Trainings ride over the “Piller”/Trainingsfahrt über den Piller

I just did a trip over the Piller – a round trip of just over 96 Kilometers (60 miles). I had hoped to reach 100, but despite a detour to visit a friend it wasn’t quite long enough and when you get home, you don’t feel you want to cycle round the village just to make the magic target! However it was 1250 meters (4100 feet) of elevation and six and a half hours in the saddle – not too bad really. I set off at 6:30 so that it wasn’t too hot for the climb! I had a nice experience – met a lady with saddle bags (you don’t see many ladies doing long trips alone), who seeed to be travelling at my speed, so we got talking and ended up cycling about 20 miles together!

Heute habe ich wieder eine längere Trainingsfahrt (über den Piller) gemacht 96 Kilometer und 1250 Höhenmeter – 6,5 Stunden im Sattel.  Ich wollte eigentlich 100 Kilometer fahren, aber es waren einfach nicht mehr und wenn man heimkommt, will man auch nicht ein paarmal ums Dorf fahren, nur um die magische Zahl zu erreichen!
