Today, we've been starting another one of these great Alps touring centers. Another way to see the Alps just without the need to change the hotels every day.
Every day we will venture out to explore another part of the routes in the area from Seefeld in Tyrol until Italy as well as to the east and to the west. Today, we will be visiting Germany, or better Bavaria.
Some of the tour members came a day earlier to do a riding training ahead of tour start.
Gottfried showed them a few tricks
In the meantime, Angela and Jürgen, the tour guides for the upcoming tour, prepared the bikes for the rest of the group
Jürgen and his very nice layout of the tour
