Bike traveling: Oleta, Florida mountain biking

2 Comments 24 November 2010

If you have been following us in the last months, you’ve seen us riding up and down, roads and forests but with our last trip to test drive the new Merida models, I really found the spark to do some proper off-road riding again. It really doesn’t help that the web is full of awesome videos like this one above, showing tracks in Oleta River State Park mountain bike trail system in North Miami Beach, Florida, USA.

Notice those words? A frakkin’ bike trail system. We have some tracks and trails here in Finland, mostly built by the riders themselves in the course of a long time, but I really hope we’d get some funding to let the guys do it properly.

There might even be a chance to buy this Jamis Dakar fully from a friend..

Anyway, getting interested in forest rambling means that I’ll “have” to get a mountain bike again, and I might build a full-suspension marathon runner on a budget. We’ll talk more about that in the future.

About Comingthru

Coming Thru (or Coming Through - as that URL was taken) is a daily updated bike magazine - a collection of writings and links that relate to biking in its every form. The idea started from when Maarten met Markus decided to finally start collecting the things we like about bikes and talk about our everyday adventures in dodging moving objects at high speeds.The site is run by a collage of cyclists, most notably by Canadian Johanna MacDonald, Belgian Maarten Patteeuw and Finnish Markus Sandelin.

It all started in the spring of 2010, after a record breaking snowy winter when Markus bought a house 25 kilometers from the office and decided to handle the commuting with a bicycle. It turned out the bike wasn’t up to standards for that kind of stress and the first weeks were more tragicomic than glorious. Thus the idea began to brew to actually document this journey.
