Riding in the Alps

I’ve been in Switzerland for 2 weeks now, and a large part of that time has been spent on my bike….whether I’m training or resting.;-) The climb we do most often is the long 14km climb from Aigle back up to Leysin. I was looking at the Tour Guide for this year’s Tour de France, and it showed a picture of “Our Hill” from a stage race a couple of years ago…

Another one of my favorite rides is from Leysin to Sion. It’s a deceptively flat ride because there’s always a huge headwind on the way back as it funnels between the mountains. I set out with Abi’s boyfriend Steve for an “easy” ride a few days ago. It was all fun ‘n games on the way out, but when we turned back into the headwind, it became the Hwy to Hell.;-) It’s still one of my favorite rides – challenging but like everywhere else here, the scenery is amazing.
