It`s time to report a tour from our homeland Austria.

Well, we made the bigger distance by train (Vienna to Mariazell).

But then: biking...

The Zellerrainstrasse is a sort of challange.

Starting at the train station Mariazell, we have been riding down to the lake Erlaufsee.

A wonderful and paved path lead us there.

The Zellerrainstrasse stated right on the Westend of the lake.

Winding up to a height of 1.121 meters.

The old Zellerrain road has been a gravel road with a pitch level of 22 %

Today, the road is paved and the pitch level round between 15+ %

I have been on my last sprocket ring.

Enjoy the pictures of my report.

Good luck to our followers!
