Only a morning to play on this mythic road before the coaches and caravans arrived and blocked any fun. Not to mention the speed cameras. But the Großglockner-Hochalpenstraße remains a fantastic road to ride: just do it! Lots of bikers and bikes at the Kaiser-Franz-Josefs-Höhe: view of the Grossglockner glacier and the Großglockner peak (3798 m.) as the weather closed in slightly. My photo is a bit of a Bruegel with all the groups doing things in the scene, also look how far back the glacier has receded: that’s global warming.
But fantastic to get here at last on two wheels and to exorcise remaining demons after the bike accident which prevented me from getting here as planned in 2013. That’s it, done and dusted, thanks to all you who have supported me but now it’s time to move on.
Great also to come back from this adventure and rejoin friends and fun at the GLME summercamp at Imst.
