A good adventure has the right balance between thrill and fun, skill and risk as well as the known and unknown.
I've been mountainbiking for 15 years, but ever since I had a bad crash in 2013 where I ended up in the hospital needing knee surgery, there are trails I won't ride.
The Teara Line is one of them.
I took Photo #2 of an unknown biker on the Teara Line from the cable car. If you don't want to end up in the hospital, you should ride these tracks with an Enduro mountainbike as well as complete protective gear such as full-body armor and a full-face helmet (the kind motorcyclists wear).
The Teara Line as well as other downhill tracks in the Soelden "Bike Republic" are too adventurous for me. The Teara Line is a man-made 5.2 kilometer long track with 130 turns over 575 altitude meters. It's steep and has sharp curves as well as the wooden ramps (Photo#1) - many bikers love to get airborn before going into the next curve.
On to the next adventure...Fat Bikes!
Two years ago we had a fun adventure in Germany's Black Forest when we rented "fat mountainbikes" with electric motors. The tires are about the same width as a motocross bike and give much more stability in rocky terrain.
The next photo is the same trail from a different perspective (the more scary perspective) the steepness isn't well captured in either photo.
The thick tires and heavy-duty shock absorpers gave me the sensation of floating over the rocky trails which made it a lot of fun. Having a motor to charge up a steep incline with the heavy bike was thrilling. Normally, it's real torture to get up such a hill on your own.
