Question A sunday ride Bavaria and Austria

Hi all
not an adventure, just a small sunday ride. April 1st. Nice weather. I life where others make holidays (slogan of the region). :-) ok, let's do a ride.

For all want to ride the trak - here's the gpx-file.
Inntal.gpx

So let's start. Took out the KTM, tankbag on, girlfriend ready. Start.


Leaving Penzberg and ongoing to "Bad" Tölz, which is not bad. :-) Crossing the river Isar and following the valley direction Lenggries. Still snow on the montains. Paragliders in the air at the Brauneck montain. First stop. Some pics from here.

the parking


Isar river - nice for sunbathing, cold water even in Summer


Brauneck montain near Lenggries.


And on we go. The road is unspectacular, not too much curves. After Lenggries we could go into Jachenau-valley, but not today. We go on and arrive the Sylvenstein-dam. I like this place very much. Other bikers too.

View direction Austria, upper Isar valley. If you follow the road near the lake you can reach the "Ahornboden".


Same view "zoomed"


And the "others" :-) most started the season on this day. We call them "Saisonkennzeichenfahrer"




Here the curvey part starts. We go on along the lake and after some kilometers we crossed the border to Austria. (where the "Achenpass" comes down).
So you can guess what was next stop. Yes - Achensee-lake.

Here he is.




From the lake the road goes more down and ends up where the Zillertal meets the Inntal. Short before the highway we turned left and followed some small roads. If you know where to go, it is possible to ride a very nice round here into the mountains and through a small valley.

Here the pics.


ja, ja, - Bikers love to make pics from their bikes. :-)

Here's inside the valley which goes up and up to Brannenberg. At the beginning of the round a nice church.


and


This is a smaller road with not so much traffic at this time in the year. It's nice to ride. Near the top you reach a part which is called "Kaiserklamm". The river takes here his (small) way between rocs. In Summer children use the bridge to jump into the (cold of corse) river.

On the other side of the valley we went up the road went down, close to the point we started. Some impressions.

View down. Near the river is the road we came up.


other direction


one more


enough. :-)

Back in the Inn-valley we followed the small road to Kufstein. Nothing worth a photo here, but nice to ride. Very small road.
In Kufstein we went left again to reach Bayrischzell. This road is loved by the local bikers. A lot of curves and some space for speed.
Here the weather wasn't too good and so we missed to go up to the sudelfeld which is a good place to meet other bikers like Sylvenstein-dam, -- be careful when you ride there - lot of police and lot of speed-traps!!

Next stop was Fischbachau. Best place in the area for having some big - real big - cake and coffee.

In the garden (a coffe-garden :-), not a beergarden) :-)


we had


and it was good


Girl was freezing at this time, so we decided to go on. After some km we were back in the sun. Sometimes the weather in the alps could be realy strange. :-)
Through Holzkirchen we went to Dietramszell, here you can find a monastry. Looks like this.



So time to get the last few kilometers. Along the Isar again we reached Wolfratshausen and headed south back home.


Girl was smiling, me too. We had a real nice day.

So this is where i life in the moment. Hope you enjoyed the "Little" small report.

Have fun.
Bettina and Andreas

Hi Uzay,
thanks for the comment. Yes, i smoke a lot, but not too much (only 4 cig on 280 km) :-).

To give you all an impression of the "cakes" in Fischbachau take a look here: http://www.winklstueberl.de/ -- klick on "Kuchentheke" (Sorry - they only have a website in german language - haven't found a english version).

have fun
Andreas

Oh wow... that place looks like Heaven on Earth for people with a taste for sweet things and that wonderfully relaxed Euro lifestyle.

Riding in the Alps is a real dream of mine. Someday!

@Zapfenstreich: yeah, and it is a good place when your girl is cold and starts to feel uncomfortable on the bike. Makes her smile again. CU in the alps - you will make it someday, i'm sure.
@Boottrac: hey, it's the Macho riding the Machobike. Tina is the great girl on the seat behind me (since 15 years now - still afraid of curves) . Hope you get your engine in soon and i'll wait for your pics of this tour.

have fun
Andreas

@all: thanks for your kind comments. I'll think to publish more reports the next weeks around "my" area.
@h20pumper: contact me via PM. Maybe i'll find the time to guide you (if you want).
@Onion: This is hard to describe with my low english. I don't know exactly who did it. I think it was made by the young people laying here on "the beach" of the river. For me it is like this little "stone-signs" you can find all over the world. I think it is not for flood-protection, because thatfor is the Sylvenstein-dam a few km more up the road. (Tina will ask at the Bad Tölz tourist info if they know more about it - i'll post it, when we found out).

have fun
Andreas
