STAURBY, DENMARK – KID FRIENDLY – APPROX. 6KM.
We stopped at a nice little parking lot to try the first trail of the trip. We did not know anything about this trail, but we found it on the singletracker app, and was a nice break after about an hour of driving from Aarhus.
Katrine took of, and if you are following the red trail, it is a pretty rough start. A little bit of technical elements (drops and step-ups) and some short steep climbs. It has some interesting nature, where you ride through these avenues with trees close to you on both sides – pretty cozy and beautiful.
Some of the red parts are pretty technical (rock gardens and jumps), but you can opt for the blue version also. After a while there is this “bowl”, where you go up and down a lot of times to do some steep climbs and nice descents (some with jumps).
Katrine was not impressed with the direction guidance at this part, but it was quite fun.
Jakob took the girls out, and they really enjoyed the blue part of the trail. We did not ride it all, but the sections we tried was really good fun, and definitely rideable for the girls. Small climbs and small descents and a lot of turns.
And when they eventually got tired, it was really easy to find the way back to Molly on the parking lot.
The parking lot was nothing special, but it right next to the forest and had a public toilet. It was definitely possible to stay there for the night, but we had decided to move on and find a spot near the ocean.
