MTB on an ideal weekend morning in The Netherlands
What makes you happy on a Saturday morning? Well, a heavy mountainbike route is definitely on my list of 50 things to do what gives me energy and makes me happy. A challenging mountainbike tour, yes this makes me feel so happy…. Oh my god, my adrenaline was pumping through my veins when I biked the mountain bike trail in Schoorl ?♀️ A small town close to the sea and dunes in the North of Holland. The first part of the mountainbike trail is full of tree roots (which reminded me to the “Wurzl” trail in Austria) and I always need to step down and walk this part up to let my heartbeat not completely go in the ‘red’ zone. Important to let your body recover in this stage ?

But after this challenging part, I’ve managed to stay on my bike even on the two steep very high climbs…. The most amazing part for me, is after the first high climb, when I’m overlooking the dunes with the sound of the waves far away, at that point there’s a long trail down. I just let go of my brakes and let my bike take me down, so much faster than I can imagine completely out of your comfort zone and that gives me a feeling of freedom and flying….. There’s so much energy in motion, with the small curves when you almost hit trees if you bike to fast. It was just my bike and me completely lost in nature and having so much fun.
