Here's a few more Swiss riding photos:



This was quite a day - 4500ft climbing, 9500ft descending:


Some more of the 9500ft descending:


To be fair some hiking is sometimes involved (some of the 4500ft climbing):

Hi,
The first photo is in the Lotschental valley.

As it is not a bike specific trail and very popular/advertised for hikers I think it would not be much fun to bike during nice weekends in the summer. I've been there during the week in the summer and weekend in the fall.

The next photos are from around the Dent du Morcles area (col du demecre, cabane de la tourche). Getting to col du demecre definitely takes some bike portaging, and cabane de la tourche a big climb (if you're coming from col du demecre you've got a lot less climbing and can take a bike portaging shortcut)

cheers
