Korso MTB

Some MTB-trails in Korso today. Still some snow in places. Around 14km.

Pirttibacka 10k feat. Giant's Kettle

The loop marked with yellow signs from Pirttimäki is about 8 km, so we did some bonus-metres to the south of Sorlampi to get a full 10k. As a bonus we looked at the Giant's Kettles just north of Sorlampi (arrow-marks-the-spot).
Although the weather is warm, around +6C maybe, It's fairly dark around 16-17 already 🙁


Might be some of the last weekends this season for biking in decent weather... Mostly easy but hilly gravel paths from Oittaa heading north to Solvalla, then back south along the main road.

Poronpolun Polkaisu

Poronpolun polkaisu is an easygoing MTB event at Räyskälä in Loppi. A bit of gravel roads, lot's of easy to ride good trails, and some short technical bits. They say that the trails are some of the best for MTB in southern Finland!

Time-lapse for garmin virb camera. Battery lasted about 2 hours. Go see more and better Poronpulku videos on youtube.
Organizers map and GPX-route. We rode most of it but didn't have time (and energy?) for the westward loop. Garmin Edge 520 battery died about 3/4ths into the ride so the last bit is recorded with the 735xt instead.

Iltarastit Luukki

A few weeks of Iltarastit on Sundays now, before the end of the season.

A bit of searching inside the control circle on 23, then from 15 about 45-degrees wrong direction towards 38. Just before 39 a turn downhill and had to circle back to the control.

Iltarastit Paloheinä night-o

A bit windy but quite warm and good temperature for running. Fairly easy course but it's always more fun in the darkness 😉

Luukki MTB 23k

A bit of rain but not too bad, quite warm.

Most of the narrow trails on the northern/westward part of the route were too difficult for me to ride. The beginning and end were on gravel-roads so no worries there.

Luukki MTB 'half-course' ca 23 km.

Iltarastit Pirttimäki, night-o

First night-orienteering this fall!

4V course, Iltarastit Pirttimäki 2018-09-10

Pirttibacka MTB 25k


Maybe Luukki MTB next week?

Itärastit paloheinä

Fairly easy course avoiding the big hill. Bad direction out of #1 towards #2, otherwise mostly OK.

Warm +21C or so.
