Day 3: Altmunster - Gmunden - Lambach - Linz (32km)

It was pretty hard to get out of Gmunden, with its steep hills and roads (we were far too used to well-maintained cycle paths at this point!)

We cycled through cornfields, through little villages, and on to Lambach where we caught the train to Linz. A short day again, and a little confusing anticipating how to manage getting all the bikes on the train, though we needn't have worried, the Austrians are very used to bikes. Enjoyed the refreshing aircon on the train, and also the very short walk from the train station in Linz to the Ibis over the road, which was to be our resting place for the night.

Wandered into Linz, resisting a peek at the Danube, which would be our new travelling companion for the remainder of the trip ... which would be long days of flat cycle paths (very different from the trail so far).

Had an afternoon of coffee and ice-cream, and an evening of beer garden, then Charlie and I went back early to the Ibis to put Penny to bed.
