I knew that the passes would be closed, but I wanted to go anyway. It turned out to be a beautiful day, despite a little hiccup in the mountains.
A surprise ride on a surprisingly beautiful day. With added drama!
The sun was deceptive – it was cold outside. We stuck to it for a couple of hours but finally slunk home to hot chocolate and fondue.
Rain was in the forecast for the weekend so I snuck out of Basel for a few hours and got in short ride. Perfect weather – I wonder how long that will last?
I took a couple of hours to check out Passwang Pass – again – and the pass I’d been told about on the other side of the ridge. It was another beautiful day in Switzerland and the green hills made for an excellent backdrop to some excellent roads.
I took the day to explore the area south of Basel, down along the Swiss/French border. It was even more pleasant than I expected! I took a LOT of photos because I just couldn’t get over how every single road was so picturesque and entertaining. To go for a six hour ride and never once get bored really is something to crow about!
Some of the rides I’ve been taking don’t really justify an entire entry here, but I’d still like to share the experience and the few photos I have. So I’ll just keep adding stories to this page, new stuff at the top so that you can easily find it. Sound good? I think so!
Because of the chaos that is surrounding my attempts to change the hosting of my website, I haven’t been posting much here. But some things just cannot wait and I am pleased to present to you my first Swiss Ride Report! It is short, but it was fun to take and I’m looking forward to adding some more rides in the (near) future.
