"I'm eager to relive the momentous hours of the Battle of Murten when, in 1476, the Confederates inflicted a crushing defeat on the troops of Charles the Bold of Burgundy, so I don my plastic helmet, summon up my courage and mount my two-wheeled stallion to fly to the rescue of the peaceful and hospitable citizens of the fortified town of Murten. Good news: there's no longer any need to use ferries to cross the choppy waters of the canals of La Thielle and La Broye. As I return, my valiant heart still urges me to haul myself up to the summit of Mont-Vully to enjoy an extraordinary view of what was once a bloody batttlefield - today, it merely invites visitors to contemplate and rest awhile."
