You cycle along the Rhone route no. 1 via Ernen until you reach the tunnel entrance at "Steimaata" and then follow the cycle and hiking trail (unpaved road) through the Twingi gorge. At the end of the gorge the trail ascends to the main road to Binn.
For the return journey we recommend a small detour (5min) to Ze Binne, a tiny picturesque hamlet above the reservoir (turn left at the bus stop Langthal below Binn). At the entrance to Ausserbinn turn right and follow the TCS cycling route 1 up and over the hill (road partly unpaved) to Ernen and from Ernen take the Rhone route back to Blitzingen.
