Specialized’s Destination Trail – Germany
In this episode of Destination Trail, we follow Daniel Schaefer and Jon Buckell as they take their 6Fattie Stumpjumpers to the rock-strewn trails of the Bavarian Alps outside of Munich, Germany. Before the pair can get to the Alps, however, they have to negotiate the surrounding chaos brought on by the annual Oktoberfest. So to escape the masses, Daniel introduces a local’s secret—an epic system of trails along the Isar River, mere minutes from the teeming crowds. From there, the group heads to the high country to ride the ancient trails of the Alps along the border of Austria, where they’re welcomed with their own Oktoberfest feast by local guide, Bernie Stoll. Together, the trio take in the most epic views, resonant history, and awesome riding that Germany has to offer.
