Cindrel bike packing adventure reloaded. I think this is the third year we do this track and not only the trails keep us coming back, I think the refuge is. The way it looks and where its located has something to it. And doing the trip this late in the Autumn, when the probability of finding someone at the refuge is low, makes this more desirable. This time we did it in the same manner as third years ago, Cindrel mountains bikepacking trip, but the weather was top. A bit windy but only to make thing more adventurous. Not to many peoples on the mountain this time of the year and that suits us well. We saw a guy with a 4×4 going down from Cindrel peak, only to find him turn over on the trail to the refuge. What a crazy dude to try this track whit a 4×4 car 😲… didn’t thought he was gone make it down but with a little help from us, he managed… we pushed him to the refuge and a bit beyond but from there, via con Dios my friend… 😆 The night at the refuge was top, all alone we started a fire under the 1k stars hotel. We had lots of food and some Romanian quality beverage 🥃🤩 just enough to get us worm and quite cheerful… In the refuge was quite cozy and we had a good sleep but wake up early in the morning. Next day, breakfast with leftovers and then pushbike back to the ridge of Cindrel mountains, if we could call it a ridge. We did a descent to Canaia refuge on the other side and then straight back to Paltinis. On our way back we climb Batrana peak and then made the fun and gnarly descent to Paltinis. This trail is long very Enduro like and gets easier at the bottom. All ended up with a beautiful descent to Curmatura, from Oncesti peak, after meeting up with Alex, a good friend of ours from Sibiu. Check out his YT channel right here: La vale! This is the receipt for a terrific weekend ;).
