After the big tour in North America last year, this year we decided for an easy to organize tour in Switzerland.
On the fourth day of the tour we crossed Maclaren Pass, the second highest pass with a public road in Alaska.
Our first day on the Alpine Bike Route with cows and other bikers.
Strange weather after a wonderful breakfast.
For once again a vacation in Switzerland.
First bear sighting before Bow Pass.
On the second day of the tour we passed the Columbia Icefield and Sunwapta Pass in strong winds.
After the onset of winter a week ago, we wanted to go once again with the tandem in the mountains in beautiful weather, before the passes are definitely closed due to winter closure.
The Furka Pass was due to the past warm days already free of snow again, at the Gotthard Pass but there was still "enough" snow on the old pass road ... Who loves his bike, who pushes :-)
We were not able to do our summer vacation tour this year until September.
Since we received too few registrations for the tandem club tour over the Brünig and the grosse Scheidegg, we converted the first two days of our tour to a tandem club tour.
Afterwards we drove "alone" through the Jura and along the Ain to Lyon.
Very nice route over the Glaubenberg pass.
In order to organize a tandem tour in the fall, we wanted to drive parts of the route first, because the own impression despite accurate maps and elevation profiles can not be replaced...
On a beautiful Saturday and rainy Sunday we made a strenuous but beautiful tandem tour south of Lake Geneva.
On our first stages we got to know Norway in the rain.
We supplemented the sporty weekend tour over the Lukmanier and Oberalp passes from the tandem club with the crossing of the Nufenen pass the day before.
We took advantage of a beautiful September weekend to once again experience a tandem tour with bag and baggage.
With "light" luggage over the hills.
Our "king stage" over the Lindis Pass.
Drive along the highest paved road in New Zealand.
Three days of relatively easy tandem riding
Exhausting 80km with ferry crossing.
As announced, we traveled by train last weekend from Christchurch on the east coast to Greymouth on the west coast.
Last Saturday we did a tandem tour over the hills south of Christchurch.
