Simon posted a comment describing how great this route was. That was all the motivation I needed.
Starting from UCI headquarters in Aigle, Switzerland – these are two beautiful climbs into the Vaudoise alps.
These central Switzerland climbs are as good as it gets.
Sunday was the 5th and last big ride on this Italy / East Swiss trip and one of the best.
One of the toughest rides excluding cyclosportives that I have ever done.
This was my third time doing this well organized event. It’s an absolutely beautiful route, surrounded by Swiss mountains throughout.
It’s becoming the summer of beautiful Alpine Lake / Dam rides. But this time I went another 14 kilometres past the dam.
This is one of my very favourite cycling routes. A steep, beautiful climb, surrounded by high mountains.
