After a long, long time (I really don’t want to say how long it is) I finally took my mountain bike again and went for a short trip. As I started I decided to follow the sun. I looked towards Vinschgau valley (Val Venosta) and went for the bicycle route which takes from Merano up to Tell. I knew they should have finished it and that it should be nice. Before the municipalities decided to build it, we used to bike on the street – it was horrible, the cars would pass only a few cm away from you with tremendous speed. Today I had this beautiful surprise. On my two regained wheels, I biked up on this so-called small “Stilfser Joch” – because of its hairpin bends – as a guy cycling the same way up told me today. On the way I met many other passionate bikers enjoying the nice temperature. It has been gorgeous! I’m totally happy I started doing this sport again!
