Bicycle our 8.8.2005

This afternoon the ride goes from Oberwart via Buchschachen to Riedlingsdorf, then to Wiesfleck and via Schreibersdorf, Schönherrn and Götzendrof to Gschaidt. Further to Hatmannsdorf and over the neighboring ridge via Offenegg, Kreuzberg and Oberschützen to Bad Tatzmannsdorf.

Near Oberwart, view in direction Wechsel. In the forground canadian goldenrod (Solidago canadensis).

After Riedlingsdorf once more the road leads through dense forest, ....

... where these boletus mushrooms grow near the road

Shortly after the forest a nice view goes to Bernstein; behind, big shower clouds.

Shortly before Oberweinberg: View into Steiermark (Styria) to Ringkogel and Masenberg

Panorama near Oberweinberg in direction south and west. Click into the picture for a better resolution.

A small village chapel in Oberweinberg

After crop of the wheat, straw bales lie around

Riding further, after Schönherrn: View in direction west

This oat field was really fascinating...

Cornflowers at the balk

Hills, meadows, forest, fields...

 ... and so leads the road: up and down, at this moment more up...

On the height at least, shortly after Gschaidt: Panorama in a Western direction.Click into the picture for a better resolution.

Shortly after Hatmannsdorf: up here, at a height of more than 700 m, corn is not cropped yet

Panorma in direction east, the sun behind my back. In the background Hochneukirchen. Click into the picture for a better resolution.

Up here at times heavy winds, that throws down the oat at some places.

Once more Hochneukirchen in the background

In a racy descent I pass Offenegg

Once more fascinated by the oat ...

Thistles with seeds already, ...

... that may sail away in the wind immediately.
