For the next three day we excaped again from the damning heat. While the temperatures in Olten raises easily above 30°C, in the mountains it has only 20°C. So we travelled to Arosa. During the summer time a heaven for bikers.
Overnight we steaed in the cheepest hotel as a 1 hour internet search reveals. 50.00 CHF a double room including breakfast. The name of the hotel: „Basic Hotel“. 🙂 plus 10.00 CHF visitor’s tax per person. But for that you get an electronic keycard using 2 cable cars and train between Arosa and Langwies for free.
All Bike routes were intensively investigated and downloaded from www, quickly reworked , via GoogleEarth visualised and finally converted to dgb-Mapsource format ready to send to the GPS. Thanks to OpenStreetMap for providing free digital maps. (Regularly map updates of different regions can be downloaded from here.)
