We instantly fell in love with the Scarpe Mojito trail GTX shoes. They are available for both men and women, and we put them to the test on a particularly difficult and muddy steep trail. The Scarpe Mojitos trail boots (or shoes) support the foot very well indeed and they...Read more

I have detailed some suggestions in this article but of course everyone is different, has different motivations and differing levels of experience.

Klausen Pass, 1952m

I had not counted on the cows. Many of them and beautifully coiffed with their heads adorned with flowers and emblems of the Canton of Uri and the Swiss Flag. Today was the Alpabzug or Descente des Alpages, essentially the day when the cattle descend from the high pastures to...Read more

Cycling up Zugerberg mountain

I must have climbed the Zugerberg a hundred times or more but never written about it. At every time of year it shows a different side to it. I particularly like this ride because it can be done within an hour yet is a tremendous cardio work out. Depending precisely...Read more
