Swimming Lakes

For a few weeks every year, the weather is the way we would like to have it the rest of the time: Pretty warm. And when it finally arrives, we all want one thing: to go to the lake. The best way to get there is of course by bike but when in doubt, go by train and bike. And then: splish, splash!
