OZ/PA9CW/p SOTA by bicycle.

Next week I will travel from Oosterhout to Skagen in OZ by bicycle. My main goal is to make some distance for training Paris-Brest-Paris 2019. I will travel about 100 á 125 km a day. Never been in OZ, so I take some HF gear with me. But it will be vy vy light. The KX1 or MTR 3 and a 4 meter pole, antenne will be a EFHW 40/30/20. Battery powered by penlights. So maybe 1 or 2 W out.
On my route to Skagen there will be 6 SOTA summits. It will be:
OZ/OZ-001 : is accessible by bike. Found on Google Maps.
OZ/OZ-003 : ?
OZ/OZ-004 : is accessible by bike. Found on Google Maps.
OZ/OZ-008 : is accessible by bike. Found on Google Maps.
OZ/OZ-012 : ?
OZ/OZ-007 : ?

Does anyone know if the other summits are accessible by bike ? Or accessible via a small walk ? I don’t want to leave my bicycle to long behind. You never know…

Hello Tonnie

I wish you a good staying power in the PBP 2019…but first a beautiful time in OZ!

Almost every year I go for a bike holiday … and sometimes I do a summit by mountainbike.

Hope to get you as OZ/PA9CW/P

Dear Kjell

Thanks for the nice info. That’s very good to hear. Maybe we will work on one of the summits.

Hi Andy,

thanks for the wishes. It sure is a great event. The LEL 2017 was not a succes. I had to stop after about 950 km. Nice to read here on the forum that there are more “Audax people” :slight_smile: -)

Armin,

Thanks, i will enjoy my stay in OZ. Maybe we will work from one of the summits. I will place an alert on the web.
After OZ tour i will enjoy PBP. I hope to finish the ride, in good health. Just like in 2015.

These summits are also accessible by bike:
OZ/OZ-009 recommended, nice view, picnic table on summit
OZ/OZ-010 neither view nor infrastructure
OZ/OZ-005 Møn island, the real summit is a cycle-on, has a nice view and is approx 500 m west of the SOTA co-ordinates. Camping site nearby, SW of the summit.

According to DHM terrain model (LIDAR-derived) it is bang-on. Careful, as 500m west would take you outside of the AZ:

Sri, 250 m. At least it feels like the point of highest elevation. :wink:

Hi Pom.

You are exactly right! That’s where I think it is too. What you have revealed is that the tweaks we made to the positions (also some elevations) in 2016 somehow hadn’t made it to the DB. :scream:

We’ll get that fixed shortly.

Thanks,

Simon

Thanks for the info about OZ/OZ-009, 010 and 005. But those summits are not quit on my route. Maybe 009 is a little off the route and could be done. But I’m not sure about that. Maybe when I have enough time left.
This will be my planned route. If all goes wel…
