All together we have cycled
in six days 630 km and covered a total difference in height
of 16,000 meters. Once more we have broken our record (2004:
580 km and 14,800 meters in 7 days).
For those who are capable of even
longer and more challenging tours we like to suggest:
a. Hospental - Sustenpass - Grimselpass - Nufenenpass - Gotthardpass (160
km / 4950 m uphill), or
b. Hospental - Furkapass - Nufenenpass - Lukmanierpass - Oberalppass (210
km / 4575 m uphill), or
c. Hospental - Sustenpass - Grimselpass - Nufenenpass - Lukmanierpass - Oberalppass
(270 km / 6500 m uphill).

For us the seventh day was "Heute
Ruhetag" (day off).
It was up to my Volvo V50 to complete the trip. It is a
wonderful car and I can't think of a more appropriate maiden trip.
Driving can be a real pleasure, also between four wheels !
