We extend our “Little”- Eddy Merckx Classic-Tour, comprising 73 miles and 4429 ft in altitude, with this 32 mile long stretch of road, to the so-called “Grand”- circuit, comprising 96 miles and 2300 ft in altitude.
This stretch of road, with ascents of up to 12 %, begins at the ATS busstop in Egg bei Thalgau Lackner, at the junction (signposted) “Hof bei Salzburg 3 km – Fuschl am See 5 km”.
We ride through a beautiful, picturesque and sharply oscillating landscape, on the quiet road towards Fuschl am See.
After we have passed the world famous Red Bull company, we have to overcome a perspiration-causing ascent via Perfalleck, before we then reach the wild, romantic and well worth seeing Stubklamm, via Tiefenbrunn and Faistenau.
The following long ascent to the Mitteregg Inn on the Gaisberg, Salzburg’s nearest mountain, via Hinterwinkl and Oberwinkl is strength-sapping but beautiful.
Strength can be mustered for the several feet in altitude to be conquered to the “Eddy Merckx Classic” start and finish point, Eugendorf, on the following terrific descent to Guggenthal - while enjoying beautiful views of the city of Salzburg.
