This morning we’ll board the ferry with our bikes for a 1/2-hour ride across the lake to Gersau before continuing on Alpine Route #4.
We’ll be following a flat lakeside road with some traffic and tunnels to the town of Altdorf, the capital of Canton Uri.
For the Swiss, there is no legend more powerful than the story of William Tell and Altdorf is where the story takes place.
Stretch your legs to admire the bronze statue of William Tell in the city center, but then fill your bottles. It’s time to tackle the Klausen Pass.
You’ll be climbing for approximately 1600 meters in 20 kilometers. There are hairpin turns, 100 meter-high water falls and snowcapped mountains to admire.
The route also takes you right along the Urner Boden Alp, Switzerland’s largest and possibly most beautiful Alp with over 1200 head of grazing cows.
We’ll have lunch at the summit, admire the views, put on another layer and then enjoy 20 kilometers of coasting to reach the long open valley below.
We’ve now got a long, beautiful stretch of flat road all the way to Weesen.Our hotel is just outside of Weesen directly on the Walensee, a long, clear lake surrounded by the Churfirsten peaks.
