Bavaria - Austria - Round 8 - Timmelsjoch

Hi all,
small tour done today - maybe the last possible before winter rushes in.

Tour: Penzberg - Kochelsee - Walchensee - Seefeld - Innsbruck - Brenner - Sterzing - Jaufenpass - Timmelsjoch - Ötztal - Seefeld - Penzberg.

371 km -- here's the gpx-file

Timmelsjoch.gpx

Started a bit late - so went first to Kochelsee and up the Kesselberg to Walchensee.



This parking is closed by police, because of too much too fast bikes (like the one in the background)

Passing Lake Walchensee - torwards Krün and Mittenwald. At Krün you can see the Zugspitze and Karwendel-mountains.



Zugspitze between helmet and Tankbag



The parking short before Krün.

Down to the Inn-valley - passing Innsbruck and up the Brenner-pass (not at the highway - too boring) - Be careful on that road - manny speed-traps.

At the top of the pass they opened a "outlet-center" - Tina loves buying chocolate there.



this was for a long time the most high bridge in Europe. The "normal" pass-road follows the highway.



the shopping-center at the top.

Than going down to Sterzing. Wanted to go to the Dolomites, but was too late to do, so i decided to take Jaufen-pass and Timmelsjoch.



20 km and 10 "tornante" later at the top of Jaufen. View dir. Merano.



and view dir. Sterzing there i came up - Road already prepeared for the snow who will come soon.

Manny curves down to St. Leonhard in Passeier-valey - (left to Merano) and right up the Timmelsjoch dir. Austria.



golden October (half the way up)



near the top - view to the italian mountains arround.



panorama part 2



and here on the way down short before (the fu..ing toll-station) Sölden - Next Sunday the ski-world-cup starts there.

Running down Oetz-valley into Inn-valley. Following the river until Telfs. Here left and up to Seefeld (famous wintersport resort).

Last pics - on the way up - the night catched me.



the way up



Last view to the Inntal - Telfs and river inn.

Was cold at Seefeld - had to rush. Down the Kesselberg i meet 2 "biker-friends" at the parking. A little smal-talk and back home.

have fun
Andreas

P.S.: You know some of my reports and you miss Tina -- me too - she is on a company-meeting, so i had to ride alone this time.

Thanks for your comments.
They told me at Jaufen that Timmelsjochroad will close next week, after the ski-world-cup.
Weatherforecast tells that it will have snow next week down to 400m.

brrrr :-)

have fun
Andreas
