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

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: gshak@yahoo.com

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.
