No, I haven't been to the Alps, but know from friends who have that it is pretty amazing ..so I must get over there before too long. It is on my list of places still to go. I have ridden in mainland europe several times including trips to the south of France, Andorra and Spain. My last trip was when a group of us rode down to Barcelona to watch the MotoGP... few pics from the ride :-

French Motorway toll.. the motorways are boring - but it's a quick way to move if you have many miles to cover in a short time.


The mountain roads through Andorra are amazing





If I do get over to the Alps ..yes, I will get in touch and look you up if we are in the area. Thanks for the kind offer.
Heya!
I really hope that picture above is not from Andorra... terribly wrong side of the road.
Yep, you should definitely come to the Alps. You will not regret.
As I said - we are planning on riding Scotland & Wales this summer. We will try to get a cam like yours before, so we can take some cool pics (maybe you guys will be on some, I'd like that! )
Tanks again for sharing the pics and making the snow melt!
Cheers.
