Day 5 : Down to the lake

Last day of this TransAlp: We climbed the Septimer Pass to 2300m

It was cold up there, but the steep downhill helped to become warmer (by riding and pushing the bike down).

We crossed into Italia, and after about 30 flat km, we reached Lago di Como.

Uphill to biz bum (oder so ähnlich) [--> Alp Flix]

Preparing for a weeks tour

Saturday evening. Everything I am going to need is spread out on the dinning table: From jerseys to müslibars, from the spare parts to the rain equipment, that I do not want to use too much. The MTB is ready and awaiting it's second challenge to cross the Alps.

This time, I am riding with a group of people and a guide. I am looking forward to this  after all these tours on my own.

5 days from Lace Constance in Switzerland to Lake Como in Italy.
