Saturday, 2018-09-08: From Mittenwald to the Kaltwasserkarspitze

I rode my bicycle to the main train station of Nuremberg where I entered the 06:29 train to Munich. After entering the train I folded my bicycle and put it into a bag to avoid an extra fee for the bicycle transport.

In Munich, I changed to another train to Mittenwald. I met a nice cyclist with a cyclocross bike who wanted to ride from Garmisch Partenkirchen to Rome. He was using a  bike-packing setup with only one big saddle bag. Today his destination was Gries am Brenner. We had a nice conversation and he stayed on the train until  Mittenwald where we arrived at 09:53.

I unfolded my bicycle while he checked his tire pressure at the bicycle shop at the train station, then we rode together to Scharnitz using the gravel road near the Isar river.

In Scharnitz he continued south towards Seefeld whereas I turned east into the Hinterau valley…
