An overview of the provision for cycling and cyclists in Switzerland...

Cycling in Switzerland is at its best from spring through to autumn.

Switzerland has a well-planned national cycling network with nine interconnecting routes with a total length of more than 3,000 Km. Roads, which are for the most part tarred and low in traffic, pass through landscapes, villages and towns, alongside lakes, over high passes and through alpine valleys.

Bikes can be hired in most towns as well as from over 150 Swiss railway stations. The Swiss railway (SBB) offers many special cycling tours and trips (brochures are available at railway stations) and bikes rented can be returned to any other participating station.
