We decided today to get some fresh air and explore the beautiful forest area near the hotel.
We started the day again with a lovely breakfast and then arranged to hire some bikes. We were a bit miffed to find that all of the mountain bikes had already been hired so we had to take the electrically assisted push bikes instead. What a blessing that turned out be! We quickly decided tha the electric bikes were a god-send and that we wouldn't have lasted 15 minutes on the hills of Zurich on normal push bikes!
We started with a ride through the forest roads, which was very nice. From there we planned to head to the Zurich zoo, where the new star attraction is the baby elephant. But we talk a wrong turn and ended up in a beautiful area with great bike trails, so we explored that for a while.
We finally got to the zoo mid-afternoon. We spent quite a few hours walking around the zoo before getting back on the bikes and heading back to the hotel, just as the sun was setting.
Again we opted for room service for dinner and then fell into bed after a very tiring day.
