I am really getting into mountain biking. There was a time I couldn’t even imagine that I would ride across mountain ridges. Even getting across it on foot was difficult. I thought I would give up right below the peak for many times. Today, I am realizing that I might be an enthusiastic mountain biker.
We started our autumn bike trip in unusual town of Oravska Lesna. First break was in the Oravska forest railroad station – Tanecnik. We climbed up the steep hill to a crossroad on the ridge. We continued from there to Sedlo Beskyd station. There we went into the observation platform. Today we go along the ridge one more time to see a beautiful chapel, our last stop.

Do you belong among winter sports lovers? Also, you can not imagine a winter holiday without a good snow and well-maintained slopes? Although, I have to admit that in recent years we go with a group on skiing for one week. Usually, we go abroad, but the Slovak mountains, we did not forgot about. My favorite places have been for years the Kysuce and Orava regions.
