Warm and sunny weather. However, at high altitudes the temperature dropped somewhat, especially after sunset, and the night was cold, 4 to 5°C.
The first part of the route through the Schoellenen gorge runs on a bike lane along the road, while the last two thirds of it runs on a splendid, separate tarmac bike track, where it's only allowed to go uphill.
Before the cycling prologue we have managed the following stretches by car, train and bike: From Odense to Weil on the Rhine by car (the previous day), from Weil on the Rhine to Basel central station by bike (6 km) and from Basel to Goeschenen by train with an interchange at Erstfeld.
