A cycle touring photo that was posted on my Twitter account Garry Mcgivern’s Travelsonabike2 on the 26th-September-2013 I was in the Tirol Mountains on my way to Greece when I took the photo.
At the hotel last night, there was a group of English people. They were all members of the Lotus Owners Club and were on a tour of Austria in their cars. I didn’t speak to them except to say hello and ask where they were going. It was only 7 pm, and they all seemed a bit worse for wear! One of the group was definitely drunk! He told me it was downhill from the hotel to Innsbruck! Now, when somebody tells me that it’s downhill all the way, I always take it with a pinch of salt! Especially if they’re in a car! But if he didn’t notice the Fern Pass, it’s a bit worrying!
