First downhill session :-)

….ahhhhhh, feel like a child, smiling and smiling and smiling 🙂

I got my new FULLY 🙂 yeaaaahhhhh 🙂

my new bike 🙂

 Oh man, soooo happy 🙂

Went with Alex on a bike tour yesterday to inaugurate my new bike. Biked up the “Rumer Alm”, had a drink up there before we extended our suspension fork’s for the fun part of biking – biking down ;-)… Cool trails through the forrest, challenging but a lot of fun 🙂 For some parts of the trail I had to get down as it was quite slippery, hard turnings, steepness… but most of the trails I managed… We had soooo much fun 🙂 Thxxxx Alex ;-)…

Biketour Kreuzjöchlsee

After the great days in South tyrol, me and Lisi decided to go on a bike tour and explore our beautiful home mountains 🙂

Lovin’ it:-)

We started from Hopfgarten/Brixental (620 m), biked to Westendorf – Kirchberg further to the Wiegalm (1505 m), up to the Kreuzjöchlsee (1700 m) and with some wrong short cuts we arrived Westendorf and Hopfgarten again…

…bike&climb in South Tyrol…

…it’s been another awesome weekend in the mountains 🙂

…went climbing FR afternoon with Erik, wrote one of my seminar works and followed my friends on Saturday to South Tyrol…

On the way down there I had to stop by in the beautiful “Valsertal” where I haven’t been before… Well, there are still a lot of unexplored areas on my to-do list 😉 But on the way there I had to follow the snow… Snowcaptured mountains, there is still a lot of snow on top, as it has been a snowy and rainy month… So I drove into the valley, took out my bike and biked all the way up until the valley ended… Beautiful 🙂

impressive peaks still covered in lots of snow...
Fußstein 3380 m

It’s really incredible how beautiful our nature is :-)!!!!

Back to the car, drove to Brenner and further on to the Jaufenpass, puhhh, still a lot of snow up there and quite chilly and windy… My final destination for tonight was Naturns but I couldn’t get hold of Toni, so I decided to go wild camping… 😉 Found a cool spot near the river in the Schnalstal and stayed there overnight…

Met Toni, Josh and Madeleine for climbing the next day… We went further into the Schnalstal to find a very cool climbing garden… Awesome rock, cool to climb… Of course we weren’t the only people there but great atmosphere and a great day there!

"Marchegg" climbing garden...
...how you shouldn't belay... the chilly-mode...
...would like to ski down there 🙂

After a beautiful day outdoors we went down to the Camping site to cook some dinner… Mmmhhh 😉 Good to have some food 😉 Nice eve with party music from the local soccer team who won the finals… As the campsite was fully booked I decided to stay at my place from the day before…

Next day another climbing session – this time in Juval… Also close to Naturns… Another beautiful climbing garden with a lot of options to climb… Due to the bank holiday we weren’t alone 😉 But great scenery and beautiful surroundings…

...nice...
the Team 🙂

After another great day of climbing, the team went back to the campsite to pack their stuff, I decided to drive in direction Reschenpass and go biking… Haven’t had enough of climbing and was still full of energy… So I found a good spot to start and after a while on the cycling path I saw a sign leading to Switzerland, so the border wasn’t to far away… Challenge for the day 😉 Biking from Italy to Switzerland 😉 One and a half hours later I was crossing the Italian/Swiss border, took a pic there biked back to the car and started my way home… Reschenpass, Reschensee and in the back the impressive mountain range including Ortler, 3905 m

Swiss Alps...
Müstair, Graubünden, Switzerland

What a great weekend – Thxxxx to the team ;-)!!!!
