Greetings to the South from the North!
« on: February 03, 2006, 08:03:58 pm »
Howzit boys!
 
Couldn't let Maverick be the only SA bugger on the other side of the equator! Me, I live in France, within view of the Mont Blanc (highest peak in Europe), and half an hour away from Geneva, Switzerland.

Dream rides that start within half an hour from my pozzie:
The "Route Napoleon": http://www.route-napoleon.com/gb/map/index.html
The "Route des Gande Alpes": http://www.routedesgrandesalpes.com/pages/route/index.php
 
I do my lurking and a wee bit of chatting on ADVrider and UKGSer.  

Laters,
Kev.

Nee man. Champagne is over-rated. 5th Ave Cold Duck is way better! As for the French babes... I married one!!  :D

You escaped from ZRH? Homesick? I slaved for Credit-Suisse there once a week. I could be found in Uetlihof for meetings and stuff... but actually lived / worked in Bern.
 
May go to Chamonix for a fondu next weekend. Skiing is for crazy people!  :wink:

Hey Kev, I remember Bern my buddies pissed of that big bridge going into town when we visited it 3 years ago (I will scan the pic in :lol: ) They got a bit of stage fright when the tram came past though. Awesome scenery and lovely roads for biking in Switzerland and really hope to travel through there at some point.

Skiing just looks very wrong, now snowboard there's something to enjoy 8)
