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

Oittans-Pirttibacka-Brobacka-Pirttibacka-Klockarmalmen-Oittans.

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.

Firmaliiga Pirttimäki

The third and final Firmaliiga event this autumn was at Pirttimäki. Fairly easy course.

OK to #1 but then too much zigzag to #2. #3 and #4 are the best splits - mostly running along paths.

Out from #4 south towards the path through the woods - slowly. Sticking to the path would have been better? Again not so great down the hill towards #6.

Firmaliiga Velskola

A lot of running along roads on 1-2, 2-3, and 3-4. About 20th place on #4 before any slow parts or mistakes.

No real plan or inspiration on 4-5, just slowly along the straight line. Stupid mistake on 6 where I looked for the control on the wrong hill before finding the same path I took on 1-2.

Firmaliiga final event in Pirttimäki next week.

Firmaliiga 2018, Velskola, E-rata

Itärastit Latokartano

Itärastit fall-season opening - more to follow until early October.

More paths and less forest both to #4 and #5 might have been faster. Lower, rather than higher, route to #11 looks better. Not much else going on orienteering-wise.

Next is firmaliiga 2/3.
