Mini cycling holiday

Mini cycling holiday

It is about a month ago since we had our last small cycling holiday.
On 14-15 october 2017 we had a very warm weekend in the Netherlands.

So we planned our small cycling trip. My son (9 years) would like to stay on a campsite with swimming pool.
After some searches we found “Ardoer Camping Ackersate” to stay.

We planned our trip and try to get some quite roads and even some unpaved ones as well.
Due to the weather we had a great weekend and some nice cycling routes.
After a night sleep in the tent we did drove back to home.

The trip can be viewed below on the map.

Leukerbad area

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.
