|Lake Geneva, Switzerland to Lake Como, Italy
tour started August 2009, submitted 2 September 2009
A five day cycle trip across Switzerland starting at Geneva following Swiss bike route 1 up the Rhone valley to the Furka pass, then joining route 3 over the Gotthard pass with a super long descent to Bellnzona, and finishing up on the western shore of Lake Como in Italy. With a bus lift over the Furka this was an easy way to cycle in the heart of the Alps and time was taken along the way to stop and meet people and visit some of the castles on the route. With nearly 100 photos this is a day by day account of the journey, the people I met and places I visited along the way.
