Enjoy the view. All the way downhill from here.
Fusch an der Glocknerstraßeat 79km
Loads of interesting options to the East and North, but lets stick to the plan and head West.
Hook a left South towards the Felbertauern.
Fast sweepers on this leg.
Worth a stop, coffee or whatever
Either continue to Liezen to complete the lap of the Grossglockner or, if you still feel strong, hook a right into the Defereggen.
Hopfgarten in Defereggenat 164km
STOP immediately at the TownLimits and buy excellent honey at Schneider's. The beehives are right behind the house and the bees roam in the forest up the hill. Local produce does not come more local than that.
Sankt Veit in Defereggenat 174km
St Jakobat 184km
up the Stallersattel. Requires a bit of planning. The pass is a one way from the top, open from Austria South into Italy from the full hour till quarter past and the other way from Antholz in Italy north up into Austria from the half hour till quarter to.
If you've missed your timing, stop for a coffee and the view. the shack next to the road will do. The lodge at the lake not worth the walk in biking gear.
Lake Antholzat 204km
Restaurant by the lake a good spot to have a coffe or lunch, specially the terrace in good weather. Mind the timing if you are heading back. Bit further on the Biathlon Stadium is worth a cursory look. Site of the annual world cup.
