I biked to work!

Finally!

Having bought the bike I finally braved the mean streets of Zurich and biked the whole whopping 6km to my lab. At a speed even slightly faster than German Boy can run 6km, but I admit my slowness is more from AH THATS A TRUCK than fitness related. Zurich is actually pretty bike friendly, lots of bike lanes, signs redirecting bikes to extremely bike friendly less frequented roads which parallel the main roads. There are however an awful lot of hills, buses, trams and tram tracks, and giant intersections. I had to go through a round about which has 6 feeder streets, four tram lines, four bus lines and decided to boldly cut through the middle like a lame person where I almost hit another bike, over corrected, and almost fell over laughing.

 

Anyway, fitness here i come.

About adventuresunplugged

The world is a really cool place. I moved to Zurich almost three years ago to start my PhD, and have really enjoyed the different opportunites living close to the Swiss alps offered. This blog is about some of my adventures, climbing, mountaineering, rock climbing, traveling... life in general! Wow, haven't updated this bad boy in some time! While the above is still true I have gone on to finish the PhD, so that is Dr Unplugged to you. I also have landed a job in Switzerland and will be shortly moving to Geneva. Clearly I have some adventures ahead left to explore with you guys along for company!
