More Alps w/ Pics


Miriam

Recommended Posts

Well, we did it again… Went to Austria, Italy, and Switzerland for some ten days of awesome riding. Lots of mountain passes, most impressive one being the Stelvio on account that it’s the second highest in the Alps you can ride on-road, but also because its pretty steep. Some stretches up to 15%, more are 12%, still enough to get my heart rate up a fair bit.

As is obvious from the pictures we were totally spoiled with the weather, had lots of ice cream, and a wonderful group to ride with. Can it get any better?!

Nice pictures Miriam, thanks ! The Stelvio is always one of the great passes to 'conquer'. Looks like you had good weather to go with it smile.gif

 

Kind regards,

Francois

Miriam,

 

Simply incredible pix, especially the Stelvio(?) Pass. Keep the great ride tales and photos coming. They are a wonderful diversion for this ride who has never been to Europe...
