Thursday Kappler Alm

Thursday biking again, and the days are getting all wrong now. At the start of the year the fitness fits well with the day/night cycle. The fitness increases and the days get longer. Towards autumn it the opposite with the days.
Lots of Group 1 people there today and a lot had a story to tell. Setting of towards the Kappler Alm via Kappel we had questionable weather once again. Overcast, but luckily no rain. After Kappel a step way uphill, tarmac luckily. A few of Group 1 had biked in the Karwendel area of the Alps. 2300 metres in altitude in total. And I had thought my 2050 metres on the way to Venice was a lot. Talked to a few about that as well. Heidi and some friends of hers biked the Stoneman tour last week and apparently they got so high up or so bad weather that it started snowing, in August.
Reached the Kappler Alm and carried on up towards Sportheim Böck and nearly to the top of the Alpspitze. Up a rocky steep climb only three managed to bike (Paulina, Hopsing and Heti) and Heidi fell over trying to get up, but all the rest got off, by free will or not.
Reaching the highest point of our bike we had sent Paulina of to the front and she spotted a red sun which we saw on our way down to the bistro. Went down the front and arrived for a drink just before night set in. Spent a while at the Bistro talking about tour, trips and biking in Livigno in September.
Track at GPSies and pictures at Picasa.

Time in saddle: 1 hour 36 min.
Average speed: 10.4 km/h
Distance: 16.77 km
