Hate you so much sometimes. :mrgreen:
At least after work on Wednesday, I can ride up to Cape de Formentor (on the Tacx Neo using a Tacx RLV). : :wink:

I think we need a dedicated 'Off the road today' photo thread.

nice one kingtom - where was this ride?

One for the pass hunters: Kunkelspass from Tamins (south side), in Grisons near Chur. It's a toll road for motorized traffic between Tamins and Vättis, so very quiet. I saw one car on the way up, and a couple motorbikes on the other side; also a couple eMTBs. It's a fairly short climb (maybe 5.5 km to the top) but very steep, the middle 3km were 13-16% per my altimeter. Also, a good bit is unpaved, but nice packed dirt with little gravel, easy with slicks. At the top, a gem of a tunnel, unlit, unpaved, with lateral opening offering spectacular views. The other side is picturesque, but easier.
I'm almost sure it's on kingtom's daily commute...

Was in Egersund (Norway) where I grew up last weekend. Found this nice little turn on an evening ride. Now it probably was there when I was a kid too, but as a kid I had no road bike.

Spotted in the wild this week while vacationing with my kids in The Galápagos Islands!! I was amazed to see dozens of cyclists there and even a kids team training there on the road!

We started at Lenzerheide, down to Bergün, Davos, Arosa and the last back to lenzerheide. Was amazing.

I grow up a village near Tamins. So i know the Kunkelspass very well Image. But the last time is more then 20 years ago. At that time it wasn't possible to ride with the roadbike.
