This varied round tour starts and ends at the Stadi bicycle shop (Baldeggstrasse 18A) in Hochdorf. Tyres can be inflated and chains oiled before setting off. The shop also stocks accessories, equipment and clothing.

The initial climb after the start should present no problems. There is a marvellous alpine panorama to the south. The Pilatus, Titlis and Rigi with the Bernese Alps in the background provide additional stimulus. High-speed downhills and technical single trails soon call for complete concentration. The Horben (approx. 850 m) offers superb views of the Freiamt and Reuss valley with Lake Zug in the distance. The mixed woodland on the summit of the Lindenberg has no ascents to speak of and is quickly negotiated.

At the halfway mark (approx. 35 km) you pass Hallwyl Castle and cross the valley. The climb up the Homberg (688 m) is brief yet tough. On reaching the summit, you are rewarded with amazing views of Lake Hallwil. Make time to visit the viewing platform. The garden restaurant on the Homberg offers welcome respite.

Refreshed and fortified, it is time to turn towards home. It is downhill all the way from here on. The final single trails are guaranteed to make an impression.
