With over 750 miles under our belts we are still cycling up the increasingly beautiful valley of the Drau River, which is now a, fast flowing, emerald green. The sun has returned but it is much colder now, requiring long trousers and full gloves. The terrain is still largely a mix of gravelled bike paths and quiet lanes and is a reasonably benevolent in gradient. That will change on Wednesday when we reach the town of Lienz in the Tyrol province. Thereafter we head north, through the alps, to return to Salzburg. The pictures below show that it is impossible to put into words how stunning the scenery here is.

A) anything less than 70 kms
B) a day with no requirement to cycle anywhere at all
C) any other variation – please specify
