Today we offer our riders two possibilities:
1. Bike a longer day of 80 kilometers with approximately 500 meters of climbing.
2. Take your bicycle on the train to Winterthur and bike approximately half that distance.
Bikers doing the whole day will see how city meets country in the areas outside Zurich. You’ll be passing barns and cows and then turn a corner to see city agglomerations far off in the distance. The bike paths offer visitors a firsthand look at how Switzerland seamlessly combines the two ways of life in the densely populated Canton of Zurich.
Bikers deciding to take the train may choose to linger longer in Baden or spend more time visiting the town of Winterthur. Once we leave Winterthur, you'll find yourselves on forested bike paths where you’ll meet up with walkers, wildlife and the occassional mushroom hunter.
Whatever your route, we’ll all meet for lunch on the quite banks of a forested stream outside of Castle Kybourg. Afterwards, you may choose to hike up the hill to visit the castle, or continue on to discover the valley of Fischingen in the Canton of Thurgau and its 17th century Benedictine monastery.
Tonight you’ll sleep in the monastery and eat down the road at a local Russian restaurant that has somehow found its way into this hidden valley.
