Ride Report: Flo’s Border Dash

Posted By Gravel Union On 30 July 2020

Shimano Gravel Alliance rider Flo Nowak sent us in this photo essay of his first post-lockdown gravel ride to the Austrian/German border region. It would be fair to say we are *quite* jealous of his local riding!

The day has arrived – the borders are open again! I’m sure everybody has been suffering during the lockdown. I was super happy to have the opportunity to ride outside of my local area, but for me living in the Bavarian Alps and close to the Austrian border it appeared challenging because I was pretty limited to my Germany-only routes.

On the Friday the borders opened I was ready for my Border Dash. I took my gravel bike out for a long 100km ride through the most beautiful scenery in my area over the Austrian/German border with lots of climbing, fun trails and awesome views.
