During my Europe trip we had a chance to do a North Switzerland Bike Ride, at the hilly but not big mountain region of Switzerland, somewhere south of Basel.
Start: Road #12 South
Out starting point of North Switzerland Bike Ride was at a local hotel. Our friend brought a big truck to bring our bikes!
Setting up bikes.
Good weather today, except the temperature is below 10 C…
Nearby swag bike.
The plan of our North Switzerland Bike Ride was to follow the main road south, then cut through the hills on a country road, then headed back north on another main road.
And the ride began!
Lots of green fields in Switzerland.
Soon we passed through the first town on the road: Hölstein.
Need a Swiss watch?
Stopping for a train.
Sankt Peter chapel.
Soon we entered the town at the bottom of our first climb: Oberdorf.
Bell tower with cliff background.
Through tightly packed houses.
So many woods!
Starting our ascend!
This quite summed up the Swiss landscape here: hills, green grass, and pointy roofed houses.
Barn and small creek!
There were many well marked local roads for bikes.
Cliffs could be found everywhere here!
1st Hill Top: Oberer Hauenstein
After some leg burning we reached the first hill top of our North Switzerland Bike Ride: Oberer Hauenstein
. There was a local sign here along with a water fountain to fill water.
The hill top mark.
Just like Italy, water fountain here was continuously flowing.
At here we decided to leave the main road and headed into country roads.
Let’s drag behind the farming truck!
Doing some detour…
Onto the country road!
Cutting through rocks for the road.
Great swiss grass field and hill view!
Starting from here, we began a fun descend into one of Swiss’ valley.
