Michi, Michi and me meet at midnight. We want to ride to Lake Garda in one day. 400 km with 3.000 m climbing. Chamois creme recommended.
First stop on first famous climb Kesselberg. Darkness. No cars. Only a fat badger.
Near sunrise we go down to Austria, valley of river Inn.
Gas-station-breakfast-stop at 6:00 in Innsbruck.
Leaving Innsbruck. City with great background. We will come back.
Climbing up to Brennerpaß on old Römerstraße.
Top of Brennerpaß, trespassing italian border. Rainy, windy.
Valley of river Eisack.
Reaching Bozen. Pizza for the riders, battery charging for the Garmins.
From Tyrol to Trento.
Here we go. Transalp quick version realized.
Now you know the game: some hills are steep, this one is steeper – for horses too fooking steep …
Again a puzzling title. Does it mean „after long winter all cyclists are fat, but i am fatter“? No, it means with upcoming summer the flies and bugs become fatter. I know that, because i often ride with my mouth open.
Puzzling title, eh? Means: riding first time this year short/short with new bar tape – legs are white, arms are white, bar tape is whiter.
April 21st. Rainy. Cold. Long bibs. Smells like autumn. Bit early this year. Cross season starts!
First ride this year with short bibs. Feels like being totally naked. Was a long winter.
First attempt to make the Spitzingsee this year – closed. Danger of avalanches.
So back to Tegernsee and the good old Achenpaß to good old Sylvensteinsee.
Todays crew: Michi, Michi and me.
