Tour de Suisse

This is not the Tour de France but the Tour de Suisse, and it is you, and not Jan Ulrich, who is asked to undergo a trip of epic proportions! After careful preparations -and sufficient horse-power! - you set out along the Große Walsertal, past the Schwarzer See towards Rankweil-Feldkirch.

9 passes - sing alleluia!
