During my trip to Europe I had a chance to do a near Augsburg MTB ride. We started somewhere at the outskirt of Augsburg, an ancient Bavaria city in south Germany.

At first we did a nice stroll through local roads and neighborhoods, heading towards the forest center.

There seemed to be some lumbering activities here.

As we came to the forest center, we started to do a first little descend.

The Raining Phase

As we approach our first stop, rain mixed with hail began to pour from the sky. We had no choice but to stay under the forest for a while.

Holy wet and chilly!

To save our time and keep warm, we decided to do some climbs under the rain. No pleasant, but at least we were not so cold!

There was some workout stations in the forest. Quite surprising!

After some pedaling we decided to head into the woods again. There were many roots on the forest trails, and the rain made them very slippery!

The roots made climbing hard and sometimes we had to walk our bikes!

And finally, we were ready to do another descend through the woods!

Then we did our 3rd descend here, which I crashed a little bit due to the slippery roots! The root was in 1 o’clock direction, which pushed my bike towards right so I flew to the left.

To Vista Point

Having some fun of the descend we climbed again to a vista point and see the views.

In Europe you could find a water fountain supplying drinkable water, which was pretty nice!

Last two trails

Finally we did some repetition on the two trails here.
