I was looking forward to riding somewhere I have never been. Indian Summer was just a great opportunity to discover a new place to ride. I couldn’t wait to ride one of the top’s Slovakia bike park of Malino Brdo and explore its surroundings.
Shredding the bike park.
Malino Brdo bike park is suitable for everybody that’s into downhill bike riding. It combines the natural terrain together with wooden obstacles and offers high quality for all kinds of riders. Park offers 10 trails and more than 10km of the most technical DH track to a Blue Zamat flow trail. I spent the whole afternoon at the bike park shredding every line, berm and jump I could find.
The next day I planned to go out of the bike park and try to explore the surroundings of Great Fatra. Start of the day was at Podsucha village. Here begins 8km climb with an elevation gain of about 900m which leads to the Smerkovnica hotel resort, where you can refresh and relax. After the exhausting climb, I followed the route to Skalna Alpa where I enjoyed a beautiful scenery. On the ridge of the peak Rakytov, I found excellent and fast climbs which were changing to beautiful short technical downhills. I couldn’t help myself to stop and soak up the views onto the amazing scenery of National Park Great Fatra.
