Rest day

It’s been a tough few days since we left Basel in Switzerland, as we’ve been cycling over many of Switzerlands mountain passes, and we have plenty more to go! including the famous Gotthard Pass before we finally reach Italy (lake como) The scenery is absolutely stunning, and the people here are so friendly, there are water fountains everywhere so it’s easy to refill, they even have chopped wood and fire pits by the side of the lake/s which is free to use!!  Gabs is doing just great, there’s no stopping her! as for me…well I felt fine this morning, but later on this afternoon whilst climbing ‘another’ mountain pass I suddenly felt like I was pulling a 2 ton car behind me, my bike and trailer do weigh 95kg! but that’s no excuse, the last couple of months may have just caught up with me, like I say, Gabs is fine! ….she’s amazing! so it’s a well earned day off tomorrow, resting ‘MY’ legs! here’s a few pics of our last couple of days. We are currently in Wassen, you can see it on the map below.

  3. Hi both. We met you a few days before the start, we were at the Escape bike shop just outside Ingleton, you were filling up with water whilst doing a dry run. We’re following your progress, don’t know how your legs manage it. Love the pictures. Stay safe both of you. Best wishes.
