Although the weather was rainy windy and terribly cold I started at about half past eleven am.

At about three o’clock pm I arrived at Brenner pass and went for the first Italian espresso this tour 🙂

I dressed as warm as possible using the new kind of gaiters, rain trousers and the primaloft jacket with hood and the goretex cap over the hood and under the helmet. So I was well prepared for the downhill. Locus map measured 67 kmh highest speed. I’m not sure whether this was correct.

I took the road because the bike path is about twice as long with some ups and downs. There was less traffic so I was at sterzing within 15 minutes 😉

And decided to go to Brixen. Some heavy gusts made me be very careful. Again I took the road to franzensfeste then switched over to the bike path and arrived at bressanone at about six pm.

After a hot and long shower I felt ready for dinner 🙂

Starting at home.
Heavy clouds. Fresh snow and the European Bridge.
Kind of lunch next to pfons made me freeze.
Final climb 🙂
Done 🙂
Who is that? Well prepared for downhill 😉
Second brake at sterzing.
Huge construction area at mauls for 56 km Brenner basic tunnel.
The special architecture at my B&B at Brixen. Even a hook for my bicycle 😉
Really pretty nice 🙂
Original wash basin
Hot pumpkin soup warming very well 🙂
Also the delicious hummus 🙂
