Inspired by Wolfgang Fasching a three-time winner of the Race Across America (RAAM) who completed the Seven Summits of the Alps in 2012 in less than 10 days I decided to follow in his footsteps; however without having a supporting team to help me. Equipped with an old mountain bike, camping and climbing gear I cycled from Slovenia to France and climbed the highest mountain in each of the seven countries situated in the Alps - at the age of 56.
Slovenia Triglav (2,864 m) Austria Grossglockner (3,798 m) Germany Zugspitze (2,962 m) Liechtenstein Grauspitz (2,599 m) Switzerland Dufour (4,634 m) France Mont Blanc (4,810 m) Italy Gran Paradiso (4,061 m)
