This weekend was start of the Tour de Suisse.  The Prologue on the Saturday with the road race on Sunday.  Rotkreuz was hosting the event and so on Saturday off we hopped on the super efficient Swiss bus 20 minutes down the road to catch some of the two wheel roadrunners in action.  The day is summed up best with bags full of freebies and a handful of photos:


Then on the Sunday we wandered over to Cham to see the peloton fly past on their 161km journey round Lakes Zug and Aegeri.  When you go to watch a cycling race expect to do a lot of standing around, waiting.


Then, when the last of the 150 bikes has whizzed past and the breeze from the furious peddling has wafted by, don’t be surprised if your 5 year old incredulously asks: “Was that it?”.
