Off to Europe

Just wanted to say good-bye for a while to the group here. Beau and I, along with 8 other riders, are off to Europe for the Alps UniTour. Some riders have already left - the California contingent leaves tomorrow at 4pm.

We start riding next Monday in Fussen, Germany and will finish in Geneva, Switzerland, 19 days, 880km and 11000m of up and down later.

You can follow us on the website, post messages in our guestbook and (hopefully) see daily updates of pictures and stories of how it goes climbing 8 Alpine passes and eating mass quantities of fine food.


have a gr8 time!

Ride like the wind. Say “hi” to Florian and Christian for me.

Good luck there Nathan, hope you enjoy Europe :wink:

I wish I could be there.

Enjoy yourselves, and good luck!

Have a great trip!

I will be looking forward to the photos and ride stories. I think I did thorough enough reading of your training ride reports and photos that I should be in good enough shape to read whatever the Alps can dish out. Bring it on!


sick to my stomach

I just saw this for the first time… and I’m headed into germany that monday… and staying for that amount of time!

coincidence?? I think not!

too bad i’m going with someone… so won’t be able to join… it makes me sick to think of what i’m missing out on :frowning:

Re: Off to Europe

Hey folks, the best of luck in your AUT. Or should I rather say the
best of stamina, a firm butt and lots of fun?! If Europe were smaller
(meaning I would be closer), I’d come to cheer you on. Looking forward
to pics and stories.

Take care!

Ken, thanks for checking in. I have been eagerly awaiting the daily updates. I hope he is able to get them up soon. I sure hope David’s ankle doesn’t interfere with his fun and riding.

That keyboard does have quite an accent.


Hey, Nathan, bring me back a t-shirt. I’ll pay you back at Cal. Muni weekend. XL.

And have a great time.


Slight correxion

Thanks for the valiant effort to get news to us despite the exhaustion you must have felt and the difficulties using the Internet.

Just so everyone knows, it’s JOHN Stone who sustained a minor injury on the ride’s first day, not DAVID Stone – I’m certain of this.

Heal well, John! Good luck, Ken and all!

The daily updates are up, and the pictures are fantastic:Alps Updates

That looks like fun beyond description.
