Don't let the weather stop you! Win with Five Ten! – Switzerland

Mountain Biking Collection by adidas Five Ten

Autumn is approaching and with it comes fog, drizzle, slush and chilly temperatures. Reasons to wrap up and draw the curtains? Absolutely not! Because you're not made of sugar and a bike ride is certainly not only worthwhile when the sun is shining. That's exactly what we want to prove to you with this Collection.

If the weather doesn't promise anything special today or in the coming week, you'll find plenty of inspiration in this Collection on how you can still make perfect use of your time to experience a few adventures in Switzerland. How about a trip to the giant sequoias? In Trogen, you can try to wrap your arms around their massive trunks. At the Rhine Falls, on the other hand, you can feel the full force of the water. The powerful flow rushes down the river and you won't be able to distinguish between spray and rain.

We've also picked out a few perfect photo spots where you don't have to search long for the best shot on cooler days. Lake Stelli is so wonderfully situated that Switzerland's iconic landmark, the glorious Matterhorn, is perfectly reflected in it. Or, pay a visit to the beautiful city of Lucerne and capture the quaint Chapel Bridge on your camera. By turning your focus onto sheer enjoyment, there's no reason cold, wet autumn days can't be a pleasure.

For a change of pace, visit Zurich Zoo, which is known for its initiatives in nature and animal conservation. Haven't had enough yet? Then pay a visit to the Aletsch Glacier. It’s the largest glacier in the Alps by surface area and an absolute feast for the eyes when viewed from above. Look forward to your very own outdoor adventure in spite of – or even because of – the bad weather!

And no matter what conditions await you, no matter what terrain, with the adidas Five Ten Trailcross mountain biking shoe, you can explore even the most remote forests all year round. Its waterproof, breathable GORE-TEX membrane keeps your feet pleasantly dry even in rain and snow. The non-slip rubber outsole guarantees optimum grip on the pedals and its flexible neoprene upper keeps mud and small stones out. So nothing, not even the worst weather, will stop you from your bike ride.

To motivate you even more, we're organising a competition for you:

- Grab a Highlight from the Collection or find another great destination and plan your own Tour in wet weather.
- Take a few photos during the Tour to capture the atmosphere and include the hashtag #brandofthebrave in the Tour title.
- Follow adidas Five Ten on komoot and tag us as a participant of the Tour.

We will raffle off two Five Ten Trailcross packages among all participants. Each package includes the Five Ten Trailcross GORE-TEX mountain bike shoe and a Five Ten TrailX long-sleeve. If, for any reason, these products are not available, the winners will instead receive a 250 euro voucher for the online shop at adidas.de.

    Lauterbrunnen

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    The small town of Lauterbrunnen lies in the idyllic valley of the same name. Here from the bridge over the Weisse Lütschine you have a fantastic view towards the landmark of Lauterbrunnen, on the Staubbach waterfall. It is the highest free-falling waterfall in Switzerland and is impressive from a distance. A short detour directly to the waterfall is worthwhile, because in summer you can view it from behind through a gallery and that for free.

    Lauterbrunnen itself is definitely worth a break. Whether for a short break or a little longer is up to you. There are great bike trails around the town, such as the demanding Grütsch Trail, which can be reached via the Mürrenbahn and leads directly back to town. If you want to rent a bike or have a technical problem with your bike, various bike shops nearby can help you. Bosch e-bike charging stations have been set up for e-bikers throughout the region, there are two of them directly in Lauterbrunnen. You can find the exact locations here: lauterbrunnen.swiss/de/sommer/sehen-und-erleben/aktivitaeten/mountainbike/bosch-e-bike-ladestationen.

    Riesenmammutbäume in Trogen

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    There are five huge, ancient sequoias here. The largest is over 40 meters high.

    The trees actually come from the Sierra Nevada in California, but seeds and plants were brought to Scotland by a shipload in 1853 and were given by Queen Victoria of England to the Prince of Hohenzollern, who resided in Trogen. Since sequoias became a status symbol of wealth in the late 19th century, many of them can be found next to parks, hospitals and villas.

    Berggasthaus Aescher

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    The Berggasthaus Aescher is easily accessible for young and old with the Ebenalp cable car and a short 15-minute walk through the Wildkirchli cave. In this hut, which is beautifully located at 1454 meters, you can eat very tasty and enjoy a wonderful view. The hut is particularly beautiful because it hugs the rock in a charming way. A great feast for the eyes!

    Aletschgletscher, Viewpoint Hohfluh

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    Stand in front of the largest and longest glacier in the Alps in terms of area? Then you are in the right place at the Aletsch Glacier. It is located on the southern roof of the Bernese Alps in the Swiss canton of Valais. The glacier is a whopping 22.6 kilometers long and has an area of 78.49 square kilometers. At the thickest point on Konkordiaplatz, the ice measures 800 meters. Inconceivably! The glacier is truly a sight of archaic beauty. High up, at the view points Hohfluh, Moosfluh, Bettmerhorn and Eggishorn, you will be particularly aware of the size and uniqueness of the glacier.

    Schloss Sargans

    Hiking Highlight

    The medieval castle towers high above Sargans and offers a wonderful view of the valley. The complex was first mentioned in a document in 1282, followed by a large number of renovations and additions. The tower is home to the Sarganserland Museum and its outer walls measure two and a half meters on the ground floor. There is also a restaurant in the castle, which is open from March to December.

