Lite Route Day 10: Fischingen -> Romanshorn

Our last day of riding begins with a stop in the town of Wil. This former provincial sits high on a hill and has managed to keep all of its charm despite its diminished importance. The numerous town squares and historic buildings will be difficult to leave, so we’ll have a coffee or two before moving on.

We’ll be coasting downhill today, through meadows and alpine pastureland through the Canton of Thurgau and onto the Canton of St. Gall. As you’ve clearly noticed by now, preservation is a priority for the Swiss: you will bike across a 500 year-old stone bridge and later stop at an 800-year old castle with moat and drawbridge.

At some point you’ll get your first view of the vast Lake Constance, the second largest lake in central Europe (after Lake Geneva). It’s all downhill now. Enjoy the finish.

Once at the lake, we’ll celebrate with drinks at the waterfront. Those of you who brought your bathing suits: now’s the time !
