Mur Radweg Tour
by Iris Mueck, tour started July 2017, submitted 6 July 2017
Europe: Austria

There is no time to stall. we fade away too young, so much left ondone... Reason of the tour: I am still working on my white spots of my bicycling career... ;-)

Whenever you check the Internet you may read: "this tour is easy, as always flat, roads are paved all the way through, for familes, etc." Well, the tour comprises at least hundred poisoned stiffer rises (in German language "giftige Anstiege"). Most of them just 500 yards long, but... energy consuming.

we started a Tamsweg. Flat. Just before Murau the first gravel roads on forest roads (but compacted gravel, that's the good thing). And here we had our first stiffer rises... And they never ended. Just before Graz the last one...

Passo Gavia
Bicycle tour to Switzerland and Italy
by Iris Mueck, tour started June 2016, submitted 27 June 2016

Time for a bicycle chillout... We are still riding our bicycles, working on climbs we missed to do before. So, we made the Albula summit at Switherland. With very scenic views to the Rhatische Bahn (railroad). Then the Majoija summit, with a wonderful downhill to the ancient Italian city of Chiavenna. Before Chiavenna, a shady bike trail leaded us right into the city. Extrem friendly people. Mostly speaking German. The call themself "Grenzgänger" - which means they are working in Switzerland...

And then... the Spluga summit. Another bicyclist warned us, saying "this is another liga". He was so right. But views, we never will forget. Enjoy the pictures and the rport. Good luck to our followers.

1st day: day distance round 70 kilometers; accommodation at Valbella starting at the Austrian railroad station Feldkirch. Heading for Switzerland which is just some miles apart. Riding along the Rhine river towards Landquart and Chur. We climbed up the Lenzerheide summit an found accomodation at Valbella

Bike Zellerrain - Hike Oetscher
by Iris Mueck, tour started May 2014, submitted 30 May 2016
Europe: Austria

It's time to report a tour from our homeland Austria. Since my last report concerning the Puerto Rico tour, there was silence in my reports. I am not getting any younger, any more mobil. I ride with pain, hike like an Egyptian... :-) Youngsters hike that mountain like ants. Me? I am a sort of limping around.

Well, we made the bigger distance by train (Vienna to Mariazell). But then: biking... The Zellerrainstrasse is a sort of challange. Starting at the train station Mariazell, we have been riding down to the lake Erlaufsee. A wonderful and paved path lead us there. The Zellerrainstrasse stated right on the Westend of the lake. Winding up to a height of 1.121 meters. The old Zellerrain road has been a gravel road with a pitch level of 22 % Today, the road is paved and the pitch level round between 15+ % I have been on my last sprocket ring. Enjoy the pictures of my report. Good luck to our followers!

Our 2015 fall bicycle tour round the Austrian foothills
by Iris Mueck, tour started October 2014, submitted 28 October 2015
Europe: Austria

You may see we had wonderful biking weather in Austria. With doing a part by train saved our energy. We started with the local train ''Mariazellerbahn'' at St.Poelten (Austria) heading to the town Winterbach, which is already rather elevated (round 500 meters). After a short ride, we found an inviting restaurant. As it was noon, we decided to to stay for a beer. Riding further leaded to an elevation of 1.110 meters. We have seen the first snow of this year. A colorful fall day was our award of all the little climbing's. The overall distance of our tour was just sweet 110 kilometers. Long enough to ride the last kilometers in dark. And the night has felt on the setting sun. Some pictures are exciting some not ... Anyway, you may see colorful fall pictures from our short Austrian ''Indian summer''. Enjoy the pictures and my report. Good luck to our followers.

Bicycle tour Passau to Vienna (2014)
by Iris Mueck, tour started September 2014, submitted 25 September 2014
Europe: Austria

We did it again...: as nearly every year, we did the fall bicycle tour Passau (Germany) to Vienna (Austria). This time our Group has been complete. Raimund, vulgo the Chefe has joined us. He came with the train to Passau. We have carried one of our bicycles to Passau. After many complaints, he accepted this bicycle.

Our faith have been not so good this day, as Heide was in charge to carry Raimund's bicycle to Passau. Unfortunately she left it at Wels were we changed the train. The bicycle has been leaning for hours unwatched at the platform. At Passau: a big surprise: of course - no bicycle for Raimund. Telephone companies made a good business. Our first attempt to contact the German trains station officer was "we have no contact to the Austrian railroad company - everything is automated"... . Finally Heide found a guy at the ticketing counter who has private contact with a guy at Wels, were the bicycle actually was. Success! his guy checked, and the bicycle was still there. Unbelievable in this times we life. Heide went back with one of the next trains to Wels, picked up the bike and followed us to our accommodation.

Our tour continued smoothly the next days in extreme good weather condition. We have modified our tour a little in order to check for "new" accommodations. Enjoy the taken pictures and the report. Good luck to our followers.

Tour of ENG-FR-SP-IT-SLO-CRO-AUS-SUI-GDR-NETH
by Michael Simmons, tour started June 2008, submitted 13 December 2013

I always dreamed of bicycling through Europe and climbing as many of the famous climbs of the Tour de France and Giro Italia as possible. My tour ended up being for almost 10 weeks, 3020 miles/4860 kilometers, and I pedaled through 10 countries. I loved the entire tour but 2 aspects stand out: 1)France stands out for my favorite cycling, for the amazing secondary road system and because I got to climb, the Tourmalet, Aubisque, Peyresourde, Aspin, Mont Ventoux, Alpe D'Huez, Lauteret; and 2) I visited the home villages of three of my grandparents in Slovenia and Croatia. Crossing Italy I opted for the Italian Riviera and Tuscany, but later wished I had pedaled across the Lakes Region and the Dolomites. And because of factors out of my control I had to cut my trip short so I skipped my plans of zig zagging across Switzerland. Enjoy my journal and the pictures.

TransAlp Trip:Canadian Style
by Dave Pearce, tour started July 2013, submitted 20 November 2013

This trans alp cycling trip is our 5th in Europe and it is not too much different from the others except being twice as long.We are an older couple who doesn't mind a little bit of hard mountain touring with all of our gear and being sort of self sufficient as this is what we do when on long trips in Canada, canoeing, backpacking, cycle touring, when there are few facilities. All of our stays were in campsites except at the end and 98% of our meals were prepared or cooked. We usually do not rely on buses or trains and except for 150km, we carried all our gear.This was a 3800KM, 36,000m, 60 day trip that was even more spectacular than our other journeys.

The Alps are so grand and the infrastructure so good that cycle touring around and over the mountains is a lot of fun. Hope that readers can get a lot of good information from this trip report as we have received so much advice from the Trento Bike Pages in the past.

Ötz valley (Ötztaler) bicycle marathon (I had a dream) 2010': 228 km + 5300 m
by Györgyi Gábor, tour started August 2010, submitted 5 May 2013
Europe: Austria, Italy

In the year of 2010 I participated in the Ötz valley bicyclemarathon (228 km + 5300 m) which is one of the most prestigious bicycle marathon event in Europe. Its slogan is „I have a dream” and a lot of starters think this, me too. First I saw a report about it in the TV 17 years earlier and I hoped I would cycle it once in my life. I rode my touringbike and I carried a small videocamera with me to record the day for video.

The route starts in Austria, Tirol. Its 1st climb is Kühtai (2020 m) which ascent contains a stretch with 16% steepness. On the descent I reached 86 km/h speed. After Brennerpass the 3rd ascent was Jaufenpass / Passo Monte Giovo by pleasant sunny weather. As I reached Bad St Leonhard in time (before timelimit) I knew that the last hard climb, Passo Rombo / Timmelsjoch (250 m) would be a pleasure for me (I knew it too, had climbed earlier): enough time and unbelievable feeling on that wonderful road. I took a lot of photos and often used my videocamera and enjoyed the last climb very much, while I saw few cyclists struggling. I reached the finish with great emotions and memories: that was one of the most memorable day of my life. The travelogue contains a 28 minutes long video about the bicycle marathon.

