Wildspitz (1580m) Mountain Bike Tour

A little creative navigating early on from Sattel (past a lama and nepalese yak farm) led to a pleasant asphalt road that brought us all the way to the summit. Brief stop at the hut for some Rosti and espresso, then down a super fun trail to the north side toward Baar. We did a second steep climb where bike carrying was necessary to ride the Hagegg ridge trail - fantastic!

Albishorn Mountainbike tour

Our first bonafide mountain bike tour! Riding straight from our doorstep up Uetliberg, then along Albiskette to Albishorn then down some really fun singletrack to Silhbrugg. Molly stomped the landings good. She only almost cried once. Incredible views of the mountains whenever the forest opened up... The way back along the Sihl was amazingly pleasant, we even stopped and dipped our feet in the river for a while.
