Hard on the Border
Mountain Bike Tour to the Austrian Border

We start after the bus stop in Ried (1400 m), at the end of the reservoir. There the old Pfitscher Strasse branches off to the left, leading us along the unstraightened Pfitscher Bach stream through a scenic area. After about 3 km we turn towards Fußendross, on the main road again to the left up towards Kematen (1440 m). You can make a detour into the village or continue on the road below (towards Grube). Stay on this road and ignore all the side roads. After a good 15 km, past St. Jakob and the turnoff to Stein, you finally reach the Pfitscher-Joch road. Now the road is no longer asphalted and the ascent is pleasant. The panorama gets wider and wider and after about 10 km we have made it, we are at the Pfitscher Joch (2275 m). We can continue past the Joch lakes to the former border house and then cycle back up to the Pfitscher Joch house. Return along the same road. As soon as we reach the first houses, we descend to the left and ride out on the new valley road to the starting point.
