    In Ösi - Land ist alles anders. Hier trägt die Rezeptionistin am Zeltplatz und sonst niemand Maske wie es scheint. Es gab hinter Passau keine Grenzkontrolle und wir müssen jetzt dringend faul sein. Deshalb sind wir gleich hinter Linz am Pichlinger See gestrandet und haben erst einmal ein Begrüssungsschnitzel inhaliert. Mittagsschlaf ist vorbei - ich wär den Hansi noch mal aufs Fahrrad überreden.... Oh jetzt regents trotz Sonne nanu 🤨Read more

    Solltet ihr weiter in Richtung Ungarn reisen, dann gibt es die Masken auch nur in den Supermärkten und beim Bäcker. Mehr haben wir nicht gesehen. Also sehr entspannt! 😷

    Why would sane, intelligent instrumental music teachers agree to staff a cyo/cych concert tour? There is much to lose in giving up more than a week of your life to this cause, such as sleep, holiday time, good food, early nights, single rooms, free time, lie-ins, oh, and did I mention sleep? The gains? We get to spend over a week with 119 incredibly talented young musicians, some singers, some players and some that are both. They cope admirably with the gruelling journey that can only be likened to the never ending story and put up with ridiculous wc queueing experiences at 2 or 3 am. They appear for breakfast at the agreed time, assemble at the appointed hour fully equipped for departure to some far-off concert venue , all with smiles on their faces and manners that would make their parents proud! Did they ever moan, complain, object or protest? Certainly not. ( I won't mention here the request to have a few independent hours in town on the last night ) . The concerts were without exception successful. Glorious music played and sung in beautiful venues. Whilst the conductors basked in the glory, weighed down by bouquets and compliments, the rest of the staff took the opportunity to improve their stand-folding and weight- lifting skills. Musical skills? Not exactly, but necessary. Except of course, for the supremely talented, willing and very very able Mr Johnson who was able to rehearse and perform both a virtuosic Tuba concerto and a fiendish jazz keyboard part in Mass in Blue IN THE SAME CONCERT. The van crew need special thanks as they were vital to the tour success and never lost their sense of humour. I could continue this for hours but my phone battery is not going to play ball ( luckily for you). So, in conclusion I feel very fortunate to have been allowed to share the joys and hardships with our 119 amazing young people and my very special NMPAT colleagues. There were many tears shed on the final night. We will return n September to a fresh orchestra and choir but Tour 2018 will remain in our hearts forever. May all our leavers have a happy and successful future. Remember to come back and visit your old friends from time to time .
    All the best wishes from Mrs Malitskie!

    We love you again, 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!

    Power station crossing...

    Nur den Mut nicht verlieren, auch wenn Ihr mal ab und an ent- und beladen müsst. In Finnland ist es viel flacher.................

    Robin Sibson

    Enjoy the lovely Danube. We did Passau to Vienna in 2015, delightful. I trust you are having a brilliant time.

    Sarah, a thought, do you fancy giving us a talk at Mount Cook when you get back - 'life in the outdoors on a bike' !

    Die erste Panne

    Kette beim Herunterschalten abgesprungen und natürlich sofort verklemmt. Für die nächste Tour gibt es Rohloff mit Riemenantrieb. 😡

    Erika Eiteljörge

    So ein Pech

    Erika Eiteljörge

    Trotzdem weiterhin eine gute Fahrt ihr werdet es schon meistern

    Marcus Franke

    Du sollst ja auch nicht wie so ein Berserker in die Pedalen treten. Ganz smooth .. Bisher hab ich noch gedacht, eure Räder sehen ordentlich stabil aus, aber bei der Kette nicht?

    Uwe Lass

    Das ist bei Lope passiert, die hat leider nur eine LX Ausstattung. Der Unterschied zur Deore XT ist dann doch signifikant.
