SunTrip tour 2018

In 2018 the SunTrip race is going from Lyon to Canton in China (12000km!).

For all those (like me…) who didn’t enroll in this ‘extreme race’, the organisation has offered the opportunity to ride together and support all the racers from Lyon to Chamonix.

After Chamonix the real race starts and everybody was free to choose his own itinerary.

I have decided therefore to join the SunTrip tour and then continue on my own.

My trip is then made by 3 consecutives legs:

1)- From Lyon to Chamonix, 4 days, 292 km, altitude gain 3930m
(with all my SunTrip friends)

2)- Suisse: from Chamonix to Zurich, 6 days, 594km, altitude gain 6116m
(with my sons Giacomo and Carolina) 

3)- return back: 3 days, 561km, altitude gain 3968m, from Zurich back home in Versailles (on my own)

The weather has been perfect, always sunny, nice and warm: only one day we had really strong wind against us (following the Rhein down to Arbon) 

Here below are the detailed routes from all 3 legs.
