Giro di Lemon Soda

Amico Stefan and me want to ride around in the southern alps, so we take the train to Trento and cycle south to Bassano del Grappa. Next day sees us climbing Monte Grappa on an old military road from WW1 heading to Belluno. Going north into the heart of the Dolomites makes us feel the change from the flat land in the south to the big mountains. There the idea is born to follow the way through the alps to the northern end, the flat land of our hometown. An intense experience about change of nature and people, countries and culture, lonely roads and horrible traffic, hellish heat and the help of a dozens of lemon sodas …
Credits to Manuel from Lost in Prealps who contributed the idea and the track over Monta Grappa.

Berge in Flammen

A cool title is paramount! So, „Berge in Flammen“ was a movie directed by Luis Trenker, story is located in the Dolomites, but Mr.Trenker was not allowed to shoot there, so the movie was made 1931 in the Karwendel. We go there. We want to cross from west to east through the Karwendel. Joga from Hamburg, Ulf and me. Lots of gravel, so much gravel, more gravel we ever had. Was a very nice weekend.
