Bike Tour Pendling, 1537 m

A beautiful sunday… What to do? Hang out and enjoy nature with friends ๐Ÿ™‚

Drove with Lisa to Pia’s home in Kiefersfelden where we met her and a friend and started a biketour from there… Of course there were a lot people out for hiking, biking, so the roads were crowded… But as long as it’s just uphill… Who cares ๐Ÿ˜‰ More important that there are NO people on or in the way when going downhill ;-)…

Around 1000 hm later we arrived the Kufsteiner house at the Pendling at 1537 m… What a stunning view from there! The Zillertaler, Kitzbรผheler Alpen, Hohe Tauern, Kaisergebirge in front of us… Even more impressing as the peaks are still covered in snow…

Thxxxx Pia, Lisa & Paule for the beautiful day ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Salfeins…

Our goal today… Salfeins up on 2000m with the amazing view of the Kalkkรถgel… We started our tour in Grinzens and followed the road in direction Kemater Alm… Before the Kemater Alm to the right constantly up the mountain… My condition today: BAD ๐Ÿ˜‰ So it was quite challenging all the time uphill and no time to rest on a flat bit… Didn’t matter, sometimes you have to fight to get rewarded ๐Ÿ˜‰ Right at the Salfeins-Alm where we took a rest it started to rain and that even though there was a mixture of blue sky and clouds ๐Ÿ˜‰ Half an hour late, having carried my 15kg bike all the way up we finally reached the top… Rewarded by a beautiful view we got ready for the downhill what we both were looking for ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s a video section of the downhill… Enjoy and thxxxx Fredi for a great day!!!!

Rofangebirge…

My studies are already finished so I have loads of time… Time to spend it with friends on the mountains ๐Ÿ™‚ How lucky I am ๐Ÿ™‚

Our aim today of Pia and me… Hochiss mountain, 2.299 m, the highest peak in the Rofangebirge… We started our tour in Maurach at the lakeside of the Achensee and hiked all the way up to the Hochiss… We were awarded by a stunning surrounding, mountains as far as we could see… ๐Ÿ™‚ Amazing ๐Ÿ™‚

On the trail of the Giro d’Italia…

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Powder in May…:-)

…unbelievable but true – powder in May!!!! 15th of May 2011!!!!!ย  Snow was forecasted for the weekend, so me and Claudsch decided to enjoy the last valid day of the Tirol Snow Card… Though the visibility wasn’t that great, we had sooooo much fun shreddin’ the powder ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is a short video cut by myself…

The conditions were sooooo good on Sunday, so we added another day and had great conditions and fun today!!!!! Powder on the 17th of May ๐Ÿ™‚
