Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
The Greifensee is located in the canton of Zurich in Switzerland and is separated by the Pfannenstielkette from Lake Zurich. With a length of 6 kilometers and a maximum width of 1.6 kilometers, it is the second largest lake in the canton. Its shape resembles that of a fish: in the middle the lake tapers to a width of less than 800 meters.
The catchment area of Greifensee is 160 km². Main inflows are the Ustermer Aa (outflow of the Pfäffikersees) and the Aabach. The runoff is the Glatt, which drains a large part of the Zurich Oberland. Wikipedia

The "cycle path" around the Greifensee is quite narrow and is populated by inline skaters, slow cyclists with child trailers and even walkers. In my opinion, the path used in oncoming traffic (!) is not a suitable training slope for racing cyclists, it is far too dangerous to want to ride there at "full speed"!
