Lite Route Day 7: Solothurn-> Zofingen

We continue following the slow waters of the Aare today. Our paths will take us past covered wooden bridges, through dark forests and alongside a Swiss military training camp ! No large cities on today’s ride. We bike from the Canton of Solothurn and into the Canton of Berne through sleepy pastureland and quite villages.

It’s in these hidden swathes of Switzerland that you’ll notice the small differences that set the Swiss country folk apart. You’ll see houses ablaze in potted flowers, mothers strolling with their babies miles from anywhere, old women cutting neat bales of grass with sickle and twine. The Swiss values of family, hard work and beauty through precision are found at every turn in the Aare.

After miles of happy meanderings, we’ll find ourselves in the Canton of Aargau and face to face with the Aarburg church and its fortress high above. Feel free to climb the long flights of stairs for a magnificent view before heading south to Zofingen.

You may think Zofingen a quaint town, but be warned: with the population of 10,000, it’s officially a city and they’re mighty proud of that fact. In any event, its probably unlike any city you’ve encountered: the streets are spotless, crime is unheard of and there are no cars allowed in the city center. Enjoy.
