Jizera Mountains, edition 2019

Jizera Mountains 2019

I visited Jizera Mountains again in this year. It was great time with a lot of hard cycling – not 100 km, but more that 2000 m uphill. Ufff, it was difficult, but amazing. I made a lot of personal records in many segments on Strava. Yep, it wasn’t most important, but it always something good. When next time? Maybe this year? Not sure, but want visit Jizera again! One info: tubeless saves me this time, but I disovered this after went back to home. I will wrote about that in one of next posts.

Bryton Rider 530 – Review

Bryton Rider 530

As a very active cyclist, I use computer bike. Tried many solutions during last year and can say something about that. First was standard, digital Sigma, but without any connections, any synchronization etc. It was just simple, wireless computer bike with speed and cadence sensors.

After these two years, my opinion is the same. I have some additional observations: gravel bikes are better. And it’s probably the best bike in the world, most universal, the best for most of the users. Especially for cyclist from my country, from Poland, when “MTB is the king”. But things change, and it seems that gravels will be the most popular bike type. Read to see why.

Why I decided to stop racing

Road bike racing

Last time I post about this year edition of Uraz Cross Bike race. It was my first race in this year and it was difficult. It was first and… I think the last one in this year. Why? After this race, I decided to stop, to rest and cancel my starts for this year. I feel tired, maybe burnout and should stop for some time. Also, decided to write this post about racing on amateur level, and why I should stop here. Racing are great, but also have a lot of disadvantages. Of course, you can’t agree with me, but just read me arguments. I don’t want to discourage anyone – it’s only my decision and my point of view.
