Swiss Trip.

Just returned from another trip to the Swiss Alps.:cool: Headed down with ten friends and had an overnight stop at the amazing Bubbles Hotel.

Next day we rode down to Switzerland, via some great roads in the Vosges region, and our base in Lauterbrunnen. Paid 300 euros for eight nights at the biker friendly Valley Hostel which is on the main road in the village. Our group then split up the following day with 8 heading off to Italy.

I stayed in Switzerland to ride over the wonderful passes in the area…

Nufenen.

Grimsel

The cobbled St Gottard:w00t:

The Susten, Klausen, Brunig and many more !

For the most part we had sunny days with temperatures around 35c, but also had two days of rain in the valley which, failing as snow, closed a couple of the high passes. Temp was now down to 15c ! So i went for a hike up to Wengen to get a view of our base from above.

Had a brilliant time and look forward to a return trip…:slight_smile:

the “Oberland Rosti” is well worth the trip on its own :wink: their meat fondue even more so, I’ve stayed there since the mid 80’s :w00t: was there in early August too but with the family, even in the car the Susten and Gothard passes are a hoot :smiley:
