You EFers are amazing! I knew you would have the answer to my little problem - lots of good tips to check out and will look at them - hopeful i will find something in English
And yes, whilst I am fitter than I look (which seems to baffle those in my spin classes!) already feeling the Swiss will kick my butt! But at least there is a couple of months to try and get better before the real cycling starts.
Been looking at sportives too - seems to be a nice one Lausanne to Lausanne in May, anyone dones this?
