The Feartaker – Downhill Transfer w/ Mr. Schmid

[The Feartaker, span. "El quita miedos" - people say that this trail will take all fear off you. Try to believe.]

Well, the Transfer sessions with Mr. Schmid are by nature a great adventure, but this was by far the funniest ever.
First snow (15cm/6″)at Puerto Navacerrada (1800m altitude) made us first stop and think if we really should go downhill… and we were so happy to have chosen the right decision that we made the same trail twice that day.

Madrid City – Casa de Campo – Cercedilla – Cotos

This post isn’t a real description of a trail rather than a story about two guys riding in the city of Madrid, the nearby outdoor area Casa de Campo and the mountains of Madrid “Sierra de Madrid” (about 1h car ride, 1h20min by train from the capital).

Unfortunately Madrid isn’t really a bike city, but you can still go for it doing some sightseeing by bike and, it’s been two times now that bike-loving friends came over and were amazed by Casa de Campo’s variety of trails, so you should definitely come over and ride with us.
