After a long break and many training rides, I started my journey again from Bern on Wednesday the 27th of March. As I had all my stuff back in Bern I have decided not to continue from Mainz, but to cycle some hills and mountains towards Vienna through Switzerland and the Allgäu.
In these first days, I had some heavy climbs through the hilly Toggenburg Region, which ended with an 8 minute downhill to Gams in the Rhine Valley. On this particular Friday, which was my 29th Birthday, I continued cycling along the Rhine (also border to Liechtenstein) to Oberriet where I could set up my tent in the garden of my friend’s colleague. This sunny day, on which I cycled the most high-meters so far and had my longest downhill, ended with a great barbeque and great company with Reto, Miriam and Ben.[/penci_text_block][/vc_column][/vc_row]
