Took the Commie bike for a short spin to Fountainstown yesterday to blow some of the cobwebs out of it. Luckily I didn’t blow anything else out of it :thumbsup2:

Pass of Keimaneigh. The place gets it’s name (Ceim an Fhia, the Step of the Deer) from an old legend that a deer running from hounds jumped from the rocky outcrop at the right to the slightly lower outcrop at the left

Day 10 – Euro Trip

Day 10 – Euro Trip

Had a bit of a sleep in this morning as breakfast wasn’t being served till 7.30, and a fine brekkie it was. Nothing much to report back on today. Rode out of lichenstien and back into Switzerland. Took a road that was adjacent to I imagine a massive lake of some sort. Went on for miles. Weather was nice today, sunny and 17c. Perfect for biking. Rode a lovely road coming into Baden Baden, through forest with loads of bends & switchbacks. Lots of signs on the road with pics of bikers with knee down. Must be a haunt with bikers. Back into France tomorrow for 2 nights before catching ferry in Cherbourg Friday night.

Day 9 Euro Trip

Day 9 Euro Trip

Well it blew a Gale last nigh in Northern Italy. Didn’t sleep well as I didn’t know if the bike would blow over, or secondly, what type of neighbour hood I was parked in. Got a dose of the trots during the night too, fuck me, I pity the other guest who shared the same bathroom. At least it happened close to a Jack’s😀


Anyway, bike was fine this morning. Gave the chain a good old spraying last night after arriving. Headed off around 7.30 and had only 270km & 5hrs riding. Ride out of Trento was straight forward. Lovely snow capped mountains all around me. Seen a sign for Stelvio pass. This was not on my itenary, but if I’m this close, I’m going to do it.

As it happens, the pass was closed, but I did do another one which was unreal. Way up in the Alps with deep snow off each side. Kept to the speed limit as I didn’t want hassle from Swiss coppers. Didn’t even have to pay the toll for the pass, just got waved through. Got down to 4c up there. Highlight of my trip by far.

The Sat nav took me on a route that got me onto some sort of glazier train thingy. You drove on to this sort of open carriage train,paid 21 Swiss France and went through a tunnel for about 15 mind. From there is was 60km to vaduz.

Staying in a hostel, just had bite to eat. Dodgy small bowl of fish chowder in a watery, oily base, 2 pints of beer……26 fucking Euro it worked out.

Get me the fuck out of here. Back to Get many tomorrow.
