Bike Tour 2018

On Friday, May 11th, 2018, the group went on a day-long bicycle tour of nearby Alsace, France. Starting from Colmar, we cycled through Ingersheim, Turckheim, Husseren-les-Châteaux, and stopped for a delicious lunch in at the Taverne Médiévale in Gueberschwihr. After lunch, we rode to Eguisheim, stopping for a drink and musical interlude before ending the tour back in Colmar. Over the course of what was a beautiful spring day, we discovered that whiskey is great for alleviating allergies, that Giulio cannot miss a rendezvous with an “important package”, and that snails taste really good. Thanks to Nicola Rossi for organizing the tour, to Marcus Wyss for finding and reserving the restaurant, and to all for the good times!
