EnglishForum mentioned in VeloNews (US cycling) magazine

Switzerland is one of the countries featured in VeloNews' "Ultimate Ride Guide 2011". I met the guy who wrote the piece last summer, and he contacted me for a few comments. He took some information from the thread on EF titled "Bicycling: long-distance, mass-participation rides" and mentioned that in the article.

The author incorrectly called me American and edited my description of my ride in the AlpenBrevet a little so that it's not quite what I wrote, but the gist is OK.

Bonus points go to anyone who recognizes the lake that I'm standing in front of in the picture.

Re: EnglishForum mentioned in VeloNews (US cycling) magazine

Yep, that's the issue.

In fact, I've now realized that there is more than just the page that a friend gave a link to - there are about 8 pages on Switzerland, starting on page 98. They also have an interview with Alain Rumpf, who works at the UCI, and I've met him through other EnglishForum friends. He describes one of his favorite rides as going over the Col du Sanetsch, and I have to agree with him. You start in the vineyards of Valais (Wallis) and end up almost 2,000 meters higher next to glaciers and can then take a cable car (with your bike) down the other side into canton Bern. Because it's a dead-end road for cars, it's almost completely empty and extremely peaceful.
