Fantastic photos.....everyone looks as though we were having a really great time.

We were over in Evian at the weekend and saw some of the diehards who were doing the whole tour....it almost made me want to do it myself next year. (Almost!)

And when I came home today there was a letter from the organizers saying that they would love to see me again this year, as I, due to my uncomplicated approach to everyone, was such a great participant last year and my aura was giving the whole event that glossy feeling which makes the lives of everybody so much more enjoyable.....at least that is what I think....it is in French so I actually don't know....just guessing

Tempting, even though my stamina is nowhere near good enough for the 180km.

There's also logistics...anyone from Zurich/zug going?

The route is flat as a pancake so you just have to keep your balance at a reasonable speed ...and it is only 175 km.....

I will most likely go....99%.

Last year I took a hotel but this year I will bring a small tent and stay at a camp site. The start is too early for leaving home (Bülach) in the morning.

I could put another bike on the car roof if you want to go along....?

Thanks for the offer!

I'll need to consult with SWMBO; we might take the opportunity to visit her parents in geneva and crash there...I'll have a think about it? I don't think it's practical to drive to the start from Unterageri the same morning.

OK....good idea. It is way to early to go there in the morning.

See you at the starting line
