Mina toppturer:

Ett ställe för mig att samla mina toppturer för senare referens, samt att dela med mig en del av mina erfarenheter på vinterfjället (om man nu får kalla alperna för fjäll).

A first 2008 transalp route proposal

MTB transalp 2008 Posted on Sat, August 16, 2008 12:47:12

Yesterday it rained the whole day. What is then better than to study maps?! The result of the quite intense map studying session is a first draft of a feasible transalp route for this years drei knödel tour:

Link to GoogleMap entry of the route

We start in Mayerhofen in Zillertal, which is easily accessable by train. From there we roll southbound via Pfitscherjoch, crossing the austrian italian border all ready the first day. The second day we cross the pfunderjoch and pedal thereafter eastbound in direction towards brauneck. Shortly before brauneck we take a right into fanestal, and eventually ending up in arabba (I’m quite excited about this, since I really liked the skiing in arabba). In arabba we take the funicular to the mountain top, and bike the famous bindelweg. Then via seisneralm almost all the way down to the brenner autobahn. I dont know the names of the valleys — however it looks really nice!! Look for yourself…

Well I don’t know if you should call it transalp, since we start in the middle of the Hauptkamm and kind of just ride around in Südtirol. But in the general terminology here in Germany where any MTB project which lasts more than 5 days and ens in Italy is called transalp, I suppose this is a transalp anyway. I however prefer to call it the südtirol project.

At the moment there are four candidates, me, Kjerstin, Henrik, and
Peter. We don’t really know which of those guys acctually well join,
but they have all shown serious interest in the project.

Härligt! Knappt har man packat in skidorna under sängen förrän man fâr blicka framât för sommarens bergssportäventyr. Jag och Jocke beslutatde i fredags att det blir ett mountainbikeprojekt denna sommar ocksâ. Med de erfarenheter vi samlade förra âret tror jag att vi kan pussla ihop en riktigt fet rutt. Diskussionerna gâr just ni i riktning Dolomiterna… Känns najs.
