bike & cheese - we make our own cheese

This event is for people over 16 years.

07:00-07:15 we meet in the zürich train station and take the train via olten to burgdorf. in in burgdorf we pick up our electric bicycle.

-Start with the biketour on the herzroute Burdorf willisau:                                            Just after Burgdorf, the route leads through the unique rolling landscape of the Emmental. You are treated to views extending from the Jura to the Alps. On the way to the tiny medieval town of Willisau, impressive inns offer an invitation to take a break. Thank the electric bicycle its much easyer to go up;-) the bike route its medium.

-during the bike tour we make a stop in the emmentaler cheese factory. there we come to the enjoyment for a privat guided tour in English.

-afterwards we making in old tradition our own big semi-hard cheese. when we are done with the cheesemaking, we have wait to wait min 4 month. in a second meetup, we will celebrate our own Big cheese.

18:03 We take the train to zürich.

now this is complicated.                                                                                              the cost for the guided tour, and make our own cheese, and the storage of the cheese its 35.00 CHF

And the rent for the bike included helmet is with half tax or ga its 53.00 

that cost totaly  89 chf

This you you have to tranfer before. this is for my safty. when i reserve you bike and you dont show up then i have to pay. i dont want this.

now you have 2 options to choose:

you paid the 89 before. now you can buy a ticket from your city to burgdorf and back from willisau to your city.

or you take  the railaway combi ticket, bike and train. comes in the end cheaper.

when you comes on the 08.09 with your railway ticket, i give you the 53.00 sfr back. i  need  53.00 as a depot.  

20 is the max. people.

    Hey Gian-Andrea, Great idea.

    Have you made reservations for the bikes yet? there's only seven available on the 8th according to I have now reserved one for me just to see how this works. They say you have to make a reservation prior to buying the combi ticket. Maybe they have more if you call of course. Where do I send you the 53 CHF?
