170716 Tarscher Trail
Second day in Vinschgau. Wera had a plan but the cable car only took bukes up before nine or after three o'clock so we needed a new plan.

Decided on the Tarscher Trail. All the up hill was with a chair lift and then an S1-S2 grade trail back downhill.

5km and no uphill climbing. Track is at

170706 Schnitzlertal
Wera and Gremml, Bettina and I.
It was very hot when we left but once the sun went down and we were in the trees, it was pleasant.

Stopped off at the Sorg Alp on the way home for a beer and a few "schnapps". There we met all the others from the other two groups who had also stopped for a drink.

41km with 889 meters of climbing.

170704 Füssen
Tuesday evening and the three of us went cycling. Jon had already decided on the Hopfensee - Füssen - Vils tour so we did that at a relatively gentle pace.

On the way home Heidi suggested swimming. Jon and I stripped off and jumped in while Heidi talked to her vet.

45km and 472 meters of climbing.

170702 Reuttewanne
Between the rain today there was a dry spell so we headed off up the Reuttewanne. Unfortunately I was "on duty" today and received an alert on my mobile phone so had to return home to fix it. Just as we got home, it began to rain again.

14km and 505 meters of climbing.

170629 Herzer Hütte
It was Thursday evening but it was raining a bit during the day so one after another everyone wrote "I'm not coming." In the end it was Heidi, Wera and I. We waited half an hour until it was dry and then cycled up to the Herzer Hütte and down the Bayerstetten trail.

Only 13km and 558 meters of climbing but better than sitting at home.

170627 Marktoberdorf
Jon was very definite this evening. "Flat tour to Marktoberdorf." It is not actually that flat but I suppose he meant "No mountains!"

Just over 50 km and including a swim in the last lake we passed before getting home. There are worse ways to spend an evening.

And then red wine and Baileys.

54km with 654 meters of climbing. Track is at

170620 Jochpass
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.
