Leukerbad area

During our holiday we have been to Switzerland.  We stayed on the Leukerbad campsite. We had some great bike rides and with the “gäste karte” you get a discount on the cablecars as well. This we could go up with the cablecar and cycle downwards. The Leukerbad website does have several routes available. We did take route 6 and the Flowtrail. We also did walk to the Lämmerenhütte, a special article will follow. Video’s on the biketrail you can see below….

stop training wheels

First we did use it as a trike later on we changed it to a balance bike.  It was…

  If you got something new it is fun to write about it or make a video. It is even more fun if the video 1,5 year later is shown on the Idworx Facebook page.
