"There" is in Switzerland, about 15 km away from Lake Constance (as starting point), so it is quite close to Austria and Germany.

The mountain on the first pic is the "Saentis" which I see most of the time on my rides as ithis mountain is somehow a little "exposed" (is that the word?).

The mountain on the 2nd pic are the "Churfirsten"; these mountains are at the mountain chain behind the "Saentis".

Very scenic region to ride, yet not that high, so I can ride almost the whole year here as no roads are closed in winter.

Roobay's pics are doing England an injustice. That's only what it looks like when it's not raining.

The pics from Switzerland are making me cry.

Here are a couple of photos from my Sunday club rides. They are taken in the Peak District in Northwest England.

Flossie- thats my back yard! If you strain hard enough you might be able to see my house from there (looking back from Roche End towards Tittesworth Res).

I can guarantee it ain't like that at the moment.

Maybe we should start a WW commune, somewhere warmish all year round and preferably not raining all the time, like here in the UK.
We could all come and go as we pleased. :D
I'm thinking of trading in my bike helmet in exchange for a snorkel and mask. :lol:
