Salzkammergut Mountainbike tour 24.5.2004

After a totally rainy weekend there is one day left for me before my congress starts. The family has driven home, so I have time for a Mountainbike ride. First I tackle Postalm, from there however downhill on the other side to the next valley (Lammertal), passing by Abtenau and over Pass Gschütt to Gosau. Further more to Lake Hallstatt and via Bad Goisern and Bad Ischl back to Strobl, about 80 km all.

Ramson is flourishing near the road

Herzblättrige Kugelblumen (Globularia cordifolia) near the road with view to Braunedlkogel

Orchis mascula subsp. signifera near the road


Once more Braunedlkogel (centre) and Gamsfeld (left), now seen from Postalm

On descent to Lammertal: Auszer - Lienbachalm.
During the descent, both V-brakes of my bike turn out to have a broken down brake shoe - that does not make me feel secure!!!

King cups at Auszer - Lienbachalm

View from Lammertal to the Dachstein massif - to the right Bischofsmuetze (2.458 m)

orchis mascula subsp. signifera in Lammertal

Gosau with the Gosau ridge. Due to the bad brakes I decided to walk the 2 kilometers down Pass Gschuett

A very nice guy with his small, but fine bicycle store in Bad Goisern repaired my brakes - as a thank you I support the link to his homepage:
