Touring centre Alps

Saturday, August 19, 2023 | Jan Van der Jagt / Axel Gert Schneider | Europe

Our bikes are ready!
We are staying in the typical tiroler town off Seefeld. Well known for wintersports, hiking and off course riding motorcycles!

Discovering Innsbruck

Early in the morning, it's not so warm yet, we are having coffee next to the Annasäule
The Innsbrucker Dom has plenty off gold inside...
Up into the mountains! First we take the funicular train: a simple and therefore effective way to go up and down diagonal but stay horizontal
After 2 more cable cars we arrive at 7400ft high
With a beautiful view on Innsbruck and the Alps

Riding School at the Touring Center Alps

Riding School at the

Touring Center Alps

 

Good Morning Good Morning and welcome to the Riding School.

Today we kick of this Tour of with some theory and practice. What does it mean: After a good breakfast we cached up at the Lobby and went straight to the bikes. Next stop has been our practice place where we started though with the theory about riding curves like hairpin, improving of breaking, how to counter steer and many more.
And after all this theory it was time for some practice and so we did. I started with Kevin and Marv with a nice little warm up before we took on the all the theory where we went through before - to do it in real.

It was nice to see how quick they managed all this Tasks. And as you have seen at the drawing our last bulled point of today has been a nice ride through my backyard around Seefeld. 

So my part of this Tour is already over because I just joined to do the Riding School so from here on Jan will take over will be the guide for the rest of this nice Tour. Well, I got to say thank you for this great day to Marv and Kevin, it´s been a pleasure to ride with you and I hope we see us again – one day on a Tour.

See you next time 

Axel

Some Challenges what we did
And hey it could happened to anybody - so we practice also to pick up a heavy bike like these
There some Lines what you can ride out there - But if you keep in mind: Starting Wide Ending Tide - it helps a lot in the Alps - And what we like to say with it - well for that you should come on the Riding School
Marv and Kevin picking up quit quick so its almost time to go out for the ride
