Bike Ride in Austria
Here's one for my friend Mike, (W8MDE) who is also known as "The Recumbent Conspiracy Theorists". I've worked Austria many times (11 now and 7 of them have been this year) in the last few years; but my contacts have usually revolved around "skiing". Mike is a bicycle enthusiast and until my recent back problems, me too. Mike inspired me to purchase my Vibroplex Standard Iambic key which has greatly enabled me to work those 30 and 17 meter DX stations.
I'm too old to be doing this kind of riding now; but: honestly, I wouldn't have the "guts" to try this treacherous downhill trek. Mike, (W8MDE) on the other hand, is a very good rider, and I could see an example of him, and his adventurous spirit, clearly in this video.
