^^ and the one where you snapped the bike race and wide angle of mountains are what cycling is all about.
(Edit : page 32 in case you wondered...)

Great photos!

Is it just me or is your saddle a tiny bit too high for you; you seem to be extending quite a lot at the base of the pedal stroke?

Quote snipped. Thanks, PP.

Can anyone else see the images? Based on the link,I suspect the forum software is unable to translate the links as images as they do not end with common image extensions (aka .jpg, .png).

oh man.
I've done short albums, here (hoping it works...):
Nufenen https://photos.app.goo.gl/znMNgTpAxrd3H2oj7
Gotthard, Scimfuss https://photos.app.goo.gl/KpNRorDur9wmLeU6A
Klausen https://photos.app.goo.gl/DrXPThzm9vBrSWuFA
Pragel https://photos.app.goo.gl/fThxD2E4EVqZd8pt9
Susten https://photos.app.goo.gl/gC8KvoiWJNA96wxF8
Grimsel and Oberaarsee https://photos.app.goo.gl/Rwi93VEuvFC8w2Bu5
Goms and Breithorn Furgge https://photos.app.goo.gl/oTHhKffsYEbdRzpb8

The last one was an impulse climb, I saw a signpost for a mtb road to the Breithors. It's steep, and unpaved: 1340m in 10.8 km. The firt 7k are a nice packed dirt road, but the lst 4km are rocky, really best on an mtb. But doable on a road bike, if one doesn't have a choice.
