Touring Tuesday - The Alps

A cyclist's dream: Paved road, no cars & spectacular scenery all around (photo by Piaw Na)
This week's post features the 2014 tour through the Alps of Italy, Austria, Switzerland and Lichtenstein by Piaw Na and friends. Even though they started on June 30, the weather on the first day was very cold as they went through the mountains. Each day of their trip has a separate page on his blog, including a map with data such as total mileage, average speed and elevation gain. There are several photos for each day, featuring spectacular scenery. I was amazed at how many paved roads there were with very few cars on them. The blog also contains an occasional short video like the one below that shows the fog they had to deal with on a mountain pass.
