Dall' Adriatico al Baltico, da Trieste a Riga seconda parte

Seconda parte di 2.200 km. in bicicletta da Trieste a Riga

Katovice: un' edicola con esposti quotidiani e cavolfiori (immagino di propria produzione), un tram che si regge a stenti quasi investe un Suv fresco di concessionaria e oltre una strada ciottolata, una zona commerciale degna di qualsiasi città italiana: supermercato, articoli sportivi, bricolage e giardinaggio. Resto senza parole. Noiosa pianura , dove l'unica cosa da fare è contare i chilometri mancanti a Chestokova. segue...

by Massimo Armati, tour started July 2011, submitted 31 January 2012
language: it

Il mare, la mia insegnante di inglese ed Auschwitz. Tre cose che apparentemente non hanno nulla in comune, ma che in realtà sono le basi che hanno fatto nascere questo ciclo-viaggio. Un viaggio dall' Adriatico al Baltico, la visita ad Oswiecim ( nome polacco di Auschwitz) e un salto a Riga, città natale della mia insegnante di inglese. Cartine alla mano, è stato sufficiente tirate una traccia (o meglio una Riga) aggiungere qualche deviazione turistica ed ecco preparato un viaggio.

Bicycle tours on steep and wonderful ascents of Tirol & South Tirol (with videos)
by Györgyi Gábor, tour started May 2011, submitted 29 January 2012
Europe: Austria, Italy

In May, 2011 I visited Tirol & South Tirol to cycle up to few ascents going above 2000m which I missed and hadn't already cycled. I returned to the wonderful Passo Gardena, which was the 1st pass above 2000m for me, where I cycled 15 years before. AFter Sella I climbed to Rifugio Gardeccia (1949 m), which was Giro d'Italia stage finish 2 days later, and finished the day with the similarly steep, Pampeago / Zischgalm (2000 m). On my last day I visited one of the hardest ascents of Austria, Idalpe (2320 m) with its 13-17% steep kilometers and finished the day with the hardly known mountain road to Belpiano / Schöneben (2105 m), which is situated by the Lago di Resia, not far from the Italian border. I arrived at the camp at 2 am, after cycling the last 2 hours in rain, but feeling well: during the 4 days I cycled up to another 6 new climbs for me and remained only ca. 35 pieces to have the complete collection of the Alps above 2000 m.

Thayatal valley ride in fall 2011
by Iris Mueck, tour started October 2011, submitted 16 October 2011

As every year, we did our late summer ride to the North of Austria: Thayatal valley. Real 'old' Austria, which we like most, particular that stile. This page is made primarily to honor the people who operate one of the last remaining railroad gifts in Austria: The Reblausexpress. We undertake this tour, at least one a year, just to see, how time is changing... The Reblausexpress reminds us on 'old' Austria, a country, which has been beautiful with open and honest people. But time is changing... We still have met open people on our tour, which made it even more enjoyable! Hope you enjoy the pictures. Good luck to all our followers

Zurich-Vienna via the Dolomites

language: en, de, nl

With my one-year old Cannondale bicycle and electric components of BioX, I wanted to cycle a greater range to try my own and my e-bicycle's limits. I've never been to the Dolomites, that's why I cycled through the Alps, Dolomites and the Julian Alps in Slovenia. The weather was great to ride but not good enough to shoot pictures of blue skies.

Danube Bike Path - A bike tour to all the family
by Augusto Lemos, tour started 2008, submitted 30 June 2011
language: pt

Danube river is 2.900 km length, it crosses eight countries and it flows into Black sea. The bike path that follows the river is Europe's most famous and most loved bike trip! Along the way there's a unique natural, cultural and historical richness. Furthermore, the bike path has a lot of infrastructures designed for cyclists and you can chose between north or south bank of the river.

Probably, there aren't many places in the world where travel by bike can be so pleasant and so easy! And where you can enjoy so much the landscape and places to visit.

This trip which I describe was done between Passau (in Germany) and Bratislava, via Vienna.

Lake Constance & Silvretta
by Iris Mueck, tour started June 2011, submitted 16 June 2011
Europe: Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Austria

We have missed that tour (until now). Lake Constance in combination with the Silvretta climb from the Montafon valley. So, we did it.

The lake Constance round trip is a very busy area for bicyclists. Better NOT to go on the vacation period. You will find all kind of sport activities (and nervous car drivers, particular the professional drivers, like bus and taxi cabs). But families with children can cause some more unexpected stop. Expect the unexpected!

Silvretta looks like a total different world. Not so many bicyclists (too steep & too long). But a very good and rather new bike path from Feldkirch to Bludenz, and the very standard‚ one from Bludenz up to Gaschurn.

We have chosen the Silvrettta as a sort of training in order to check our shape for the planned Sella Ronda tour and the Stilfser Joch tour. Enjoy the pictures on our report. Good luck to all the followers!

Cycling the Danube from Passau to Vienna
by Suzanne Gibson, tour started April 2011, submitted 9 May 2011
Europe: Germany, Austria

The first tour of the season - and it was something special. Janos and I decided to get e-bikes. Read my journal to see how we felt about admitting to the limitations our age is imposing and what touring is like with a little help. We chose the choicest morsel of the Danube for our maiden voyage and were lucky with the weather.

