We love mountains

My thoughts and experiences cycling, snowboarding and travelling around the world

About

We love mountains. For the past decade we have worked and traveled in various places around the world, exploring mountains as we go. We try to spend our time mountain biking, cycle touring, snowboarding and ski touring. This blog is intended to share these experiences and some of my favourite pictures.
