Brick Rides the Alps July 2015

Well I thought I would give this a try. I’ve never blogged, is that a word? Anyway here goes.

Since before I started riding I read and heard about riding in the Alps. Yes, those Alps the ones in Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, Italy! One day in like February this year I was saying something about my desire to Ride the Alps. So Patricia says, “You should go before you can’t”.ย  I say, OK… let the planning start. I wanted to see if I could afford to do this. I never wanted to do a guided tour I just wanted to go Ride the Alps. The more I looked the more I realized I could do this.

So then in April I’m almost set to start making reservations I had set it up for a 10 day ride. Patricia says to me, “What’s the most expensive part of your trip?” The airplane ticket, I say. The she says, “Well then you should stay longer”! Who are you and what did you do with my Patricia? So now it’s a 20 day trip. I fly into Munich, Germany and rent a bike and start my ride on July 1st with my friend Chris Jernigan.

More later….

  1. Ok it’s getting very real now! i Just Checked-in and got my boarding passes. I’m ready to go.
    Can’t wait! I’ve been waiting a LOOOONG time to do this trip! I kind of always thought that I hadn’t seen it all here but you know, I’ve ridden in all but Hawaii, I’ve ridden in Canada and Mexico and well it’s time to cross the pond and finally Ride the Alps!

    Perhaps I’ll get a chance to check in during a lay over? If not I’ll post again from Germany!
