Dtube - Downhill Offroad Tricycles & Mountain Biking, Czech Republic

Dave On Arrival @daveonarrivalOctober 2018 · 2 min read

Well, this is a new one for me. Offroad tricycles with no pedals? Czech Republic has several mountain sports that I have never known about and this is one of them. You'll see another of them in a video coming soon. So this tricycle, called a buginy, is only meant to go downhill. And since the tires are so big and deeply treaded, it's perfect for going down ski runs. Not the black diamond ones, that would be scary, but the beginner and intermediate slopes. So that's just what we did.

As a part of the TBEX conference in Ostrava, the Czech Tourism board hosted press trips for most of the bloggers and vloggers who attended the conference. I got my first choice to the Jeseniky Mountains in the northeast of the country... because adventure! I'll be putting up more videos of the adventures I went on there.

Our first night of the trip was spent at the Koprivna Resort, a ski resort in the winter and adventure park in the summer. They have a whole bunch of activities in the summer but I only had time to do two of them: the buginy, and the mountain bike.

I'll be honest, both were super bumpy rides, especially the tricycle because with the bike, you can at least lift your butt off the seat so you're not absorbing as much of the shock. With the tricycle, there is no such option, all your weight is in the seat which is held on by velcro. That turned out to be a problem for me since my trike's seat kept coming undone and I was almost dragging my bohunkus along the gravelly path. (I don't really refer to my butt as a bohunkus but I stole it from Hank the Cowdog and it's just fun to say) I enjoyed the mountain bike more because it was more dangerous and less jarring on my body.

Would you give the buginy a run? (Assuming your butt wouldn't get dragged)

This was so fun!!! Even I don't like sport so much I would go for the first one but not that intense when you get into the woods haha. I 100% not gonna make it to SteemFest so your destination after poland would be where?? You know it! hahaha Can't wait to meet and hang out!!! :D


Well now I'm sad. You won't be at Steemfest? :(


I didn't get the ticket and that would actually cost twice the price more. As I told you the exact number in dm. I would actually rather keep that to spend for a few more month before really have to cash steem out haha or keep it for the cafe as I so so want to do! I will anyways see you in Thailand so I no worry haa!


Ugh. I wish I could afford to buy and give away tickets to the people I want to be there. Maybe next year.

I REALLY need to get back to Asia, my very soul has been craving it for a year now. I'll keep you updated if my savings can get me there.


So hoping it can! :)
