In Austria brevets over distances from 200km up to 1000km are held, start and finish are near my hometown Linz (about 20km south of my home, so I can easily get there by bike). The routes of the Austrian events are quite challenging, leading through the lovely landscape of the Salzkammergut and over several mountain passes.
Salzkammergut – a nice region to relax in your holiday. Or to take pains on your bike.
The weather was fine that day, so I am beginning to look like road cyclists use to when being tanned while riding in the sunshine.
Soon I'm gonna look like this.
