In the early Autumn I made a trip to Switzerland, where I not only made over a dozen new friends but also got to explore with Visit Switzerland & the Adventure Travel & Trade Association the sustainable adventure travel possibilities of Ticino, the Valais, Andermatt and Interlaken Regions! Here are some impressions to make you wanna pack your bags & hop on a train to Switzerland 🇨🇭
Last spring I installed the last time new tires on my Pelago Stavanger Bike - the reTyre One tires, which are compatible with a variety of reTyre Skins. During the past months I rode the Gravel Chaser Skin whenever the asphalt stopped and the off-road adventures started, and these skins gave me confidence when cornering and great grip in uneven surfaces.
Exploring the country by bike and camping out - bikepacking and bike-touring has been massively popular during the last year, for a good reason - it’s a much better way to go for a road-trip than by car, and you’re able to see more than by hiking. I too went exploring Northern Norway this “summer” (it was slightly moist!) and used a combination of traditional bike-touring Panniers and bikepacking bags, which allowed me to have all my kit close at hand while on the road. This setup has been working a charm for me and continues to serve me well on my local trips - a good reason to tell you more about it though!
