  • Walking Down The Jura

    Walking Down The Jura

    Today I woke up and instead of cycling up to see this view and have a meal I decided to do the opposite. I would walk down. Two or three summers ago I walked up and they took four or five hours. Walking down is much easier. One or two bits are steep and my […]

  • Relaxing Cows – The Right Crowd To Be With During A Pandemic

    Relaxing Cows – The Right Crowd To Be With During A Pandemic

    During a pandemic it makes sense to go to the mountains and it makes sense to walk where you have space to the left and right to keep social distancing. Today I saw the cows near St Cergue and they were all sitting and relaxing, chewing the cud, waiting for the tourist day to open. […]

    From Arnex to the Signal De Bougy and Back

    Cycling from Arnex to the Signal de Bougy and back is a nice ride that takes you along the lake through the lower part of Nyon, Gland towards Rolle, and from Rolle up towards Perroy, Aubonne, Pizy, The Signal de bougy and back down on the other side. This route can be ridden both ways. […]

    Day 35 of Self-Isolation in Switzerland – A Hike To La Barillette.

    Today I went for a Hike from La Barillette to La Barillette. It’s a shame that the restaurant wasn’t open to the public. It is currently marked as private, and scheduled to open on the first of May. Today I didn’t expect to do a long and physical hike. I expected to complete my usual […]

  • A walk Above the Woods

    A walk Above the Woods

    Sometimes a walk above the woods is easy. I don’t mean walking while flying hanging from a parapente. I mean walking at an altitude where there are fewer trees. The walk from the transmission mast of La Bariellette to La Dôle is an easy walk that I have done many times. Sometimes I have done […]

  • On thermal inversions

    Thermal inversions are a great part of life in valleys. Whilst you’re living down in the glacial trough you’re waking up every morning to the knowledge that you won’t see the sun for the next few days… until the wind shifts. If you’ve got the time during daylight hours though you have the option of […]
