Story by Peter from Sint-Niklaas, Belgium, submitted on 08/02/2009
Beklimming Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse. 85km,43 omhoog en 42 naar beneden :lol: Gestart in Heiligenblut 1286hm tot boven op de Edelweiss spitze(hoogste punt 2568hm). Dan de afdaling tot Fusch an der Grosslocknerstrasse(825hm)rechtomkeer en terug naar boven. De kant vanaf Fusch is wel een tikkeltje zwaarder dan vanaf Heiligenblut. Vanaf Fusch is er nergens een recuperatiepunt en blijft de weg altijd oplopen tussen de 9 en 10% met pieken tot 14% De kant vanaf Heiligenblut is iets langer maar heeft wel 2x een stuk afdaling(wat dan weer niet zo leuk is op de terugweg). Door de vele wagens en motoren onderweg is vol gaan in de afdaling niet een optie...max speed 78km/h Klim vanaf Heiligenblut 14,9km/h gem vanaf Fusch 12,1km/h gem Mooi dagje gehad

Story by Koen de Koning from Venlo, Holland, submitted on 09/08/2007
I climbed Grossglockner in August of 2007. We came back from our holiday in Slovenia and my father and I (Im only 16 years old!) decided to climb the Grossglockner on our way back home. My little brother and my mom drove up by car. The first few kilometers were quite steep, but not that heavy. After a few kilometers, the way went a bit down again. At the roundabout I had to wait for my dad (he climbs a bit slower than me) becouse I didnt know wich way I had to go. The second part of the Grossglockner was even havier than the first part. The view was magnificant! My father hadnt taken a good look at the mountains profile as I did. He had completely underestimated how steep it was. At a hight of approximately 2300m it started to get cloudy. The last few kilometers were very heavy because you couldnt see where you were and how far it was to the summit. Finnaly I saw some parking spaces and I knew I was there. It was awfully cold up there! Only 1 degree above zero! We didnt drive all the way up to the Edelweissspitze (we climbed up to Hochtor). We had to drive another 10 hours back home, so we couldnt afford it to waste even more time. About 5 mins later, my dad arrived. It was a great experience!

June 2007 - Cycled up to Edelweisspitze from Camping Wolferglut in Bruck. Bike is 2003 Marin Mount Vision - started at 11am and got to top at approx 2pm. Weather was good until 2000m when I went into the clouds - by the time I got to the top it was just above freezing! Stopped at top for coffee and gulash soup, got my waterproof jacket, 2nd pair of socks and leg warmers on and then heading back to Bruck. Fasted speed going back was 43.2mph - not bad for a mount bike with off road tyres! A fantastic challenge that I dont regret doing.
