Last week the Giro d’Italia was guest in Lienz. One stage was from Spengenberg up to the Grossglockner “Hochalpenstrasse”. Unbelievable 167 km’s and 3 passes inbetween… I guess all of the people involved in the sport know that those professional cyclists wouldn’t be able to conquer those tough routes without “help”. Doping in combination with medical support, without that, this maximum performance wouldn’t be possible. Still, it’s unbelievable how the cyclists manage this performance!
Me and a friend were watching the cyclists flying up the hill and two days later we started our own tour. Though me and Melli weren’t prepared to conquer the Grossglockner-Hochalpenstreet, at least we tried 😉 Both of us don’t have lot’s of km’s in our feet, so it’s always a challenge… We started in Lienz, biked with our road bikes over the Iselsberg, further to Heiligenblut and all the way up to Kasereck on 1908 m. Beautiful weather and the amazing surroundings accompanied us. Biking around the highest peak of Austria – wonderful :-)… Around 93 km’s and 1500 hm’s later we were back in Lienz… Another beautiful day 🙂
