    high in the hills

    August 26, 2016 in Switzerland ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    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

    We are really getting high in the Alps. Welcome,
    Patience, it's really good to have you here with us. Roxy is going to join us along with Patience. They will have the opportunity to go back and start at the beginning or just pick up from here on. At any rate I am glad to them travelling with us.

    Glacier Express

    September 10, 2018 in Switzerland ⋅ 🌧 12 °C

    There isn’t a lot to say about today. It’s all about the pictures.
    The Glacier Express was stunning. It’s is the “slowest fast train in the world”. There wasn’t much fast about it. A lot of the line is single track so we pulled over quite a few times.
    It took just under 8 hours to go from St Moritz to Zermatt. We dropped down to 600m and at the highest were about 2000m.
    Most of the passengers in my car were Canadian, American or German. The guy sitting opposite me was German and his English was better than my German but only just.
    I started out sitting with my back to the direction of travel but there were some empty seats so I was able to move. At Chur we changed direction as we went back the way we came and that was only 2 hours in.
    It was a long day but very much worth it.
    Zermatt is a car free town I was picked up in an electric vehicle that was more or less an oversized golf cart.

    The pictures don’t do it justice, please forgive the glare/reflections, all the photos were taken through a window.
