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.
I spend a lot of time searching for climbs.
But it’s worth remembering how much fun relaxed, social rides can be with friends.
I knew it was a stupid idea, but at least I had a backup plan.
Oh, and no parking your tank here!
I’d like to think I may have taught Martin some great Swiss cycling routes and also introduced him to the challenges of cycling uphill.
But there is no doubt that he has taught me the most important aspect to my cycling routine: The post ride meal / beer session.
