Great photo! In case anyone is wondering, it was taken in the Lavaux vineyards on Lake Geneva, between Lausanne and Montreux in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. I’m incredibly lucky to be able to do my lunch rides through this idyllic region and then on the weekends head farther afield into the big Alps :) Not enough foreigners know about the amazing cycling in the area, so thanks for posting this shot.

Actually It’s my commute. Well I usually take the shortest route around the lake but don’t mind climbing a bit in the vineyard when the weather is good.
