Tzouhalem: Ride Report

Post by schouten » Sat Jul 06, 2019 6:24 pm

UPDATE

Tzouhalem is quite rideable for CX. Some good climbs and blue/purple trails that are accessible. I didn't get to see enough of the area to be certain (ride cut short due to injury), but it seemed to have enough trails to make a good CX destination.

And since it does not require an early ferry, it is fall friendly :lol:

----------------
Not sure, if anyone has seen this video before. What's possible on a cross bike is amazing!

P.S. I am Tzouhalem bound tomorrow (Hence the video inspiration). Will return with a ride report.

Whoops, sorry JT. Since we are not connected on Strava:

You missed the details about who had the crash. It was our crash-prone banana supplier that took a spill.

I didn't take any pics of the carnage as he was pretty shook up and in no mood for the paparazzi. Take my word for it that it was a bad crash and he is lucky to walk away from it with only a fractured helmet to replace.

I am sorry to hear that, Ron. I hope and trust that a cracked helmet was the very worst of it.

Yes, and he was on his downhill mountain bike so his cross bike is just fine 🚲👍

We were quite the eclectic mix of cyclists: Downhill MTB, Hardtale MTB, and CXer (in Lycra). We turned a few heads on the trails. Mwahahahaha!
