Ruth: Today was all about closing the gap and returning to Lausanne where we stopped last year. It was a
strange feeling arriving at the lake and heading away from Rome, but we are making sure that we
complete every kilometre between Canterbury and Rome. Our ride started high up in the mountains,
passed through the hilltop town of Gruyere (famous for cheese), contoured up and down for a while,
We contoured up above the lake on the #1 national cycle path. It is both spectacular and
gruelling, as it goes up and down through terraced vineyards high above the lake shore.
