in almost perfect alignment
the ancient lighthouse in trieste
finally! with a view.
a kind of end
see you next time!
the real end!
by the way
as we have not found a poster from the original 1892 race, we take this as the poetic intro.
our ride and the original race are mainly following the legendary „südbahn" railway route.
vienna-inzersdorf! definitely not the most attractive part of the city. but it was around here where the original bikerace from vienna to trieste was started in 1892. in september by the way! although the wiesbauer company is maybe the biggest sponsor of roadbike races in austria these days, we want to point out that they are not sponsoring us!
maybe because we are a ride and not a race! and maybe we haven't even asked.
it's just a simple coincidence that this factory is located directly on our way to trieste at the point where vienna ends and the adventure begins!
(sorry for this long but maybe necessary intro!)
