Albisrieden to Opfikon by Bike

So it looks like I will be stationed at Opfikon for a few months, so today went out on the push iron to figure out a decent route while the roads are Sunday-quiet.

This is the best I could do - taking in proper cycle routes where possible:

Anyone make a similar journey and has a better route? Would be interested to hear. The other alternative seems to be somehow climb up Hönggerberg and somehow swing a right at ETH - might try that to see if the roads are quieter / more pleasant.

Cheers,
Nick

Re: Albisrieden to Opfikon by Bike

Would say it is good. Up to the EHT is not really worth it.

Some indicators: The Limmat is around 400 meters above sea level.
Buecheggplatz at 471, ETH Höngg at 524.

Not sure why you do not go straight to Fellenbergstrasse from your home (Oh I see you mostly sticked to Veloroutes https://map.veloland.ch/?lang=en&rou...1348&N=1248512).
Hardbrücke can be a PITA, and you will have to climb down the stairs.
Check if Josefstrasse is not a bit quiter (you can cycle through Röntgenplatz).

Duttwilerbrûcke might even be easier. Agree that Hardbrücke is messy with all the roadworks.
