What a fun morning ride.
I’ve been meaning to take the road up to St. Märgen for a while now but was hesitant because it’s quite a long climb. Having tackled the road to the top of the Schauinsland last week, I was sure I’d be able to do this without too much pain.
It turns out that the climb is quite mellow and manageable, which was a welcome surprise. I was properly exhausted at the top, of course, because 16 km at an average gradient of 5% is not nothing but the views from St. Märgen and the area surrounding it, as well as the descent back down into the valley more than made up for it.
