Karina Does the Alpcross
by Thomas Wozak
MY ALPCROSS CHALLENGE – 10 DAYS CYCLING ACROSS THE ALPS FROM BERNHAUPTEN TO LAGO DI GARDA; 25TH JULY – 4TH AUGUST 2016.
Never one to shy away from major challenges (and definitely more of a challenge than the delightful butt workout we had this summer), Karina embarked on the Alpcross, a notoriously difficult cycle across the Alps. If you haven’t already met Schnappi, this is your chance – and you ought to wish you won’t meet Schnappi in one of our classes ;-).
"It was not my idea. In fact I got talked into it… tried to refuse, but in the end I gave in. My best friend, Chrissi, has done two transalp tours before, and I always told her, that I do not want to do that. The thought of sitting on a bicycle saddle for numerous days in a row was just horror to me."
It is a fabulous read, with all the emotion and passion you’d need to get over the Alps conveyed in Karina’s inimitable style. Highly recommended!
