There is also a basic computer on it showing kms, current speed and average speed. Mine stopped working after 38 km, the others' have different results but Giacomino and Mariangela smartly brought their own bikes and their computer says we did 61 km at the end of the day. For my son's astonishment, our average speed has been around 18 km/h - his average speed his around 30 km/h training, including a lot of climbing while here the road was almost all flat. Ok: we are taking it easy.

Not so friendly instead the road into Linz, at the end of the day: a moderate climb on a quite narrow two ways bike lane beside a big high traffic road with cars, busses and trucks driving in the opposite direction. Scary. We reach our hotel more stressed than tired and decide at once that we'll visit the center after dinner.
That's my 3rd time in Linz: I have been here with my parents when I was a child and later with my husband in a campervan. I remember the rich gothic cathedral and i still prefer the contemporary buildings on the same square. The night walk ends with a drink in a typical trinkengarten: litterally a garden when you can take a drink. Small tables and chairs scattered around under the trees, soft lanterns light, relaxed chattering in a low pleasant voice. Beers and apfelsaft.
