Cycling across Europe for Sands UK – day 1

Day 1 COMPLETE! 62 miles in 5 1/2 hours. What have I taken from today:
1) cycling in 36c heat hurts
2) falling off your bike hurts
3) Switzerland has big hills

So some say the craziest part of this journey is that I am setting off after working the morning until 1300 – I say no, thats all part of the fun ūüėČ

It’s been an emotional day. Saying goodbye to some dear friends who will be leaving Switzerland and starting this journey took its toll a bit this morning. A few tears shed solved with more than a few big hugs.

Some stunning scenery of Switzerland this afternoon but I won’t lie-I’m tired. My bottom is a little sore and both hands, strangely, have blisters.

Now sitting in the steps outside of an apartment waiting for tonight’s host to finish his evening bike ride. I hope he has plenty of food for the grill as I am starving, and in need of a beer
