4feb12 the twike-club had one of its three annual meetings in churwalden, switzerland.
traditionally, at this churwalden meeting we gather to have some fun during the day, build up some hunger and then converge onto a converted stable in a 400 yr old building where we eat a fondue, a typical swiss dish in a very rustical and authentic environment.
this year, jc and myself chose to drive there with TW231 despite the very low temperatures of -15°C during the day. jc is very proud to have upgraded his TWIKE to the same technical level as TW560 except for the GSM connectivity pack. (still: at current temperatures quick charging is out of the question…and the batteries give us about 30% less energy)
the drive to churwalden was cold, but fun > remember, i’ve not been driving any TWIKE since december19!
about 15 people were there to see the WAVE presentation i prepared and everyone liked the stories and pictures we had in store.
in churwalden, being at about 1800mtrs above sea level, that evening by the time we left the restaurant, the temperature had dropped to -24°C with slight snowfall. i was really glad to return home by train, since i had a commitment feb5 early morning > everybody liked my india-inspired elephant hat!
i will be holding further presentations on the WAVE during 2012, next one planned is apr12. if anyone wants to organize an additional presentation – please get in touch with me.
