Swiss farmland very near the Swiss / German border on the north side of the Rhine. Just a few hundred meters ahead, the Rhine river returns to view and forms the border between Germany and Switzerland. Though rare, certain sections of the bike route do require riding on gravel roads, but this is largely uncommon and wasn’t at all unpleasant. The scenery is so spectacular, you won’t be focusing on what’s under your tires. A few kilometres outside Hemishofen, Switzerland – May 9, 2014.