    Bernina Express Line

    Mountain Biking Highlight (Segment)

    Nice section on the "Bernina Express" trail, which takes its name from the more or less parallel, legendary railway line of the Rhaetian Railway. The approximately 37-kilometer trail is a real classic and leads from Samedan to Poschiavo.

    Stellisee

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    The Stellisee at 2537 meters is a wonderful mountain lake in the Welsh mountains with a fantastic background, the Matterhorn. When there is no wind, you can not only photograph the original, but also its reflection. One of the most beautiful places to catch a glimpse of the symbol of Switzerland. You can walk to the lake in around 20 minutes from the Blauherd mountain station. It is particularly romantic here at sunrise and sunset. Cotton grass grows on the lakeshore, littering the green-brown meadows with white spots.

    Urwaldweg Bödmerwald

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    The Bödmerwald in the canton of Schwyz is one of the last primeval forests in Switzerland: deep in the Muota valley, on a karstified plateau interspersed with deep crevasses and carts below the Pragel Pass, ancient spruces, bush-shaped moor birches, gnarled mountain pines next to lonely silver firs and beeches claw their way into the stony ones Underground. Here you will find over 300 types of plants and more than 250 types of moss. On your way from Mittenwald to Bödmeren you hike through different types of forest and past small biotopes, which are also called Flösch. These are accumulations of precipitation that cannot seep into the ground due to the thick layers of clay. The natural watering points enable livestock farming.

    Kleine Scheidegg

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    An absolutely kitschy and beautiful place above Grindelwald. Two cog railways meet at the train station, taking nature lovers up to the Jungfraujoch, the Eiger Trail or the Lauberhorn. However, many hikers also take the train up here and then hike on from here. The view is just wonderful, but it is also very touristy. You can see groups of tourists here, who alternately come up from the valley by train every 30 minutes, take a photo with a Bernese Mountain Dog (with typical kegs on the collar) and then continue up to the Sphinx. A fun sight, but still a wonderful starting point for hikes.

    Lauenensee

    Hiking Highlight

    In 1982, the Swiss dialect rock band sang "I gloub, i gangä no meh a Louenesee" and thus set a musical monument to the picturesque Lauenensee - there is hardly a Swiss who can not sing the song.

    The Lauenensee lies in the midst of a wide Moorwiesen nature reserve and invites with various bathing and fire places, a restaurant and a rowboat rental to a longer stay.

    You can find more information about Lake Lauenen at gstaad.ch/sommer/wandern/bergseen.html.

    Zoo Zürich

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    The Zurich Zoo was opened in 1929 and is located above the city on the Zürichberg in the Fluntern district. It encourages visitors to understand natural phenomena and nature conservation by actively including them in the animal world. The general public and the economy are addressed through offensive, transparent communication that arouses curiosity and sensitizes them to the concerns of plants and animals. In Switzerland and abroad, Zurich Zoo supports and oversees various programs for species conservation and habitat protection:

    Rheinfall

    Bike Touring Highlight

    The Rhine Falls are an impressive natural spectacle, especially after the snow has melted. The largest waterfall in Europe is 150 meters wide and 23 meters high. In summer, up to 600,000 liters per second flow down the Rhine Falls. The age is estimated to be around 15,000 years.

    Access to the north bank is free. On the southern bank, entry costs 5 francs (including entry to Laufen Castle at the Rhine Falls and access to the viewing platforms).

    Luzern

    Bike Touring Highlight

    Lucerne is a real gem in the city. Embedded in an impressive mountain panorama, it is the cultural center of Central Switzerland and lies on Lake Lucerne. The city is the destination of many tourists from all over the world thanks to its sights, the attractive shopping opportunities, the unique location on the lake and the nearby Rigi, Pilatus and Stanserhorn mountains. The Lucerne cityscape is characterized by the covered, medieval Chapel Bridge, which, with its gable paintings, is one of the oldest covered wooden bridges in Europe. Another landmark of the city is the Musegg Wall, which has been preserved in its original, defensive shape except for a tower. The city is definitely worth a visit!

    Thermalbad Brigerbad

    Bike Touring Highlight

    The thermal baths in Brigerbad are the largest open-air and thermal baths that can be found in the Alps. It offers a spacious outdoor area and a recently completely redesigned SPA and wellness oasis. Exactly the right thing to indulge your tired muscles with some relaxation. - If you are no longer willing to pedal one lap on the same day after an extensive relaxation break, there is a campsite with bungalows right next door.

    Gasthaus Alpenrose

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    An inn in the middle of Walserdorf, you shouldn't miss it. The traditional houses are not only worth a look from the outside. Here you will also be well catered for and you can relax after the strenuous uphill.

    Baumwipfelpfad Mogelsberg

    Mountain Biking Highlight

    The unique treetop path Neckertal combines sustainability and nature experience and is an asset to the Neckertal and the surrounding area. The beautiful natural and cultural landscape has been preserved and makes it possible to see the forest with different eyes. The first tree-top walk in Switzerland was opened in May 2018 in Mogelsberg in the Toggenburg holiday region near St. Gallen. The 500 meter long and barrier-free path meanders gently from the forest floor up to the treetops.
