My compatriot for this trip starts today. She is the reason I am off the couch and riding. Cindy asked if I wanted to cross the Sahara and I said sure. She is riding for a cause and you can read about it on her blog http://cyclingcindy.wordpress.com/ She is starting from her home in Netherlands and I will meet her somewhere along the way. Yes more solid planning.
I started the day continuing down the valley. Then I turned north with the bike route going up and down the hill sides and then crossing the narrow valley again and again. I went to the road. At times I was going faster than the cars on the Autobahn. That was with me going up hill. Ok the Autobahn is not fast on a Sunday afternoon with the Germans and Austrians trying to get home. Then I made it to Austria.and it started to rain on the top of the pass. I asked about a hostel and was directed to a town14k away. They said it was only twenty minutes and they were right. Ok about the time, but not about the hostel. So I headed to Innsbruck and the cars can wait as I take the full road making turns at good speed. I go for the camping option again.
