    I did a leisure ride yesterday (saturday) at least this was my intention. My goal was a hill near my hometown. I found on strava the ride, saved to my GPS and go. Until the hill everything was great. Sunny day, forest, not to warm

    Then I arrived to the hill where I think I will find a cycling path, even an rudimentary one. Instead of that, this:

    I pass all that trees and in top of the hill I didn't find any trace of cycling road, or any road and I decide to go back. And, another bad decision, I try to find another way home. Instead I found sheep adn big dogs. In that momment I got me lost because on my GPS I had only public roads not this foot paths. I wander almost 2 hours to find my way back home.
    It was hard, but after all was a very nice Saturday ride :)

    Congratulation for a good ride with 1400m climbing. Great view from the top.

    Great, I want to go on Transfagarasan next month, around 15-20, I don't know exactly. I plan a trip in the south of my country and this climb is on my way. So I want to spend a day there with my son :).
    @Bram is also interested in this climb :).
    I use Sygic navigation on my car. It is a great application. I also recommend it to everyone :grinning:. Unfortunately my phone is full (only 2 Gb of memory :cold_sweat:). In the car I use a tablet.

    Thank you Jan. In most part, landscape in my country it is untouched by man. This means, it is beautiful but you can't get to it :(. As an example it is the path I try to follow. It could be a good source of income if the local authorities would like to do a little effort to clean the path, and advertise it to attract tourists. I know it is easy to speak but it hurts when you see so much indifference :sob:.

    I'd love to be able to explore mountains like that on a daily basis :).

    Yeah, I am really lucky to live in the part of the Earth where I can reach high mountains right from my home. I dont even need to transport bike with the car, so close is everything :)

    @Matej Lakota how come you are not on Strava buddy. I'd like to rip and copy all of those awesome routes you are cycling :)

    @Bram I am using SportsTracker now for 10 years and I have all my routes/trainings/statistics there. If you want, I can send you all .gpx files of interesting routes I have driven in the past here around and you simply put/upload them into Strava.

    The weather here has been amazing the last couple of days and I made a few stunning rides on the MTB. Man, life is so much better when the sun shines :) #loveclimatechange

    Sometimes I take a break from cycling and except some "light" drives I mostly go to run, because I don t want my sports activities become too monotone. So, today s ride was real joyride over Jelovica, even weather was all the time on the edge and keep my attention with two questions, will there start to rain or maybe rather not :)
