Video: AlpenCross Solo from Münich to Riva del Garda

A very popular MTB-trip in Europe is crossing the Alps.
Last summer I did the crossing from Munich in Germany, to the Lago di Garda in Italy.
Just me and my bike!
1000km and 27000m+ in10 days.
Starting in Cologne at midnight to take the night train and arrive fresh and motivated in München.

From there, the first 100km are relatively flat, along the river Isar.
After this warming up, the mountains show up at the horizon, and the real work could start!

In this part of the Alps there was a lot of movement during the First WW. As a result, there are large military roads that make it easy to do a lot of kms on a day.
However, above 2000m there was still a lot of snow, mainly 1h/day I had to carry the bike.

The endpoint Riva del Garda is a popular touristic place, with beaches, water and sun. The ideal end of a nice trip!

I slept in hotels because after a 100km day trip I like to sleep and eat well. In the shower I washed my biking clothes, and next morning they were dry and ready for another 12h ride.
Since I am all alone I can stop and ride whenever I want; that's nice if you want to film yourself (placing the camera, riding by, return to pick up the camera, etc...) A companion would have thrown me off the cliffs if he had to wait for this filming..!

The movie is a little different than the cool downhill vids you find here...
This is a "cool" movie, in de meaning of "take it easy, breathe and relax"

Enjoy!

What impresses me most is the fact that you were able to do all the filming and still managed to ride 100 km with almost 3k of altitude gain every day :)

The video looks good, too. I doubt this was an objective of yours but it did inspire me to do some snow riding today :wink:
