Our last riding day had come - yet it feels as if we had just started our tour!
The weather gods meant well with us once more and we started the day with sunshine, everybody eager to experience the next highlight: Großglockner Hochalpenstrasse.
We rode all the way up to Edelweissspitze and enjoyed a coffee as well as fantastic views from up there.
Back down in warmer realms, we enjoyed our ride to Pillersee to have lunch at the beautiful lake. In the afternoon we crossed the border back into Germany and made it to Erding, where our exciting adventure had started one week earlier. Nobody got hurt, everybody gathered new impressions - what a great tour comes to its end!
Today everybody was keen to get riding in the famous Dolomites. The weather was not too good, though. Luckily we did not have real rain, but unfortunately we could not enjoy many of the views on the impressive mountains.
We stopped for coffee on Grödnerjoch and headed on through the beautiful landscape. At lunch, which we took at lake Misurina, the sky cleared up a little and we were able to grasp a view on the surrounding mountains. We rode on and made it to Lienz, where Marco welcomed us with a boot beer - cheers!
We were lucky again and started the day with perfect weather. And today we really needed the sunshine, beccuse it was Stelvio day!
We headed South and made our first stop at lake Reschen to take a picture. Glurns was next on our route and we enjoyed a coffee in the unique atmosphere of this historical town. But then it was time to tackle the highlight of the day - Stelvio pass, we rode the 48 switchbacks up to the top, where we had lunch and were thrilled by the surrounding landscape. More curves and exciting views were our companions all the way to Bozen, today's overnight destination.
Today it was time to leave Germany, but so much was waiting for us. We crossed into Switzerland and stopped up on Schwägalpe for coffee, it was cold but dry.
We continued our ride down to the valley of river Rhine, crossed Liechtenstein and had lunch at a Chinese restaurant (again!!!!) in Feldkirch, Austria. Our afternoon ride was splendid, through the Montafon valley and up the terrific Silvretta Hochalpenstrasse, great views, great ride and even sunshine on top.
Happily and tired we finally arrived in Zams, staying in the Gasthof Kronburg, so beautifully located up in the mountains.
We had nice weather to start the day with and another beautiful riding day was waiting. Our morning ride took us through some beautiful side roads of black forrest, such us up Kandel-Mountain or to the Hexenlochmühle. After a Chinese lunch we rode on to Switzerland and stopped in Schaffhausen to experience the amazing waterfalls of Rhine river, before we arrived at our new overnight destination: Radolfzell.
It was a new riding day and the black forrest was waiting!
On the way there we enjoyed a superb ride along upper river danube and made it to our first stop - Knopfmacherfelsen, a grand viewpoint.
We rode on to Schiltach, one of those romantic towns in thearea and full of half-timber architecture.
Our afternoon ride was a blast - hundreds of curves, good grip and the charm of autumn leaves were our steady companions all the way to Niedereschach, home of Touratech. We visted the shop and the factory, what a great day!
The weather was great and we could not wait to start the engines. Out route took us through rural Germany, where we got to see beautiful landscape, impressive churches and many typical Bavarian villages.
