Challenge Route Day 8: Rapperswil -> Feldkirch

We’ll be following nicely groomed, car-free bike paths along Lake Zurich for the first 20 kilometers. You’ll see the alps of Glarus to your south and the Appenzell highlands to the north, but all of your riding today is flat.

After the lake, it’s another twenty kilometers before reaching the long Walensee lake and its 1500 meter cliffs. The ride soon becomes surreal as we head into a long series of bike tunnels where giant windows give us stunning views of the lake and its high calcium cliffs. Take a swim in Switzerland ’s cleanest lake and then dry off for a picnic.

We eventually meet up with the Rhine and follow it northward. We’ll cross over into Liechtenstein and finally into Austria where we’ll spend the night in the medieval city of Feldkirch.

Spend the evening exploring the city’s narow shopping streets before tucking into a hearty Austrian meal at a refurbished hunting lodge that sits above the city.
