Today, Barry, Martin, Fabian Cancellara and I rode the Gruyère Cycling Tour.
A pretty epic day!
There are loads of truly great climbs in central Switzerland which I have yet to explore. But today I rode two of the highest – amazing.
A beautiful but challenging mountain bike route above Gruyere.
And once finished – starving, Barry and I ordered all-you-can-eat authentic alpine soup from the local chalet restaurant. Barry even offered to cook. Delicious!
The Jungfrau region of the Berner Oberland in the Central Swiss Alps is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is also easily the most beautiful place I have ever cycled.
If you like hairpins, this is the climb for you.
A fantastic climb on a small, very quiet road, winding up through alpine farms and a deciduous forest.
Day 9 of the Tour d’Enfer and Greg, Scott, Andrew, Andrew, Ralph, and Doreen and…
Woohooo, Doreen on her heavy Touring bike climbed Bonette (this photo made us laugh)!
Signed as the highest road in Europe (debatable), this is a huge and beautiful climb. Perfect weather and today I decided to work hard and felt fairly good considering it’s the 8th day.
