Mountain Biking Collection by Shimano

And that's a wrap — the Shimano #makeyourmark Challenge 2020 is over! Thank you very much for your participation, we got absolutely flooded with great entries!

We received a ton of great photos and exciting routes from relaxed scenic rides to hair-raising enduro/downhill extravaganzas. The selection of the best ten entries was not an easy task, accordingly. In the end, however, the following users were chosen:

Steffen Bahner from Germany
David Draußenkind from Germany
Hannes from Austria
B@ from Switzerland
Marcel Hendriks from the Netherlands
Bartek from Poland
Phil from United Kingdom

    Autumn - is it possible to tackle over 200 km of MTB routes in wet and cold conditions? This question arose out of boredom, frustration and bad weather. And the answer is yes - it works, but it's tough. Julian and I were on the track for 30 hours. We drove through mud, moisture, frost and darkness but also with sunshine, on beautiful forest paths and with great views. Our bikes survived and after this tour there was no more energy for a bad mood.

    This tour offers a lot of variety, both on the route with some great trails and a demanding sliding passage, as well as scenic, and was awarded by Shimano as one of the 10 most beautiful collections for

    On a bike tour in the middle of November? Yes that works and how. As a starting point, we have chosen the parking lot at the Hotel Wetterhorn (this is not quite as expensive as the one in the village).
    At the start it goes up to the large Scheidegg. From there we could finally ride in the sun and escape the great shadow of the Eiger. A short stretch on the large hiking trail and you're off to the panorama trail. This is already almost suitable for prams, but it is always better than the 2m version. So we follow the path and it becomes even more natural. So we reach the First and treat ourselves to the first cliff walk. Today is really a pleasure because we were the only ones. So also on the way to the Bachalpsee and actually, after the ascent we met a few lost ones.
    After a rest on this beautiful piece of earth, we set out to rock the Bachalp Trail. And yes, we enjoyed it. As it should be, towards the end of the season we stopped pushing the tube and simply enjoyed stones, waves, thresholds, chunks and steps.
    We have attached the Nodhalten and Hubeltrail and we look back on a great and varied day tour.

    Initially I was going to take 70km trip, but in the end I did just something above 50k l, with 900 m climbed. Trail is 99% forest with some technical climbs and descents as it goes thru some hiking paths. There is 1 or 2 places to recover and resupply.
    In the end I go thru Reja street, which is one of the most famous cycling places in Tricity and at the end it has handy pressure washing machine so I took of all the mud that my bike was covered.
