Cycling vacation Alps

Prelude

Last year Bram and I (Bart) had finished cycling the 100 cols tour. This year we wanted to cycle in Austria or Switzerland to explore the Alps. Bram apparently talks a lot about cycling at work. Also to Jorien, who's dad used to cycle a lot when he was younger. He had gotten all excited by our stories and offered to plan this year's route. A few weeks before we left the route was finished. We received a list of village we needed to pass, including road numbers and the total distance cycled. It would involve a lot of climbing. The total distance, including a reasonable amount of detours, would be around 3300 kilometers. That would be tight in three weeks.

Gear for the next three weeks
 

We had so much rain this year that we decided to color every section of this story in which it rained blue.
