    Hi Steve, I have just got back from a 11,000km ride to the Nordkapp.

    In the end I bought a Klim Hardanger Suit which performed flawlessly except once when I had an hour+ of torrential thunderstorm rain and the suit leaked a little at the crutch. I will taking this up with Klim. Otherwise the suit is one of the best things I've bought. It is exceptionally easy to take on and off, a 20 second job, and offers 14 air vents to get the cooling/warmth just right.

    For me the Dolomites and Gross Glockner are highlights as well as the area around Berchtesgaden. Essentially I set a destination then tell Garmin to avoid major roads....this seems to work perfectly and finds some interesting spots. Cortina D'Ampezzo is not a bad place to stay whilst in the Dolomites as all routes seem to converge here. Beware its very popular in all seasons.

    Have a great trip and if I can help further do not hesitate to drop me a line.

    Best regards,

    Tony

    AFH, So which jacket did you end up getting? I've been riding the Rukka AirMan and the Klim Apex Air.

    Anyway, My wife and I are coming to your part of the world at the end of Sept. We'll spend most of September in Italy but we end up in Como. From there we still have 5 days yet to ride before we have to catch a flight out of Munchen on 6/Oct. We thought we'd ride north to see Zurich but after that we are open to suggestions.

    I was hoping you might have some recommendations for some good rides in Switzerland and/or Austria and maybe with a nice town to stay at the end the day.

    Any ideas would be appreciated!

    Steve

    PS I've already done Stelfers, Timmels and Grossglockner on previous trips.
