Moist Alpspitze Tour

Raining today. Wasn’t that motivated as going out into rain is, in my opinion, a lot worse than getting caught in rain.
Spot on at ten past six Nico rang the doorbell and after getting the rest of my gear packed it was of towards the Alpspitze. Decided to go that way as if it started raining hard we could get back fast. Light drizzle on the way up, but the sun came out after some time. Had two bikers in front of us which where as mad as us biking in this weather. They said the same latter. Enjoyed the view from the typical view point and then set of to Sportheim Böck. Reaching the top I got changed into some warmer gear and Nico had some fun filming himself biking through snow with his GoPro.
Then downhill with some speed. Me in front this time, biking uphill I would say Nico is better as he was in front most of the time and could have carried on without stopping a few times.
Had some incidents going downhill with a gauge in the path but nothing serious. All the way down to Kappel with Nico ending up with dirt in his face as he has no mudguard on his bike.
Back home through the forest ropes course (with some idiotic women staying put in the middle of the path and not stepping aside). Home through Wank with sunshine.
Track at GPSies and some pictures at Picasa.

Time in saddle:1 hour 30 min.
Distance: 16,4 km
Average speed: 10.9 km/h
