I moved to Gex this week from San Francisco where I had been living for 27 years. My wife has taken a job working for an NGO in Geneva and I am interested in the following: (a) fun running clubs and races in and around Geneva (b) schools that might be interested in either a full time or part time person to teach either psychology or law (c) suggestions as to where and how to get started taking French lessons (d) opportunities for freelance journalism (e) list members best piece of advice for what worked really well for you when you first got here.
I am at the early stages of organising a cycle ride around Lake Geneva on June 8th next year. The ride is an informal sponsored cycle for fit cyclists who can choose between a 120km and 180km route. It's completely free to do and there is simply a commitment to raise some money for an established cycling charity called SuitsonBikes. We tried it out last year with a group of about 16 people and it was big success. There is a basic website - please feel free to visit it and spread the word - we are looking for a good crowd for a fantastic day's cycling. Let me know if you have any questions that aren't on the website. Peter Sibley
Help please, I am looking for a horse riding school near messery. chens or douvaine that may have other english speaking children. My daughter is 12 years old and is desparate to continue her riding since we moved here but she has no French and is very shy of speaking French. Are there any stables who have English speaking children and /or instuctors who speak English ?
Hello, I am new to Geneva, working for the UN. Looking for a tennis partner to play preferably twice a week or more, or less, depends on our schedules. I am not a beginner, but not a tennis animal either, I'd say somewhere close to intermediate. Location-wise preferably Geneva, but can be flexible. Please email George at: email@example.com
Hi Does anyone know of any good horse riding schools/yards in the Gland/Nyon area that speak English? I would like to start horseriding again....I would also be interested in getting back into helping out on the yard too. Any contacts/help are much appreciated! :)
Just moved to the area, have time on my hands and I'm getting flabby. Wonder if anyone fancies company on rides during the week. I only have a road-bike at the moment and I'm not very fit but I can stand a couple of hours riding and it's better in company. Ideally a small group who don't want to race but wouldn't mind a 'fitness' outing, maybe a café stop on longer runs. I'm looking to ride a "Sportif" later in the year but really I'm starting from scratch [again!] and just want company on progressive endurance rides.
