Trail after heavy rain

Cycling around Turbenthal – Switzerland

We kicked off the cycling trip in Turbenthal and then did a 40 km circle trip on a sunny Sunday in July 2020. As you know from my other trips to the “Zürcher Oberland”, I’m a big fan of this area.

Luckily, Switzerland has a nice bike trail network which can be easily accessed for planning purposes via a web interface: https://www.schweizmobil.ch/en/veloland/veloland.html

We were taking trail number: 5, 41 and 53. Although some of these trails need to be shared with cars, normally you can count on having either quite silent roads or specific bike tracks that you only share potentially with hikers. So the infrastructure is quite nice compared with other countries and until today, we only had good experiences made on these cycling tracks. Of course, no GPS is needed – these trails are well marked.
