Mtb, Tal-Blata, Malta

Rode from Sliema via Pace Ville and Ras il-Qrejten to Tal-Blata, the area east of Mellieha, north-east of Xemxija.. Really nice and varied terrain for mountainbiking, stone and gravel trails, dirt trails, and old salt-pools hacked into the rocks next to the sea that were great fun to play around in for drops and jumps.. Beatiful views.. With all the elevation up and down it is pretty strenous to bike around there.. Went up to the peak with Fort Campbell and then back down again.. Fell over handlebars and on to the side a few times as usual, but no major damage or me or the bike.. Ride back to Sliema included the regular milkshake at Bahar, ic-Caghaq Bay..
