Group rides in Vilnius during spring?

Standartinė Ville » Tre Lap 27, 2013 13:59:13

Labas,

I am coming to Vilnius to boost my lithuanian language studies in spring for four months. I am an avid mountain biker and I am contemplating should I bring my mountain bike with me. Is there in Vilnius mtb-groups which I could ride with? I usually ride technical xc or trail as they nowadays call it. I am not too fast or too furius :mrgreen: . I am not a competitor, it's all about fun for me.

Thank you

We do not have alps but Vilnius is hilly city and there are lot of good trails and no need to go somewhere out of the city with a car. I think you will find some one who can ride with you - from casual riders for fun (like me :-D ) to very competitive riders who train for competitions.

Thank you for all responses! I'll be taking my 29" with me in February. In Southern Finland we don't have snow, so I had a chance to make holiday greetings for my riding buddies. I thought I could share it here also. Merry Christmas and Happy new year.

Hei,

that's an elaborate video, thanks for sharing! You have such beautiful nature and good trails down there :)

It might be a good idea to bring spike tires as usually we've still got a lot of snow/ice here in February/March.

I don't know about group rides in Vilnius during winter/early spring period, but me and my girlfriend (sometimes some other guys join us too) go for a ride every second day, so you are welcome to join when you will be around. Just message me.

Have a great festive season!

Hi,

In Southern Finland we haven't had any snow this winter. How about in Vilnius? Do you have snow and/or ice? Are spike tires necessary? I am asking, because I have only one Ice Spiker and I am ordering spares for our tandem from Bike-Discount, so if it is slippery in Vilnius, I could order one now.

Thank You!
Ville

No snow yet. It's supposed to come in a week or two though. See http://meteo.lt/oru_prognoze.php for forecasts.

Ville, there's an FB group to set up rides in Vilnius, both road and MTB:
