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.
The Cyclotour du Léman has several thousand people cycling around Lake Geneva.
There is also a mountain route through the Juras (only about 160 people) and since I circled the lake last year, this year I chose “La Montagnarde.”
The final day of our mini Swiss Alps cycling trip. We had driven from Gstaad…
This is cycling paradise with signed routes everywhere, perfectly surfaced roads up high, and scenery to die for.
The French Alps are savage and exciting. But the Swiss Alps always seem picture-postcard beautiful.
The 62nd Tour de Romandie started today. Romandie (Romandy) is the French region of Switzerland so the entire Tour is near me. Eric, Katy and I went to watch the prologue on the lake front of downtown Geneva.
