Days off the bike = bike rides round Oberstdorf

Got to Oberstdorf ok, and got booked into a B&B. Then went out for a ride to keep the legs loose. Ended up climbing about 1000 feet up the mountain behind the ski jumps, and felt quite good doing it – Last time I was here in 2008 I had to walk up the same hill, this time I got most of the way up. Descending made the rims very hot to the touch!

Had a few beers at the Irish pub in town and called it a night at 1. Up early for breakfast, and the B&B owner took me for a bike ride south of the town, where we climbed about 5-600m higher than the town. Descending was hairy and fast to say the least. I then rode the Fellhornbahn to the top of the Fellhorn where there were beautiful views.

A quick ride back down into town, and a bite to eat. A coffee, check email, then back to the room to pack ready for tomorrow.

Miles today about 20, but loads of climbing. Need a cat nap, then a quiet shandy, early night and tomorrow it is homeward bound.
