In June 2023 I undertook a great bikepacking project. With small and lightweight material strapped to my road bike I wanted to cross the entire alpine arc. A bikepacking trip with highs and lows from Nice to my home in the northern part of Switzerland. In this Blogpost I bring you along and tell you the story of my almost 4-week long bikepacking journey across the Alps. I sweated, froze, cursed, threw up, sang, cheered, and experienced a lot.
