There‘s nothing quite like the Alps to inspire a keen cyclist. Big mountains, smooth roads, high passes and epic views – it‘s a challenge of man and machine versus gravity and geology. The Grossglockner has a special draw. As the highest mountain in the eastern Alps, it lures riders into its craggy embrace. But it‘s not for the faint-hearted.
Several decades separate grandfather from grandson, but you wouldn‘t know it from the way that they ride together. Martin was exploring these roads in his youth, on a bike far less sophisticated than the Agree Hybrid he now owns. For Andreas, this is his first experience of high Alpine passes, but the opportunity to ride with his granddad is too good to pass up.
