Swiss Sunflowers!

Sunflowers close up, originally uploaded by nice_cup_of_tea.

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny autumn day (once the mist had cleared) and we (me, Alan and Urs) met at Zurich Aiport and skated along the no.5 bike and skate route which crosses Switzerland. We covered about 40km in 4 hours, and got as far as Brugge, stopping at Baden for lunch.

It was such a lovely skate, gorgeous weather, good company, lovely countryside and the smell of Autumn in the air! I tackled lots of downhill sections without major mishap, although I was pretty exhausted by the end of the day!
