I mentioned a few weeks ago that I might have to get out my bike if I was going to get any exercise and, today, I did just that. My road bike may need a little tlc before it’s roadworthy, so I opted for my mountain bike, even though I would be cycling on flat, smooth tarmac (at least for most of the way) alongside the river Rhone.
When I was planning the route, I noticed that there was a small lake, a monastery and a ruined chateau near Sierre, so that became my target – about 16 km (10 miles) away from where I started, after unloading my bike from the car in Sion. Along the way I took a few short detours to capture some of the other small lakes nearby, as well as a few pictures of the Sierre golf course. I hope you enjoy the ride… 🙂
