Tour de Suisse 2015

Yesterday my boyfriend and I attended the opening stage of Tour de Suisse – a road cycling race held annually in June in Switzerland. The first stage of this year’s  race was organised in Rotkreuz-Risch, tiny village in Central Switzerland.

Although I’m not fan of cycling competitions, I’m happy to experience this sports event. I was able to see some of the world’s best cyclists in person and admire their speed and strength. Also, I’ve enjoyed the sunny weather, lively atmosphere of the race, interesting events accompanying the race and a good company of friends.

Here are some impressions from yesterday:

    I’m sure I’ve been through a place called Rotkreuz in Switzerland – it was on a train going to Lucerne maybe the same place? The pictures are great and the weather looks lovely! 🙂

      Thank you Rosemary! 🙂 You’re right! Rotkreuz is one of the stations when traveling from Zürich to Luzern (or in the oposite direction). 🙂
