The right to freedom of movement, the right to health, the right to cycle are all worth promoting.
Beginning of August my wife and I cycled from our chalet in the mountains of Oberwallis downhill to Geneva, 240 kilometers — which we comfortably negotiated at 80 kilometers per day. Undoubtedly cycling is one of the healthiest of sports — especially when combined with a visit to the thermal baths at Saillon and refreshing jumps in the lakes near Sierre, Sion, Le Bouveret, Evian and Amphion les Bains. We had glorious weather. A visit to the Abbey of St. Maurice was particularly uplifting — considering it has been there since the year 514 and that religious services have been held there every day for 1500 years. Carpe diem. Carpe noctem.
