    Cividale del Friuli

    September 3, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    25.7 km, 590m ascent, 1121m descent, rating medium
    Today we walked with a young Swiss couple and we smashed out the kilometres in great time ....and we had fantastic storm free weather - we could even see the Adriatic Ocean in the distance which is our final destination.Read more

    Valbruna

    August 23, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    14.7km, ascent 244m, descent 1123m, medium rating
    We left the hut in drizzle and fog and within 10 minutes we were in almost total whiteout on the ridge - which made navigation by markers pretty useless. We eventually managed to find a track (and not lose each other) and we started our long steep descent. Unfortunately we missed the views because of the cloud but it provided lovely cool walking conditions in the forest down to the pretty village of Valbruna, Italy.Read more

    Blubberblasenregen

    September 8, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 19 °C

    150 ebene Kilometer trennen mich noch von der Fahrradverbannenden Stadt Venedig..insgeheim dachte ich mir heute morgen, dass geht ja mit ein bisschen Rückenwind auch an einem Tag..Das mit dem Rückenwind klappte für ein paar Kilometer..Aber irgendwie hat sich dann der Wind gedreht und mit ihm kam der Regen..ein bisschen halte ich ja aus..ein bisschen mag ich sogar..nunja..den ersten in Pfützen Blubberblasen schlagenden Regenerguss habe ich noch in einer Bushaltestelle abgewartet..beim zweiten hatte ich nicht so viel Glück ein trockenes Plätzchen zu finden..der Regen strömte in mein Gesicht und zwar in der Art, dass ich selbst die Straße nicht mehr gesehen habe..Für die Regenhose war ich zu langsam, nach ein paar Sekunden war meine Hose tiefdurchtränkt und die Regenjacke hatte ich zwar an, aber auch die konnte den Regenfluss auf meiner Haut nicht aufhalten, so unerbittlich prasselte es vom Himmel..Viel eher blähte sie sich, trotzdem sie hoch verschlossen war, vor lauter Wind zu einem Fallschirm auf, der das vorankommen nicht wirklich einfacher machte..nach einigen Kilometern finde ich eine kleine Kaschemme am Wegesrand, die mir einen Kaffee und einen Keks serviert..zwei Stunden warte ich unter strengster Beobachtung des Regenradars, bevor ich mich für heute geschlagen gebe und mir die nächstmögliche trockene Unterkunft suche..8km..ich warte auf einen günstigen Moment, in dem es nur stark regnet, Ich aber zumindest noch drei Meter weit gucken kann..hat nichts gebracht..hielt nur 500m an bevor ich mir wieder Nebelschlussleuchten an Kevin wünsche..komisches Gefühl, wenn beim in die Pedalen treten Wasser aus der Hose kommt..😂..
    Den restlichen Tag widme ich einer heißen Dusche und Netflix..

    Dolomiten und Udine

    August 4, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Nach einem aufregenden Trip über das Timmelsjoch und dem Jaufenpass haben wir, wie letztes Jahr, direkt auf dem Pass übernachtet. Weiter ging's heute über einen Pass in den Dolomiten wo wir dann einen langen Badestop an einem Fluss genossen. Weiter ging's nach Udine wo wir die Nacht auf einem kostenlosen Stellplatz verbrachten.Read more

    Tolmezzo in the rain

    May 18, 2019 in Italy ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    It's nice to now be in the part of Italy where they speak Italian.
    I had rode in light rain for around 40 kilometers inside the Italian border when I stopped for petrol. More about that later. Every one was speaking German. It is the language of the area.
    I was about five and a half hours on the bike with the temperature at 13c at its best and 6 on the mountain passes. Whoever invented heated handlebar grips should be made a saint. Also, before setting off on this adventure I treated myself to new riding clothing. In my world it was very expensive but today it proved its worth. I wore the jacket and trousers both with the removable lining in and left my jumper off so under the jacket was only a tee shirt and under the trousers boxer shorts. I was not the slightest bit cold. The rain was negligeable until the last 40 minutes when the heavens opened so I arrived at the hotel and asked the receptionist to take a picture of me as I dripped on the carpet. The rain stopped as I checked in.
    They provided a special lock up place for motorcycles and just a I was putting my bike away 6 other BMW bikes arrived from Germany and Finland. This area is there destination.
    When I fill my bike with fuel it shows on the screen how many miles can be covered with the tank now full, this is based on how you are riding which wasn't hard due to traffic. It said I could do 710klm which is 441 miles on 23 litres which is 5 UK gallons which if it were correct would equal 88 miles to the gallon. I think its nearer 75 which is still very good.
    After posting this I'm off into town to a pizzeria I spotted when I went for a walk.
    Just across the square from my hotel which you can see in one of the pictures is a church and like a lot of Italian churches it looks bland from the outside but inside it was beautiful.

    Visited Julian Alps in Montasio

    August 9, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Yesterday we founs a tip to visit the Julian Alps in Montasio. So we decided to go there. It was a 1 hour drive from Sutrio and the last 20 minutes were I quite hard piece of Street since only one car fits but a lot of cars wants to get up and down... We parked 3 km in front of parking space and settled our bikes and it was a good decision. Since most tourists are walking to the same restaurant we decided to drive another way and we had luck. The area is famous for their cows and they just went next to us up to their next destination. The cows were very exited about our bikes and we got a bikewash without any costs 😁 on the way back we went to river fellas which is the biggest nature river in Europe. Pretty cold but worth to put your feet into it.Read more

    Chiusaforte Alpe Adria

    August 8, 2020 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

    Saw this place in a documentary in TV. It is a cycling road from Salzburg down to Adria. One of the most beautiful section is Chiusaforte. There is an old Train station which is now a restaurant and all bikers which coming down from Austria have a short brake. We took our bikes and drove up and down from trainstation. In our opinion the best cycling area so far.Read more
