In Velo Veritas, Vintage Riding in Austria
Across the border, on 15 June 2014, the second In Velo Veritas will start in Korneuburg. Austria. The registration portal, at www.inveloveritas.at, is already open so you can secure your place at the starting line. Reduced registration price through 31 January.
The new starting point in Korneuburg offers ideal riding as well as a fantastic program of supporting events. And the routes are also new and improved: for the first time, there will be three different cycling distances from 70km to 140km right up to a hardcore stage of 210km. So, there is a suitable route for everyone.
The first route highlight has been revealed: the Buschberg climb. Have you ever heard of the Buschberg? Without giving too much away it can be said that the 210km and the 140km routes will head over the Buschberg. The Buschberg (491m) is the highest elevation of the Weinviertel. The name is derived from "pusk" which is old high german for "bump". It's only a couple of turns up to the top but it will make some climber hearts beat a bit faster. On the top you'll also find the lowest located mountain hut of Austria, serving an amazing, homemade "Topfenstrudel". A decision has not been made if there will be a rest stop at the top of Buschberg but you are welcome to ride the climb and taste the Strudel up there.
