Le Tour de Coeur: Swiss cardiologists once again on the road, and still on time . . .

ESC Congress News 2015 - London

Once again, a peleton of 25 hardy Swiss cardiologists has braved the elements and 8000 metres of elevation to cycle to an ESC Congress.

They all arrived punctually yesterday afternoon after completing a 700 kilometre tour from Basel, which had taken seven days to complete and climbed over the Ballon d’Alsace of the Vosges mountains.

‘It rained a lot,’ said Basel cardiologist Andreas Hoffman, ‘so we are glad to be here. But it has been fun, and we’re raising money for the Swiss Society of Cardiology.  It’s also good to practise what we preach. I’m a specialist in rehabilitation so I know the value of exercise.’
