I was expecting today to be tough, but the morning was fantastic. The road towards the Grand St Bernard pass is very flat up the valley for 80+km, so I made excellent progress. In Montreaux I met Klaus Rosga, who was cycle touring with a trailer, and had been over the Gd St Bernard with it. Glad to see it is possible. Tonight was the first time I free camped – I just couldn’t get any further, and saw a nice secluded spot.
