Freistadt to Steyr Monday 14 July


Today’s ride promised to be a long one, but we were assured that apart from some challenging hills at the beginning, the rest was flat or down hill and so it proved to be – a really really long downhill through forests and then along mostly cycle paths initially alongside the Danube and in case we felt a song coming on, it wasn’t blue! Rode 88 km. But it was pretty hot and I’m not hopeful despite hydrating myself and keeping my caffeine levels up, I may not get away without a migraine. Lunch was in Enns with its town square and cafes/restaurants under umbrellas. Very civilised.

Steyr is at the confluence of the Enns annd Steyr Rivers and our room overlooks the weirs which slow the rivers down. Again it is a beautiful historic town with its own schloss which we explored. Could have been a shoppers’ paradise, but alas no time.
