eBikes for All
The second half of the eBike Nomads 2023 Grand Tour has to start somewhere, so… why not Vienna, one of the greatest cities in the world? If you google “What to do when visiting Vienna?” you’ll get a list so long that you could spend your entire vacation just reading through the options. All of this is to say that our brief stay won’t possibly be enough time for you to enjoy the many glories of this city. We urge you to plan your trip to arrive days early and… just be tourists. Architecture, music, theater, dining, or just plain sightseeing. Just do it.
When we do depart Vienna, it will be for good reason. We leave the stimulation of the city for the pastoral beauty of the Danube River valley and the famous-for-a-reason bike path that follows its banks for hundreds of miles.
We’ll grab a couple of days’ worth of Danube valley and make our way to Linz, where we’ll pause for a day before changing gears. From Linz, we leave the valley and head into the countryside, setting our sights straight for the Austrian Alps to the south.
We climb, we drop, we linger in valleys surrounded by some of the grandest peaks anywhere, then we’ll climb some more. Ski areas are so abundant here that it’s impossible to determine where one ends and the next starts. All that snow must melt eventually and find its way out, and we’ll follow the narrow passages that cut through to find an exit. But, like melting snow, we will find our way through, perhaps ever-so-reluctantly. Eight days past the start of this journey, we’ll glide down the southern Alps slopes into Klagenfurt with only one thought in mind: Can we do that again?
Gather in Vienna
Nomads staff will gather in Vienna on the afternoon of August 15 at the beautiful Mercure Vienna First hotel in the heart of the old city. Though this evening is not an official part of the trip, guests are welcome to connect with us at the hotel; we’ve made arrangements just in case and, space permitting, a room may be available for you. Wander museums, the old city, or just relax and prepare for the next stage of our amazing journey. Tomorrow, we begin your next great adventure.
