      A beautifully surfaced road beribboned with hairpins and fast curves winds up the mountain. We intend to take the small dead-end road from the top of the pass up another 500 metres in altitude to the Oberaar lake and dam with its glorious views.

      But at the top of the Grimsel the clouds defeat us. The mountain tops are completely obscured and it's cold and windy. So we stop ...

I think I can see some switchback paths up to it, but that must be for advanced climbers or motorcycles.

      We continue to loop up the side of the mountain. I feel lucky ...

      ... it was so much easier to say to Zia Gabriella “si, si grazia” than to think of all the Italian words to decline politely with a valid excuse!

      ... east to take the Oberarl pass, or go south to take the Passo di Lucamagno and therefore go to the Italian part of Switzerland.

      Our planning was to go south, so we rode downhill for 2 km before charging up the hill - slowly but steadily. Speed has no meaning when bicycle riding for a week across the Alps. If the price for getting there by muscle power means reducing speed - than you have to do ...
