#60 InterRailing

A week flying, biking and railing in Switzerland and France

Tuesday: EasyJet flight from Madrid to Genevre, stayed the night in local FormulaOne hotel.

Wednesday: 100k ride round south side of Lac Leman via Thonon and Evian to Aigles. From Aigles took the mountain train up to Leysin.

Stayed with 'triathletes in training' Tim and Ben.

Thursday: hello to Lizbeth and AJ. Cooked curry for the gang - sorry chaps, chicken turned out a bit chewy :-(

Friday: 130km ride back round lake (north side) via Montreux and Lausanne, through Genevre and stopped in Viry

Nice ride from Viry to Aix les Bains, train to Grenoble, then back on bike to Vizille.

Sunday: Vizille to Villard Reculas - all *very* uphill. The last 10k is the back road to Alp d'Huez. Stayed in a gite next to Jimmy Riccitello who is running a camp for a group of American friends.

Monday: Cooked Chicken Tarragon for Jimmy and his mates while watching herd of goats munching local mountain.

Tuesday: Rode back down to Grenoble and 4 trains and 9 hours later ended up in Barcelona.
