Bill Dutcher, Americade Founder
Riding the Alps,



Share This Event

The best road riding in the world is the Alps, according to lots of world travelers like the guy who leads this RoadRUNNER tour, Uwe Krauss. My riding experience when I was 18 supported this notion when I rode a dead-slow BMW 250 through some of the Alps, so... I thought I'd see if a half century later it was still true. It is! And I took lots of videos and stills. You'll get to see the highlights from Germany, Switzerland, France, Italy and Austria, plus a little side-trip to Monaco to ride the F1 racing course through the unique seaside town.

When he was 18, Americade's founder, Bill Dutcher, rode an old BMW 250 through the Alps, "sleepin' cheap." Over 1/2 century later, he got to do it again, much better - this time with a local guide, great bike, food and lodging. Some difference !
