Knielingen to Hemsbach (78)
Its time for rape seed! Again :D

When we woke up this morning in our apartment in Knielingen we knew that this might be the last stage of our wonderful tour through Europe. But as usual we started with breakfast and when we looked outside the window of our apartment the world waiting for us was gray in gray. The sky was covered by thick clouds and…

Have a snack stop with a beautiful river view.

After three long stages in a row, we decided that we needed one final rest day in Schwanau/Allmannsweier. We were pretty exhausted when we woke up and started slowly with breakfast. After making laundry we did some stuff at our notebooks. In the afternoon we took a little walk to the nearby lake. It was a very small lake but…

Basel to Schwanau (76)
Small cute lake next to our apartment.

It was a cloudy morning when we woke up in our hotel room in Basel. So after breakfast we brought our bags down via the elevator and prepared the bicycles in the underground car park. When we started the stage it was a bit cold and the top of the few skyscrapers in Basel were covered in clouds. In Basel…

Reward view - cows in front of the wide area.

After just one night in our very big apartment we had to say goodbye to the beautiful city of Luzern. So like usually we had breakfast in the apartment, brought our bags downstaris, and got the bicycles ready. The weather was not that nice and it was very cloudy but at least it didn’t rain. When we left the city…

Göschenen to Luzern (74)
Crazy colour of the Göscheneralpsee.

After we climbed the highest point of our tour, we thought it was time for relaxing and of course to enjoy the Alps. Therefore, we stayed four nights in a very cute and comfortable apartment in Göschenen. Unfortunately the weather forecast was not so good. Just on our first day it shouldn’t rain that much, so we decided to go…

Airolo to Göschenen (73)

On our rest day in Airolo it was again time for cleaning and checking the bicycles, because on the next day the Gotthardpass was waiting. So after breakfast we both cleaned our chains and cassette. Some gears of Alexs bicycle didn’t work smoothly but we hoped that they would last the rest of the tour. In the afternoon the weather…

Bellinzona to Airolo (72)
The mighty Gotthardpass is in sight.

In Bellinzona we stayed for one day. We were still tired from the previous stages and we knew that the next two stages would be pretty hard. Thus, we just relaxed in our fancy tent for most of the day. In addition, Alina had some pain in her left foot so we also had to take care for it. Bellinzona…

Como to Bellinzona (71)
Flowers in front of the mountain range.

On our rest day in Como the first action point was getting a Covid test around the corner in the pharmacy. This was quite easy. Afterwards we discovered the city starting with a walk to the Porta Torre which also is the entrance into the old town. There we walked through narrow streets till we came to the “Basilica di…

Rainy days are coming back!

Due to the long stage on the day before we chose to start a bit later. The Motel we stayed at provided an Italian style breakfast which consisted of a coffee and a croissant. Como was not that far so we thought that this would be enough. After breakfast we got the bicycles ready and during this we heard some…

Noceto to Agrate Brianza (69)

After three stages in a row it was time for a rest day after arriving now in the Po valley. Because the last stage was really tough we slept very long and started with a late breakfast in our room. After making some laundry we took a walk to a nature reserve next to the river Taro. It should be…
