Sunday Rehbach

After two weeks of school back on the bike, at last. A warm sunny Sunday with the weather offering it's best after the weeks of rain and flooding Germany has had.
After doing some courier jobs for Dad today morning I was of biking with him, Gabi and Irene. Towards Pfronten at a leisurely pace, as I had two weeks of no biking and the other three had been partying the night before. In Pfronten a right turn up Vilstal, criss-crossing the river her and there and me going through it at one point. Going up a trail near the river I heard a yell from behind me and apparently Gabi had fallen of at some point, but nothing serious. Lots of other bikers and walkers in the Vilstal today, seems like we weren't the only ones with this idea. Past through some beautiful forest near the river before heading up to a hotel and restaurant. Had a drink and shared an ice with Dad before resuming our tour. A bit further uphill but nothing to difficult and the downhill towards Unterjoch. Dads disc brakes were making some funny sound nearly all the way so it is something for Jon to look at later. Along the Wertachtal, past the Sorgalm with some biker repeatedly overtaking us and then waiting for his wife/girlfriend. On towards Wertach and then along the Gr├╝ntensee with a short stop to see if we could swim. Not the case, due to mentioned floods, so on towards home with a drink and something to eat at Gabis.
Track at GPSies and some pictures from Dad at Picasa.

Time in saddle: 2 hours 50 min.
Distance: 38.6 km
