Up the Elleg and Buron

After three weeks of no biking I was finally back on the bike with the Thursday group.
Before we set of on our tour we meet up at the gym and had a lengthy discussion about where to go. Group 2 had an idea rather fast so they where of and Group 1 decided after a few minutes that we would head of towards the Elleg and the perhaps also take the Buron.
The weather wasn't the best, overcast sky, a strong head wind and the smell of rain on its way. Getting to Haslach was a challenge in itself, as the wind was against us getting there and it had some strong arguments. Arrived there eventually and went uphill to Feistenoy, watching Paulina get ready for a tour tomorrow. After that up the Elleg where it started to drizzle a bit. Put on our long clothes and whizzed down to Wertach before going back up the other side to the Buron hut. Arrived at the top rather fast, as I had a very lively talk with Heidi. That does seem to shorten the felt biking time.
Long and rainproof clothes on after the and downhill in wet conditions before heading back to the Bistro for a drink.
