    high in the hills

    August 26, 2016 in Switzerland ⋅

    Up to Oberalpass by train...
    And then ride down Alpine road with Sheril Joy and Illy (olds were not up for this section)

    Easily the coolest thing I have done on a bike to date! I was on the brakes whole descent and couldn't slow enough, there was hairpin turn upon hairpin turn, we went from 2044m at oberalpass down to tschamut at 1450m in about 5km.

    Once we got off the road and on to some gravel Sherelle took a fall (on to her bad shoulder!) just after Disentis.. her bike was not good (trip to mechanic tomoz) so we caught train at Sumvitg back to Ilanz... So only 26km on the bike!

    Today was cows in the fields with bells ringing, smells of freshly cut hay and mountains upon mountains as far as the eye can see

    In terms of risk management concerns I honestly thought the Alpine descent would be craziest thing for today but no...we rode our bikes through an active rifle range! So so so scary... I have video but no photo
