Peaks and Passes. August 2018

Saturday, August 25, 2018 | Robert Stoll / Michael Engelhard | Europe

The Alps are calling....   This time for a group on big V twin Harley Davidsons...   We set off once again to do  what some people say cannot be done on these big beautiful bikes, conquer the Alps on some very technical roads in Austria, Italy and Switzerland....  We started the tour in the lovely village of Seefeld Austria. A skiers paradise  in winter, a lovely place to USUALLY beat the heat in summer.  But trust me...it is plenty hot this year.    We left Seefeld behind on a nice leisurlly ride through a tiny part of Germany....back in Austria.  We turned our bikes south towards Lake Achen. Then we climbed up to Krimml water falls....then through a beautiful valley to the foot of Grossglockner the highest mountain in Austria with an amazing pass to take  over the top..... finally we headed through Lienz on our way to call it a night in our awesome hotel in Kals....

Is there any better place to have a coffee in the morning? Lago di Anterselva
Great view out of the cable car while going up to Lagazuoi. Here the Sass de Stria mountain (meaning "stone of a witch" )
Operation Manager Markus is talking about the static battles that took place at the Dolomites during WWI.

Bolzano... To Riva Del Garda.... A great day of some nice leisurely rising.... Not a whole lot of sight seeing....but a TON of outstanding riding....
