Up the mountains

Cycling day 3/53 km ~ Bischoshofen – Dorfgastein

So today I’ve had my first camping breakfast and it was great! Not with the new fantastic ground coffee (I’ve got to use the instant one from last year) but with muesli and a marvellous “Wurzelbrot”, a special kind of bread…

As there were heavy rainshowers in the night I had to dry my tent – but this job was quickly done by the help of the sun.

The first 15 kilometers or so were easy as you just follow the river Salzach. But after Schwarzach it went uphill very steep so I had to pull my bike – well, it’s a travel and not a mountainbike… But I knew already this part of the trip as I cycled the Tauernradweg last year – but that time the other way round – so downhill.

The view were outstanding even with this great weather. So I was proud to to have done this part of the trip.

The next highlight was to enter the valley of Gastein – you have to use the Klammtunnel (1,5 km) which is really noisy.

After leaving the tunnel you enter the wonderful valley and it’s now flat, cycling is easy. Finally I’ve reached a really cyclist-friendly campingsite – with a tent for the tents, a roofed restingplace and – two trees for my hammock! 😎

So tomorrow my journey will bring me to Bad Gastein and the train through the Tauern called Tauernschleuse.

This trip is a really relaxing one – I enjoy it so much! See you tomorrow! 🏕🗻🚲
