Our Swiss bike ride began in Montreux with warm-ups around Lake Geneva

Unfortunately, the pictures are from scanned old slides, but still dramatic.

Each day involved bicycling up from the valley to beautiful hill towns.

     

In Sion we hiked up to Tourbillon and Valere - each atop their separate hills

We viewed the Gornergrat Glacier at Zermatt and Lago Maggiore

     

Back into Switzerland, we toured Castelgrande in Bellinzona and on to Biasca.

     

Over the awesome Lucomagno Pass to Disentis, Switzerland

     

Lots of climbing with beautiful views including Switzerland's Grand Canyon

We even saw Heidi's House and took a ferry across Lake Konstanz to Germany

     

Stein_am_Rhein is one of the most authentic medieval towns of Switzerland
