Hi guys,

has been 2 weeks that i moved to Linkoping from Brazil and i just bought my new MTB. Had to sell my old one there.
Wonder if there will be any training with the group, so i can learn where the trails are.

Cheers!

Hi and welcome to Linköping, I hope you enjoy the climate change. Wink

It's a bit low on organized training this time of year, but I'm sure we can arrange a ride to guide you on the local trails.

The next interesting series of events will be the Vinter Cup that will start early 2015. It's a playful competition of sorts where strange rules almost always ensures the fastest rider doesn't win. Smile

BTW most people ride winter beater bikes now since salt and water is hard on your nice bike.

Sundays at 9.00 we usually ride all year, but it's more road endurance training than mountainbiking.

Thank you for the reply!

Got interested in this Vinter Cup.

The climate change was crazy. i just left from 38 degrees celsius in Brazil. heard some lies that the temperature will drop to -15 here. its kidding right?

So i will check in the forum if will have any training.

Cheers!

The last few years we have actually had brief spells of around -30, but usually it's between -10 and +5 through February-March, come April it usually gets warmer quickly. It never gets warm by Brazilian standards, ever.

We do get a lot more daylight during early spring.

Keep an eye out for the Vinter Cup and post your ride plans here and you may get some company. Smile

As a preliminary plan I could show you around the Vidingsjö trail on Saturday morning. Not that you need guiding, really, as it is quite well marked, but it will be more fun. Smile

That was good. The ice from hell claimed some victims but otherwise we did well I think.

Beto passed the Vidingsjö test with flying colors! Grade

thank you all for this awesome ride.
i thought that i would miss the hills in Rio de Janeiro,
but the trails here are so good, that i think i wont.
I still have to learn with the PROs here.

and i wasnt a victim of the ice of hell, i was just stretching on the ice lying down. its good for the muscles.
