Tonight was Tuesday so we went out for a race bike ride. Jon had just spent two weeks in England enjoying English food and beer while Heidi and I had just cycled 1000km. Poor Jon!

It took us exactly 3 hours and I had an average pulse of 113bpm. Being fit is fun.

This years "let's do a bit of biking" tour was to Monaco.

We cycled over the mountains to Liechtenstein, on over the Alps to Lake Como and then on past Lake Lugano to Lake Maggiore where we had a day off and went sailing -

Rested, we continued on to a meeting with coffee in Turin and then over the Mediterranean Alps in to France and on to Monaco.

The whole holiday we cycled a little over 1000 kilometres and climbed more than 15000 meters.

170528 Steingaden 100km ride
A week on Thursday we are leaving for Monaco so we thought we better check that our backsides were up to it. We had no plan except to get 100km done.

The weather was stunning and it was a ride that reminds you just how gorgeous this part of the world is. Blue sky rivers and lakes. Green fielsd and forests and snow and castles above everything. Most of the way on cycle tracks and unused roads - with one 50 meter climb on grit up to the Allatsee.

A fantastic day with a well deserved ice at the end.

104 km and 1161 meters of climbing. Track is at

Thursday evening and there were 22 people at the Alpspitzhalle for biking. We split in to three groups and five of us followed Wear up to Freyburg, down a trail, up to Pfronten and down another trail.

For the first time this year we could actually sit outside at the Bistro.