Breclav to Vienna tour 2012 - the idea of 'the green band'
by Iris Mueck, tour started October 2012, submitted 4 October 2012
Europe: Austria

Do not miss this tour... Only 80 kilometers on hilly roads against the wind... We tried to find out, if there is a bike trail along the former 'iron curtain' boarder: 'the green band' Well, one says on their webpage clearly: 'the green band' is a good idea, which exists more virtual as practical...' That' s the way it is. We closed this missing link and enjoyed the tour! Breclav is a renewed, quite and biker friendly city! [...] Passed cities as Jedenspeigen, Durnkrut, Stillfried and Angern. Heide had many stops in order to collect a rucksack full of walnuts... We went on train at Ganserndorf in order to avoid to cross the city of Vienna at dawn time... Nevertheless, the tour was fun, even facing strong head winds. Enjoy the pictures and details of our tour. Good luck to our followers.

I have cycled in Slovenia and the Dolomites before and on both occasions due to poor weather and a lack of fitness did not ride a route I had previously planned. I decided to return to tackle two climbs - the Grossglockner in Austria and the Vrsic in Slovenia. It was well worth it. Here you will find details of the route, together with information on the hotels and restaurants I used. Learning the lessons, it could be turned from a very good to great tour.

Riding in Europe, Alps
by Ray Hosler, tour started 1985, submitted 22 August 2012

The Alps have long been a summer and winter playground for vacationers around the world. They ski, they hike, they ride bikes. What better venue for the Tour de France than the Alps? After many years of reading, seeing, and dreaming, I had an opportunity to see Europe by bike. As a free-lance writer working part-time at Palo Alto Bicycles, I had no commitments. It was 1985. Greg LeMond had nearly won the Tour de France and was competing in the World Championships in Italy. I decided to go see him race. A friend who was familiar with riding in Europe gave valuable advice.

A tour to explore hidden Styrian summits
by Iris Mueck, tour started June 2012, submitted 30 June 2012
Europe: Austria

Road bike Tour to Wildalpen (Styria/Austria). We ignored the very hot weather and made the tour... With light luggage we made this day 115 kilometers. Prime distance we did per train (Moedling to Payerbach). Then the bicycle...: 1st summit the Preiner Gscheid (height 1.070 meters above sea level) down to Mürzsteg and then 2nd summit: the Niederalpl. A 1.221 meters high connecting summit. For bicyclists rather steep and long (My estimate: 10% slope). My advise: avoid this summit, when not in mood... We have been heading for Wildalpen, found a perfect (affordable) 4**** hotel and enjoyed the evening on a natural pool. The little town Wildalpen is embedded in the 'Salza'-valley. The waters are wild. like the upper Enns river. We have seen many sport kayak riders. We consider to go again to this area, just to share the good times with the paddlers. No one would believe in us, saying, we have been riding home in one day. Hitting Goestling, Lunz, Gaming, St. Anton on Jesnitz, Frankenfels, Kirchberg, St.Poelten. At St.Poelten a bus has taken us back home. Nevertheless this day ended again with 123 kilometers. Hot, hot... Enjoy the pictures below. Good luck to all our followers.

" The show must go on", non ho alternative, riparto. Gli spazi si dilatano e anche qui, come in Polonia tra un paese e l'altro ci sono 10-15 chilometri di nulla, prati incolti, strette mulattiere sterrate che si diramano verso il nulla, rare mucche al pascolo e camioncini catapultati dalla macchina del tempo. Un chiosco di legno, in centro città è l'unica opportunità che ho per comprare qualcosa da mangiare, In pochi metri quadrati sono esposti i più disparati generi alimentari e non. Sembra il codice fiscale di un supermercato. Esco e trovo quattro bambini attratti dalla mia bici.

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.
