Now that shoes, cleats and a fresh supply of Vittoria Pitstop have arrived I gave my 1990 Peugeot a 60km maiden trip. Very pleased with how it handles so I guess 2019 will be my retro season...

Unusual to have a day off in the middle of the week for no other reason than “I could so I did”.

Water reload spot. Water was like a glass table really! Gorgeous sunrise for sure. Miss the sunrise rides in summer as you head out by 6am latest and the sun is already peaking over the horizon above the water. Can’t put a price on it really!!

I took my garbage out at sunrise this morning. Your sunrise looks so much nicer.

Hey, you haven’t been around much it seems. Hurricane Ridge later this season?

This is the best cylcing thread in any forum I belong to. Am I the only one who is contemplating retiring in Switzerland? Good grief, all of the Swiss guys and gals are making me very envious and I ride some amazing places here in the States.

No, you are not the only one, although the wife and I are also considering New Zealand. :lol:

The problem is, both are only that beautiful 1-2 months a year. The rest is cold and wet.

I lived in the German part of Switzerland (region of the lake of Zürich) and it is beautiful all year long! Not wet and not that cold. Rarely below 0C. Snow is only in the mountain. If you love climbs this is a very nice region. Of course it is better if you can speak German ;-) But if you want to have it warmer then go to the Italian part (Ticino).

And in Switzerland you are close to France, Germany, Austria, Italy!
