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 😉
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
