From Lago Maggiore to Ventimiglia

Post by tam » Sat Aug 24, 2019 8:49 am

Hi,

I just came back from a trip through the Alps. On the way south, we took the TET from Lago Maggiore to Ventimiglia. There were 3 points, where we had to turn back and find a way around.

1. A gate at N45 19.945 E7 34.593 above the wind mill, and many hikers (maybe an event), so we didn't want to risk any troubles.
2. A steep section at N45 00.814 E6 51.463, there was a short but heavy rain just before we arrived, I was able to climb with my 690 and Anakee Wild, but a friend with a TransAlp and not so good tires (experienced offroad rider) was not. Would have been possible when dry, I think
3. Gardetta- Preit, closed from 10-20 August with electronic gates. We tried, and a friendly guy opened the first gate for us, but the second gate on top at N44 24.252 E7 02.488 was closed.

It was so much fun, thanks to all the people who helped to create the TET.

There was also another point, where we had to turn around, because of a little river, it was definately too much for adv-bikes with luggage.

WP River: N45 15.304 E7 47.547, this whole section is in a forest with trails which seems to be unridden for month. And of course you're not allowed to ride there. We came for the south, the green track is from TET-ITALY-20190715
