Above: A few years back when my friend Chris came to Europe to compete in the World Duathlon Championships in Germany.

Thomas, a triathlete who lives in Lausanne on the other side of Lake Geneva, wrote a little review of my blog – but unfortunately I couldn’t understand it.

Luckily, my good friend Leslie – of Travels with a Tin Donkey fame – speaks German:

While planning a route at Sanoodi.com, a nice Google Maps-based route planner for walkers and cyclists, I ran into Will or, respectively, him into me. He is an enthusiastic cyclist in Geneva, Switzerland, and is attempting to cycle 160,000 vertical meters in 2007. And he is only counting the uphill meters! He already is familiar with all the classic climbs in the French Alps. Go here for more information in English. Have fun planning your trips!

Danke Thomas.

Happiest while cycling uphill. More enthusiastic than talented, my 2014 Challenge is to cycle 50 great rides, slowly.
