Apuseni mountains/ YAMAHA TENERE meeting 2012

This is the continuation of the Transalpina tour, which was the starting point for the “Tenerist” convention in the Apuseni Mountains. I take this opportunity to thank the owners of Yamaha Tenere motorcycles for having invited me to participate too.
Aceasta tura este continuarea celei de pe Transalpina. Transalpina a fost startul intalnirii "teneristilor" in muntii Apuseni. Multumesc pe aceasta cale detinatorilor de motociclete Yamaha Tenere pentru faptul ca m-au invitat sa particip si eu.

After a “warm-up day” on the Transalpina came two days through the Apuseni Mountains. On the first day we completed the Cluj – Belis - Doda Pilii –Rachitele – Huedin - Cluj route.
Dupa o "zi de incalzire" pe Transalpina, au urmat doua zile prin muntii Apuseni. In prima zi s-a facut traseul Cluj- Belis- Doda Pilii- Rachitele- Huedin - Cluj


The first stop, at Belis, where we ate. It poured for an hour
Primul popas, la Belis, unde am luat masa. O ora a plouat torential



Another stop, at Doda Pilii.

Raspberries galore.

On day two the first thing we visited was the fortress at Rimetea, Alba County, also known as Trascaului fortress.
In a doua zi primul punct vizitat a fost cetatea Rimetea, jud Alba sau cetatea Trascaului
  
We rode our bikes almost all the way up to the fortress.
S-a urcat cu motocicletele pana aproape de cetate

Piatra Secuiului (Szekler’s Rock) can be seen in the distance.
In departare se vede Piatra Secuiului


It is said that Rimetea is the place where the sun rises twice, and that’s because Szekler’s Rock, which overshadows Rimetea, is so close and so high, that even after the sun has risen in the morning, Rimetea is still in its shadow, although it is daylight outside. Then, after it’s had time to rise still further in the sky, the sun peeks from behind Szekler’s Rock, practically rising a second time, to light Rimetea village as well.

Se spune ca Rimetea este locul in care soarele rasare de doua ori. Si asta pentru ca Piatra Secuiului, care strajuieste Rimetea, este atata de aproape si atata de inalta, incat chiar si dupa ce rasare soarele dimineata, Rimetea este inca in umbra, desi afara e lumina. Apoi, dupa ce are timp sa se mai ridice un pic de pe cer, soarele se iveste de dupa Piatra Secuiului, rasarind pentru a doua oara pentru a lumina si satul Rimetea.


In this picture you can see the three of us who did not have the courage to ride their bikes up to the fortress, because the incline was very steep. To be honest, I was one of them ;)))))

In imagine sunt cei trei care nu au avut curajul sa urce pe motocicleta pana la cetate, pentru ca era foarte abrupta panta. Sincer unul din ei am fost si eu ;)))))
  

Speaking of how steep the incline was: it took 5 of us to maneuver a bike in order to turn it around so it could descend from the fortress…

Apropo de cat de abrupta a fost panta: 5 oameni au trebuit sa manevreze o motocicleta, ca sa fie intoarsa sa poata cobora de la cetate ...
