Loire Bike Tour Day 1

The first day of the bike tour was a slow start, we went and picked up our bike and made a start into the ride. Some of us hadn't been on bike for years, so it was a good time to get used to being on a bike seat again.


We left Switzerland on the 3rd and went into France, via Paris and Tours. It was a long day of catching trains and not much else happening, so not many photos. It was noticeably warmer in France, as we'd come out of the mountains.


Our last day in Swizerland was in Basel. We took the train from Interlaken in the morning and dropped our bags at the Hotel (Hotel Euler) and went looking around town. Our first stop was at a cafe in the park, where we spent the last of our swiss franks(*). We were 10 rappen short, but we told the lady at the cafe how we were leaving Switzerland that day and were getting rid of our money and she was very nice and let us off.

Interlaken Days 3 and Thun

Our third day in Interlaken was pretty wet, it rained most of the day. We spent the day reading in cafes and walking along the streets.

Interlaken Days 1 and 2

We arrived in Interlaken from Chur looking forward to being in the mountains again. The weather forecast for the next few days was looking a little bleak, but it was clear on the day we arrived so we made arrangements to go straight up to Schilthorn and got to Piz Gloria.
