Depending on body weight and physical state I am riding a 27.5″ hard tail or 29″ e-bike fully.
Around spring 2019 we started planning a 2 to 3 day trans Alpine crossing for late summer 2019. Did some great training tours. Got all our gear ready.
In August 2019, due to lack of continuous training, we decided to postpone the trip to 2020 and plan for a more realistic full week instead (4-5 day bike trip + travel).
Yeah… the coronavirus pandemy happened and it is not clear yet if a Transalp that crosses the borders of Austria/Switzerland/Italy is feasiable this autumn. Not only that but any sport activity that puts you into risk of needing medical assistance seems irresponsible at the moment.
Currently I am optimizing travel gear and often times at the drawing board at sleepless nights: https://www.komoot.de/collection/920108/-transalp-5-tage
