From the Mendel Pass we continue to the right and approach the Penegal. The road is paved and in good shape. So we'll get there quickly. The view from here is wonderful. You can see the Bolzano soil with countless mountains in the background. Even the Weisshorn from the day before can still be seen.However, we don't stay long and make our way to the Bergner Kreuz. The road turns into a forest road and then into a hiking trail. There are also several steep climbs and carrying passages. A lot can be ridden with the eBike, but it is often too steep for me with a non-powered bike.But that shouldn't put you off. The view from the Bergner Kreuz is once again awesome. Similar to the one from Penegal, but with the knowledge that you have made it this far by bike, it is a lot better. If you are looking for the kick, stand at the abyss - before the cross it goes down several hundred meters vertically.Nature is constantly changing and the following kilometers bring out great mountain meadows hidden in the forest. It is a lot of fun to drive through this area, because we have no idea what will be waiting for us after the next bend.From the Fondo Alm it goes very steeply up to the Felixer Weiher. Here you can relax and eat well. After refreshment, we continue northwards and end up in very steep terrain that is not drivable. We have to carry the bikes down the mountain for a long distance and under no circumstances slip. That would result in a hospital visit.For this reason, the last part of the route is not recommended. It is better to follow the path to St. Felix and Our Lady in the Forest and drive over the Gampenpass into the valley.
