À propos de 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 me researching and planning all sorts of envy-inducing routes ...and occasionally getting to ride 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.I enjoy a real mix of cycling - road/touring, gravel/bikepacking, a spot of MTBing and pulling my baby son in his trailer.Currently rediscovering the joy of trail running, especially from where I'm based in the South Downs National Park.

Virtual edition of the (Multisports Management) YHA Trail Run which is a fun but challenging loop starting out at the bridge just past the youth hostel.From there the only way is up ..Itford Hill (always ouch!) then you follow the SDW all the way until the fork at the top of Alfriston where you turn left down the steep chalk path (careful of that slippery green stuff!), left again at the bottom of the hill towards the Old Coach Road which you’ll take and follow all the way back along the bottom of the Downs, up to just above Firle.Just after 10 miles, there's one serious bit of uphill left! Turn left into a small, slightly overgrown path between the trees (fittingly called ‘The Rabbit Track’) and keep climbing back up a steep-getting steeper narrow chalk path until you hit the SDW again on the top of the ridge, turn right and retrace your steps back to the youth hostel. Exhilarating last couple of miles flying back down the hill.Freezing start and majestically muddy at parts on the lower path but fab way to start the day! Thanks Jonny for the great company 🙌

9/10 Sunday adventure - would get muddy again!
Went east for once so no hills today but much muddy marshland to battle with instead. Great fun discovering some of the 1066 Walk from Pevensey and eventually the 1066 Walk Downs Link. 👌
