Late Summer Ride #4

Trotz des kühlen und verhangenen Wetters kamen um die 30 Fahrzeuge zur vierten spätsommerlichen Ausfahrt über die Wiener Höhenstraße. Es wurde ein entspannter Tag am Kahlenbergparkplatz mit viel Zeit für Austausch zwischen Gleichgesinnten und gemütlichem Beisammensein sowie einen Besuch der beeindruckenden Panoramaterrasse mit einzigartigem Blick über Wien. Der Hauptbestandteil und zentrale Programmpunkt – die Ausfahrt über die Höhenstraße – wurde auch dieses Jahr wieder zum Highlight unseres (heuer im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes luftgekühlten) Treffens. Wir bedanken uns bei allen Teilnehmern für Ihre Unterstützung, sowohl durch das Erscheinen als auch durch die Spenden, ohne die wir diese Veranstaltung nicht jedes Jahr aufs Neue organisieren könnten. Wir freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen, spätestens im nächsten Jahr zum ersten großen Jubiläum!
