Just back from spending a great week with 2 of my teammates from Cho Oyu and Mount Everest, Czech Karel Masek and Californian Mike Chapman. Passionate about mountain biking, Karel took us to some of his favorite single-track trails in the Jazarske mountains of Czech Republic. It was a blast, literally. Our 1st day there Romana Cirkovska joined us and we did about 50km of single-track alone and another 35km getting in and out of the hills. Nine hours of pain and glory. What an extraordinary beautiful forest.
More days of biking, hiking and splurging on great Czech cuisine. Karel and Romana were absolute wonderful hosts. We lived like royalty.
