No, not me - a train. I've cycled 25 miles today climbing 1700 feet through forests on gravel and stoney track with another 20 miles and 3000 feet to go. The headwind is strengthening and I hear an unmistakable Thomas-like whistle. A thought occurs ..... well why not? Train journeys are fun. A relaxing 90 minutes later and I'm at the top of the mountain road, Oberalppass. Then it's just a 10 mile swoop down almost 2000 feet to Andermatt. Except it's not the breeze I hoped ...

... a grand feeling of height and is certainly not for the faint hearted or anyone who does not like height!! One is simply only a few feet from the cliff edge with nothing but a rather hard steel pole every 20 or so meters to stop one going over the edge. These poles in my opinion would do more harm than good if a motorcyclist came off his/her bike and hit one!!

... towards Meiringen and then head East over Susten pass towards the town of Wassen.

As it is winter there is a big chance this road will be closed due to heavy snowfall but it will be worth seeing.

As I ride along the edge of Brienzer see lake the sun is still rather low in the sky and so is lighting up all the mountains on the other side of the lake making it great for photography. This road is ultra modern and has some mighty long tunnels on it, some of them as ...

... he suggests the National motorway. He also mentions a little known pass which has no road signs and is barely marked on maps. I went to the Tourist Office but the lady there had never heard of it - but she doesn't ride a motorcycle.

Once again, JH is very good with the "secret" locations but fails miserably when it comes to real detail. He describes the route anti-clockwise so that the turnoff is marked from Glarus. I was doing it clockwise and there is no clue in his ...
