September 22, 2007 (Switzerland) – We received this photo and brief note from one of our long time writers, Steve Bellerby, who is biking in Switzerland and just climbed up one of the many peaks there.
Hey Look Where I Biked up To!
Wow the weather turned on in Switzerland… a perfect antidote to the Dutch grayness that prevailed since leaving Canada. The road thinned, turned to gravel, then completely disappeared into lumpy steep rock and I had to carry the bike the last 2km over this col. Then another couple of km back down to the road about 200m lower than the paved road (Col de la Croix, 1,770m) that I was looking for.
Stunning cycling… or was it hiking?
