On Instagram, she shared snaps of herself cycling in the breathtaking Alps, which she called a dream come true.

“Cycling in the Alps?! Switzerland has world-class trails alright, but that doesn’t mean it’s just good roads, it also means elevation and difficulty,” she said.

The 33-year-old mentioned that she and her companions took a train to Eiger North Face, a nearly 1,800-meter-high north face of rock and ice, and went down the mountain from there.

She even talked about seeing an honesty store, “We saw an HONESTY STORE along the way, filled with cheese, sausage & butter! May QR code at pwede ka dun magbayad!”

But it’s not all fun and games for the sports host, as she revealed in a separate post that she suffered minor injuries while biking.

“Sumemplang nang malala sa Switzerland. Crash Landing on You?!!” she humorously wrote.

It was seen in the photos that she got minor wounds on her left hand, left shoulder, and right knee.

“Steep, sharp descent from the mountains filled with 180 switchback turns. It was a really bad fall. Don’t worry I’m fine. Malayo naman ito sa bituka,” she reassured.

As a cycling enthusiast, she concluded the series of her posts by appreciating the beauty of Switzerland and treasuring her experiences, “Bruised and all, it’s been totally worth it.”

Gretchen played volleyball for the Ateneo Lady Eagles at a collegiate level and the Petron Blaze Spikers at a professional level. She currently hosts TV5’s news programs Frontline Pilipinas and Frontline Sa Umaga and One News’ primetime newscast The Big Story.
