Woop woop…I got a decent sleep last night! Surprisingly, my hip and shoulders were feeling pretty good this morning! I’ve been pleased with how the hip has held up under these mountainous conditions. More hills to come today though!
We’ve enjoyed our stay at the Campadi Rein campsite. Rustina and Roman, the owners of the campsite, kindly made a contribution to the charities. Thank you for your generosity!
The ride looked a short one on paper but we had to climb over the Oberalp Pass so it wasn’t going to be easy. Tim and I set off and immediately had to deal with a hill. This hill lasted for 10km! The road slowly snaked its way up the side of the mountain getting higher and higher. It wasn’t the steepest incline but it was long! We reached the top and took a short break. Check out these snaps from the source of the Rhine (well…near the source).
The downhill was a real treat! 10km of enjoyable cycling and sensational views. These last few days of scenery have been my favourite of the trip. The mountains have been truly spectacular. Check them out!
When we reached Andermatt we decided to take a detour. I’d spotted something on the map that looked interesting. We hopped back on our bikes and went to check it out. The place I’d spotted was called Devil’s Bridge. It was a huge rocky gorge with a series of bridges crossing a wild river. We were glad we found it! Have a look below.
We arrived at the campsite to find a car park and green field divided by a main road. Tim was sleeping in the field and we were in the car park. It’s quite a strange set up! I’ve got a long ride tomorrow and another mountain pass so I’m gonna chill to the max this evening!
