This day has had to be considerably re-planned – due to changes to meetings in Wien and Budapest, and some engineering works at the edge of Wien.

The day will hence start on the bike – from Wien to Hennersdorf. From there it will be on to Sopron in Hungary, a border with excellent regional trains, but no long distance trains. From there I will take a GySEV InterCity train to Budapest, passing Komarno-Komarom on my way – but not crossing that border. I will cross Budapest by bike from Kelenföld to Keleti station, before then heading back westwards to Wien, entering Austria at Hegyeshalom – a border with excellent long distance and local connections. After a meeting in Wien I will then head south to Graz, and spend the night there.
