About Mount_Magdalena

"Schau, die schöne Welt!"('Look, the beautiful world!' – said my 3-year old self marvelling at a local mountain view.)I look after Collection content here at komoot so you might see my team and myself researching and planning all sorts of envy-inducing routes ...and occasionally getting to ride and hike some of them too! I'm originally from Austria but am currently living on England's sunny(ish) South Coast.Whether it's cycling, trail running or hiking — spending time outdoors is my life therapy! I started cycle commuting when living in London and trying to save money on public transport. However, I found my real passion for cycling a few years later. First by becoming part of a close-knit fixed gear community when I lived in the North West and then through experiencing that amazing sense of freedom when I bought my first road bike in 2013.My once-in-a-lifetime adventure on a bike was undoubtedly touring the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route (south to north) in 2016.Generally, I enjoy a real mix of cycling - on road/off road and pulling my baby (now toddler 🤪) son in his trailer.Currently seriously rediscovering the joy of trail and ultra running, especially from where I'm based in the South Downs National Park. 💚
