Switzerland Ride

 

Follow the journey.

This year CellCycle will finish our yearly campaign with another solo-bike ride. The route this year covers fewer vertical feet than last year but is directly across Switzerland. Stopping just short of the border with Lichtenstein, my ride is 310 miles over 5 days. For a bike, this is all the way across the country. While most of the route is through valleys, all the stops are in mountain towns and villages, each situated at least 5,000 feet in elevation. While our social media content will remain available to everyone, this travelogue will be reserved for our donors. If you donate any amount to CellCycle, you will receive a passcode on your donation receipt to view this content. I hope you will donate and join me on August 21st for this journey.
