Enjoy the lovely, peaceful landscapes of the Baselbieter Jura, followed by a thrilling ride down to Aarau. Off the beaten track, cycle through flat Suhrental, joining the stream of tourists in Luzern. A brief hop over the Teufelsbrücke bridge towards the Gotthard, and the south of Switzerland beckons you with a racy downhill ride. Here you will observe a change in your surroundings, granite rocks becoming chestnut trees and vineyards. In Bellinzona «La Turita», don't miss a glimpse of the vegetable garden of Magadino. Visit the Lago di Lugano with the photogenic village of Morcote, and at the end, the beautiful Mendrisiotto Region.
