- (short) primarily temporal sense; indicating or being or seeming to be limited in duration; "a short life"; "a short flight"; "a short holiday"; "a short story"; "only a few short months"

Road To Susten Pass
On Wednesday, June 30, day 14 of our bicycle tour of the Alps, we rode the train from St. Moritz to Sargans then biked to Linthal. 41.6 miles, 1290 feet of climbing, 730 feet of descent. We chose to get the train to Sargans mainly to save time and avoid riding roads we had already traveled on. We had sort of painted ourselves into a corner by riding to St. Moritz. Any road we chose would have taken us someplace we had already been. The train ride was actually quite interesting, as the track spiraled and twisted its way from La Punt all the way to Thusis, crossing numerous bridges and passing through countless tunnels. It was also nice to see the previous day's ride from another vantage point. After arriving in Sargens, we made our way to Linthal. This section of road was one of the least pretty of our ride. It was mostly flat, and although we got to ride for several miles along the south shore of a lake (Walensee), the air was somewhat smoggy, distracting from the view. On Thursday, July 1, day 15, we rode from Linthal to Fluelen via Klausen Pass, then caught a train to Goschenen. 34.5 miles, 4525 feet of climbing, and 5120 feet of descent. The climb up Klausen started immediately after leaving Linthal and was hardly memorable. That said, the descent was long and enjoyable despite the two retrogrades. After stopping in Altdorf for lunch, we decided to be lazy, bypassing another 1500 feet of climbing by riding to Fluelen then riding a train to Goschenen, where we spent the night. On Friday, July 2, day 16, we rode from Goschenen back to Meiringen via Susten Pass and Innertkirchen. 35.6 miles, 4700 feet of climbing, and 6150 feet of descent. The day started with a short descent to Wassen before heading west to climb over Susten Pass. A little less than halfway up, we stopped in a driveway to rest and take in the view. It was pretty enough that I got out the camera and made this panorama. Originally 5 images, cropped to around 3. Stitched using Hugin. Shortly after continuing upward, we were passed by a few cyclists, then a few more, then some motorcyclists wearing fluorescent vests with STAFF printed on them. It didn't totally click what was going on until we were passed by three more cyclists and a car with flashing lights and blasting music. Apparently all these cyclists were on a decked-out supported tour! After chatting with one of the riders, we learned that their support consisted of four motorcycles and two cars, plus they had shuttle service for their luggage. They had a tent set up at the top of the pass and everything. It actually looked kind of fun, though looking up prices online after we got home we realized it was a LOT more expensive than riding self-supported. The descent down Susten was long but quite fun. We eventually reached the bottom, passed through Innertkirchen, then started our way back over the short climb to Meiringen. A minute later, a few cyclists from the supported tour caught back up to us -- we had started the descent long before them. At first, Cynthia and I were like "whatever" and let them pass. But once the third or fourth person passed us I couldn't resist and stood up for the rest of the climb, panniers and all. I think Cynthia sped up also. We both knew where the top of the climb was because we had ridden this section earlier in our tour. I can only imagine what they were thinking as two fully-loaded cyclists pushed their pace through that section. At the top of the climb, we pulled off at Lammi to eat sausages with onion sauce for lunch. Super yummy restaurant, highly recommended. After lunch we rolled down to Meiringen and found lodging for two nights. On Monday we had reservations to stay at Rosenlaui, and we planned to meet back up with Piaw, Lisa, and Phil then.
