Thursday Falkenstein

Super tour today again, thanks to Inges navigation. Most of the ways she lead us through we already knew, but not in that order. Weather was also very nice to us, the forecast had foretold rain and all, but it didn't rain a drop and we had loads of sunshine.
Set of towards Pfronten and took a detour along past the Heuschuppen. Strait uphill that early in the tour, just because I had mentioned a deadline at climbing distance. Three weeks ago we did 300 Höhenmeter, two weeks ago 500m and this Tuesday I did 700m with Nico. I jokingly said we had to do at least 900m, Inge tried I think but the group was against that much.
Past the Heuschuppen and through Pfronten to the Falkenstein. Heidi had a chat with a biking doctor on the way up which took of sprinting up the hill after some time. He was followed by Hopsing and Harry which chased him up the whole way probably. Moni and Jon did a more peaceful trip up whilst I stuck with the main group and enjoyed a short view from the top. Racing down along the tarmac and then on the bumpy trail down. The ditches have got deeper this year, you really have to lift the bike up now.
After that through the fences with Jon going onto the pedal with on leg, but most turned out to be open so he got back on properly.
Back towards Nesselwang through Pfronten and and a drink and some chips at the Bistro.
Track at GPSies and pictures at Picasa. Also a report here.

Time in saddle: 2 hours 15 min
Distance: 31.9 km
