Switzerland - If the weather holds!

Hi folks,

here is another ride-report from the european alps.

Switzerland 2007

7th- 10th June

If the weather holds!!


The Prepping
The Club-ride of the Free-Biker Sonthofen is a fixed item in the annual calendar and always starts off with the question: Where-to this time??

As to me Switzerland is the crown jewel of the Alps, plans were ripe for a Swiss-Ride, regrettably the fact that Switzerland is quite expensive still holds true.

Time for a snoop around the Swiss Forums and I hit pay dirt at http://www.toeff-forum.ch, the reply came 2 hrs after posting my queries. Great accommodation and food was promised at the Simons-Herberge, and SFR 32 for the night with SFR 13 dinners, the email was promptly on its way.
Just as prompt was the reply…. BINGO!!!
Switzerland…here we come!!

Lake Brienz




To be more exact: the Bernese High Country, one of my favourites and one of the prettiest areas of the Alps!
7 bikes and 10 people, with Hannes splitting off at Meiringen for his trip to Lake Geneva.
The forecast was so/ so…a bit of everything from sunshine to thunderstorms.
What the hell, let’s go with the usual 9am start!
