Hoping for a bike tour for this approaching Fall. Thanks.
I lived there 1985-1990. Very expensive. Great marked bike routes. Brouter website knows them all. Could camp freely in the Alpen pastures. Avoid the private campgrounds as they as wall to wall noisy caravans. Many more marked bike paths on roads these days. A few years ago I road from Rapperswil-Jonas / Landquart / Davos / Scoul and onwards to Dubrovnik,Croatia. Depends on your targeted destinations for advice. Camp or hostel/hotel? It's all beautiful.
A couple of years ago, I crossed the Swiss border from Northern Italy. I have pedaled from South to North, and headed to Liechtenstein after turning my way to the East in Andermatt. Switzerland is a wonderful country for cycletourists with its picturesque nature, high mountains, dedicated cycling paths and extraordinarily organized signing posts for travelers. I really enjoyed climbing Oberalppass, it was a life time experience to me.
It's an extremely expensive country, but we are not looking for fine dining as cyclers after all :) Supermarkets will help a lot.
If you would like to ask anything else, please feel free.
Make sure you swim in Lake Geneva one time, no matter how cold it is! Nicest lake I have ever swam in my life!
I live in Zurich, Switzerland. For different cycleroutes check out this website: https://www.schweizmobil.ch/en/cycling-in-switzerland.html
I hope you will enjoy your time here in this beautiful country. If you need some specific infos or a place to stay, don't hesitate to contact me.
I'd recommend touring along a river or into the mountains (Rhine from Lake of Constance to Schaffhausen is very beautiful, following up the small river Glatt towards Greifensee and up to the Alps, over Pragelpass for example).. but this always depends on your time and interests.
Have a nice trip (:
