An Itsy Bitsy Day

May 13 - Vienna Today really was an itsy-bitsy day. We did a bit of this and a bit of that. Started something, then switched to something else. Made a plan, changed a plan and really just did a bit of a few things. Whenever we’re in a big city, we like to do one... Continue Reading →

The Weather Plays Its Trump Card

Riding the Camel

May 11 - Graz to Bruck an der Mur Move along, nothing to see here. That was pretty much the theme of today’s ride. Not much to see. We were following the Mur River Cycle Route again and this had me thinking we’d have a ride similar to yesterday - riding a nice flat path... Continue Reading →

May 7 - Celje to Ptuj We had some hills today…some big hills…some tough hills and we huffed and puffed our way to the top, but the top was worth the effort…beautiful scenery again! The legs worked hard for it but they eyes were grateful!  We set off from Celje, the third largest city in... Continue Reading →

What a Great Ride!

May 6 - Lukovica pri Domžalah to Celje The day dawned with mist over the hills and the clock bells tolling from 5:00am. It was cold, cold, cold but not raining and there was just a hint of blue sky trying to peek between the clouds. Things were looking good. We farewelled the wonderful women... Continue Reading →
