We love you again, Austria!May 22, 2017 in Austria
Ok, so I take back some of my critique of the Austrian cycle networks. The Danube cycle track from just outside Passau (Jochenstein) to (approx) Linz is a DREAM. Absolute cycling heaven.
Wide flat asphalt. So easy to follow. The views down the valley were fantastic. The Danube really is a huuuge body of water and would lend itself well to some multi-lane rowing racing ;)
The first challenge of the day was the power station /bridge we had to cross. 90 steps up + 2 x well-laden touring bikes +90 steps down = unloading and reloading and about 20 minutes to move forward 150m. 😅
We also had the pleasure of a bike-ferry crossing. For 2 Euros a guy with a boat with a cabin full of schnaps took us and our bikes across the river.
86km cycled today. Happy days!Read more
