07-2020 – Cycling to Carinthia

On Monday, 20.07.2020, I started to cycle southwards to Carinthia via Pass Pyhrn and Pass Triebener Tauern and then back via Mallnitz – Bad Gastein.
That would include about 700 km and 6.000 m altitude again.

  • There were many highlights worthwhile to mention.
  • I visited the “running wall” near Molln. It is a vertical wall of conglomerate stones where water drips through.
    Depending on the recent amount of rain, it is little or a big shower. Mine was a light shower.
  • Found a splendid camping site in Aigen.
  • Managed to cycle up the Triebener Tauern Pass to 1.274 m altitude and quite a steep gradient.
  • Found an informal camping spot in Frantschach.
  • The lakes of Carnuntum were not overcrowded.
  • The way back via Mallnitz and the train shuttle to Bad Gastein until Golling was tough.
  • Found a jewel of a route to Hinterebenau and Fuschl
  • Met unexpected friends at the lake of Wolfgangsee
  • Met my cousin in Altmünster and a good friend in Gmunden
  • Returned to my all time favorite Steyrtal.
