Too cold and too late, Italy will have to wait another year! I could take a train, but I had my share of trail and ferry rides for a while. The only way my bike is going somewhere it’s with me riding it.
Every night I map the next day’s ride and tonight I had to take the tough decision of riding towards France rather then Italy. I want to do big climbs, but I have to find warmer weather before I attempt a good one.
Switzerland has been really good with signage and has great cycling routes, I will follow route 9 which will take me to Geneva. I am always nervous the night before a good ride, tomorrow’s will have over 2000m of elevation and just over 100km. But as I like to say “I eat hills for breakfast ” 🙂
Hotel booked, food packed, bike checked, It should be a beautiful day!
