|I arrived in switzerland on April 2nd and I spent 3 weeks getting material and visiting the area. I went around the lake and biked around to train and see what things I was missing. Its funny because even though I was training I still managed to gain a few kilos( must be the wine, beer, and fondue). The weather was a bit cold with some rain, hail, and snow. My dad lives higher up at around 1000 meters in altitude so I definetely felt the cold and was a challenge to bike up to . I also took this time to visit friends and see my dad, brother and sisters.
