and we are done
A really great day out on the bike, starting in Meiringen and ending in Brig. I rode over the Grimsel Pass and onto the Furka Pass up to Hotel Belvedaire.
Grimsel is a bit of a nemesis of mine, so it was really good to get it done and in a lot less time than the first attempt a couple years ago.
Sadly, the Rhône Glacier, nestled in the valley near the Furka climb, has lost even more ice. It is easy to see its former resting place, the glacier now having retreated to expose the sheer rocks it has helped shape over who knows how many decades and centuries.
With the train rides and the ride itself, this was a 450km, 11-hour day with a CO2 abatement of 90kg.
