Did you cycle, skate, walk or run in the Slow Up on Sunday? The sun was shining and there were all forms of non-motorised transport on display – even a horse and trap.
If you missed this event or if you enjoyed it and want to take part in another Slow Up please check here for details of the next Slow Up event which takes place in Schwyz – Swiss Knife Valley. In fact there are Slow Up events all over Switzerland. We are at the end of the 2012 schedule but check on this link for details for the rest of the year and for future events next year.
The Slow Up also passed through one of the many “chilbis”taking place all over the Zurich region at this time of year. This one was in Mannerdorf.

Don’t miss the “Slow Up” next Sunday 23rd September around Lake Zurich from Meilen to Rapperswil and then on to Schmerikon. It’s 28 km in total and you can do as much or as little of it as you like, by biking, skating, pushing a pram….. It’s mainly flat and there are refreshment booths and snack stops all along the route. The road along the lake from Meilen is shut to cars and all road traffic from 9am till 6pm – and the road is yours from 10am – 5pm!
A great family day out and for
