    Gotthard Pass to Claro.

    July 17, 2017 in Switzerland ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Wow, what a ride. Among our best ever.
    Today's ride included almost every cycling condition I can think of, with the exception of rain - climbing & descending, bitumen, 12km of cobblestones -3 up & 9 down, gravel and one-track, busy traffic, no traffic, headwinds, crosswinds and even briefly a tailwind.
    It was the highest altitude we've ever ridden at and the biggest descent we've ever done. We dropped about 1850mts in height today. And the road has to be seen to be believed. Most of the descent was on cobblestones. Thank heavens we were on touring bikes and not road bikes like some. Everyone was taking it slow and careful, even the smattering of motor bikes making the descent.
    After we reached Airolo, the descent was a gentle downhill, alongside the most picturesque mountain steam, for the rest of the day.

    Camping Al Censo

    Um halb acht kommen wir dann an und begrüßen die bereits Dasitzenden wie Uwe, Michi, Bianca und Freunde von Viti.

    Noch ist es hell und wir beeilen uns Zelt und Bus für die Nacht zu richten. Meike und Maria erkunden dann auch erstmal den Zeltplatz und im Anschluss wird gekocht. Es ist spät deshalb gibt es einfach Nudeln mit Tomatensauce. Wir teilen unser Mahl mit Viti, der von Zuhause selbstgemachte Käse - Spinat-Spätzle mitgebracht hat. Mmmhh lecker schmeckt das alles.

    Langsam trudeln auch die anderen wie Tomekk, Lydia und Flo mit Anhängseln ein. Es wird aufgebaut, geplaudert und gechillt. Wir lassen den Abend ruhig ausklingen.
