Trail destruction.DSCF7209DSCF7211

Things to have :

- tyre boot

- needle and thread

- patch kit

- Inner tube

First time in my life I got a minor sidewall cut and only cure I found in my pack was a new inner tube.  So without the first 3 items I had a second flat ten minutes after the repair.

Ended up walking 10 km back home…

Easter overnighter

Night temperatures finally lowered to a suitable level for my sleeping gear and due to the weather lately, I had a slight hope for some snow crust on top of the mires in Kurjenrahka national park.

Weather forecast looked very promising for the next day.

It was possible to ride in some parts, but it took little bit too much energy to be fun. I spent maybe an hour mashing and pushing until I returned to more rideable tracks.DSCF6587 DSCF6589 DSCF6594 DSCF6609 DSCF6615 DSCF6625
