You have two options here - do NOT be tempted to go via the Gerlos pass. It might be free, but it's very bumpy and really no fun whatsoever.

On the other hand, there's the Gerlosstraße, which runs to the south via the Krimml waterfall. A toll road €4(GBP2.30 per bike), but as usual a perfect surface - scenery highlight is a picturesque waterfall on a densly forested mountainside (Austria's highest). Buses and slow tourist trafic here on the weekends but you should have no trouble blowing them into the weeds. The road has also been recently resurface, turning the previously bumpy, concrete plateau into a section of fast sweepers, the whole road having corners with good visibility and the perfect radius to crank it over and keep it there....

Watch out for cows!
