Transalp Oberstdorf - Lake Como 2005
Photos of an Alpine traverse in six image galleries.
Here we go! Starting in Oberstdorf we leave South to the Schrofenpass. Will the weather keep sunny?
2 Silbertal - Fimbatal
Through the swampy Silbertal, across the Silbertaler Winterjöchle, and uphill to the Neue Heilbronner Hütte - a mountain lodge. Push and carry like never before! Pouring rain from the Kops Reservoir to the Heidelberger Hütte ...
3 Fimberpass - Val d'Uina
"Shall we climb the Fimberpass in snow?" "Err, yes, just one hour to push your bike ..." as we learned in the Heidelberger Hütte. The next day gives us impressions of the Engadine gorges and more weather adventures ...
4 Val Mora
The amazing green of Val Mora accompanies us as we leave Switzerland and return to Italy. Singletrack riding to Lake San Giacomo di Fraele and to Lake Cancano make our day ...
5 Val Viola - Valtellina
No mercy! The Viola Valley (Val Viola) is most beautiful and - steep. Just a few hundred meter seperate the Rifugio Val Viola from the pass. Just a few meter and we are in for another downhill push-and-carry adventure ...
6 Lake Como
Warm weather, cycletracks and backroads: we enjoy the Valtellina. Soon we reach Lake Como and a ferry takes us to the Western Shore. But what will bring the last day of our tour ... ?
Come in and enjoy our visual tour --»
