Today was one for the books! We originally planned to ride a century (104 km, 67 m) but mother nature let out a huge guffaw and cranked the thermostat up to 36 celsius (that’s 96.8 farenheit for all you Americans). I’d been scheming for the past few days to catch a train for at least part of the day and everything fell in to place when Mark and Gerard were like “yeah okay let’s take the train”. Don’t worry – we still got in over 66 kilometers in about four hours of pedaling.
We left our hotel in Chur, Switzerland (which obviously had a McDonald’s attached) just before 8 am. It was pretty cool for most of the morning and we had an amazing ride along the Rhine River on a well maintained and almost completely flat trail.
Thanks for making it down this far! I’m going to try to catch some sleep. We’re getting another early start tomorrow!
