Hot and cold – rolling down from Brennero

So this day was a really varied one…
I started in Innsbruck with a little bit of rain and took the train up to the Brennero pass.
As I exit the train I first took out my woollen cap, the rainclothes, the long underwear and long gloves – 5 C.

Cycling down the perfect prepared track it got a little bit warmer so I could leave a part of the warm stuff time by time.

Visiting Brixen and Clausen I’ve seen again great cultural sites and an outstanding countryside.

On my way I passed the Trostburg and an old bridge I’ve been before with some friends.

About 15 km before entering Bolzano there is a small restaurant in the middle of nowhere – but next to the cyclepath.
And – they serve the bavarian organic beer ‘Riedenburger’ – so let’s have a pint…

And here I got the options to dry my clothes – hurray!
So now the bike was rolling a bit faster and I have to say that this part of today’s track was the most impressive.

So after 101 km I reached my really nice and new youthhostel and enjoyed a little bit of the ancient town.