Jerry's Alps Tour 2010
by Jerry Nilson, tour started 2010, submitted 17 April 2011

After yet another accident (hit by a car on the downhill and hospitalised with 5 ribs broken at many places, whole in one lung, head concussion, etc.), I had one training ride in two months before leaving for this year's Alps Tour. The tour was, however, very successful and I had a record number of height metres in one day (8272m) on the 277 km ride of the Monte Grappa Challenge. The weather was lovely throughout even if a bit too hot many times. Great places were visited, but I had problems with photos and then dropped my camera on the ground and only had iPhone photos for the second half.

Cycling along the Danube
by Glen and Margaret Netherwood, tour started September 2010, submitted 14 December 2010
Europe: Germany, Austria

The Danube is the second longest river in Europe. A well marked bicycle path (the Donau Radweg) follows the Danube from its source at Donaueschingen in Germany to Vienna in Austria. The path is easy cycling and there is plenty of accommodation at the many towns and villages en route. We started in Eglisau in Switzerland as Zurich is the closest large airport to Donaueschingen.

Braunau (A) to Budapest (H) - Innweg & Donauradweg
by Ant, tour started August 2008, submitted 17 November 2010

Braunau am Inn to Budapest, a wonderful 900 Km tour along the Innradweg and Donauradweg in 11 days of actual riding including loops and various visits to nearby points of interest. No reservations were made in advance to leave us the freedom of choosing where to stop. I was carrying a tent in case of sold-out locations but we never used it once.

Our plans to keep the daily stages in between 60 and 90 Km - except for a couple of stages - proved a perfect choice to maximize the journey. See this, stop there for a yummy bite accompanied by a sparkling apple juice (Apfelsaft gespritz), and find accommodation where deemed practical. ''Pension'' style places with a family bias are the perfect choice for their coziness, the hosts' kindness and the good food to discover for reasonable prices. Return from Budapest by train with our bikes.

Bicycle tour to the North of the Austrian 'forest quarter' (Waldviertel)
by Iris Mueck, tour started October 2010, submitted 20 October 2010
Europe: Austria

Extremly good weather called us to another late fall tour. By train to Retz and further with the 'Reblausexpress' to Drosendorf. Starting late, upon arrival at Drosendorf, we have been heading for Karlstein, whereas we had our lunch. Then we have been riding to Waidhofen an der Thaya. A hidden beauty... Continuing to Zwettel, were we had our night. Zwettel a 'silent' city. Day distance 90 kilometers only. The next morning has been frosty... As nice Zwettel was for a stay, to leave is strange: just high frequent highways The good thing: we hit the Kamptal dam in fall - a wonderful landscape picture has been our award! We have been heading for Krems. Luch at Senftenberg. At Krems we found access to the well known Danube valley bike path. We followed this way down to the suburbs of Vienna. Last stop: Greifenstein (whereas we have been entering the train again...). This days distance: 122 kilometers. Enjoy the pictures! Good luck to all the followers!

A tour to the North Country... (were the winds hit hard the border line...) Hardegg, known as Austria's 'smallest city', was worth to go... I believe, we have been lucky catching the very late end of summer... The tour leads us to the North border (Czech) - only a pedistrian bridge is open for traffic. A romantic side way leaded us to Ciszov. There was a monument seen: The last piece of the 'Iron curtain' - see pictures. Thanks god this time has passed. We had a wonderful lunch at the city of Znojmo. Then, after, some good Czech beer, we travelled home (by bicycle of course) on sideways to Retz. To early to enter the next train back to Vienna... So, we followed the road to Hollabrunn and in the next Minute we caught at a train to our home, Brunn am Gebirge Overall distance of our day ride: 80 kilometers Enjoy the pictures!

Europe: Austria, Italy

Lana, has qualified to be a standard location, we visit every year end of August, begin September... A wonderful place! Bicycling is like to play in a huge fruit garden. Nobody cares, if you take an apple for refreshment... Lana has the advantage of beeing near to the Passo Mendola, it lays on foot of Passo Palade (Gampenpass). Nearby the city of Meran, with a lot of cultures opportunities, e.g. Gardens of Trautmannsdorf. From Lana you may reach the beautiful Passo Lavazze with a 18 % steep climb, and the Sella Ronda. Moreover at Marlings you may reach the train, which can lead you to Spondinig (close to the entrance of the Stelvio Road) and Mals (close to the Passo Rescia). Enjoy the pictures!

This Tour is not so far from our home... The city of Gmünd may get reached in a day ride (round 200 kilometres). We pedalled via the city Krems on Danube, the Krems river Valley North to the city of Zwettl. At Zwettl a wide range of gastronomic offers awaited us. Travelling further to the city Weitra another highlight has been hit: a local brewery.

At Gmünd, just before the Czech boarder we found a hotel. The very next day, we have been riding South to the river Danube. It has been so hot, as our bike tire has been gluing to the melted asphalt... Nearby the Danube, at Waldhausen we found a natural public bath. Right in the in the dam area of the local river. Refreshed we continued. Passing the well known Wachau. Night at a little hotel at Spitz on Danube. Riding home was easy from now on... Enjoy the pictures! Good luck to all the followers!
