks on your bike!
Each biking trail is described in detail and also very well marked. A bicycler can read not only about elevation profile of a route, but also a well made map, or its level of difficulty . Most of bicycling trips one thus can easily adjust to one’s time and endurance capabilities. More than one half of the trips mentioned in the book are circular. It means that you set off at the same point to which you later return after several hours of hard bicycling but in happy mood. Most of the routes even connect right to another. Thus you can made a longer tip lasting perhaps a couple of days. The author of the book does not forget to mention shortcuts for less physically skillful bicyclers.
