There were markers along the walk down to the glacier that showed its size in years gone by. It has really shrunk in the last decade, which was quite saddening. The route to the glacier involved the cog railway, then a cable car, then 200 steps. Inside the ...

We had views, very little traffic, and only light rain! Also, it was our last day of riding before two rest days in Geneva! The hills were slow-going - it took an hour to cover the first 10km! Fortunately, the terrain became a little flatter later on. We ...
