Warm and sunny weather all day. Even at an altitude og 2,500 m the air is warm.
The route from the Oberalp pass to Disentis runs on main road 19, steeply descending in the traffic. At Disentis the separate bike route through the valley of the Rhine Anterior begins, but technical problems and a blocked road make us take the train from Disentis to Sumvitg Cumpadials.
Not a day without any problems. First we take the train from Andermatt to the Oberalp pass in order to skip the 600 altidude meters on the 11 km stretch. Then we venture on a long mountain walk to the Toma lake, which is said to be the Rhine's source. Alexander and Simon even hike on via the mountain top of Pazolastock. I fall twice down a mountain slope on my way back. Simon gets problems with his brakes on the descent from the Oberalp pass. Plus his left rear pannier ends up in his rear wheel. The first part of the bike route through the valley is blocked, so Alexander and I follow him on a train ride the last bit of todays stage.
