As the days were becoming shorter and the temperature was starting to drop in the Swiss Alps, I did not feel the normal urge to head to the mountains for a late season cycling adventure before winter.
It wasn’t that I had lost my love for cycling. But after completing the Transcontinental Race, with a new house to move into and a baby coming soon, I had other, good, priorities. I was just happy to escape from time to time for a short ride in our beautiful neighbourhood. Then came an email from Andy at CyclingTips:
“We are looking to shoot a piece in Switzerland highlighting some of the lesser-known climbs, and a few bangers like the cobbled Gotthard Pass. Would you happen to have any riders available to shoot something over the next month or so?” In other words: would I be interested to ride and shoot Roadtripping Switzerland?
