We offer a wide range of cycling activities and services: campaigns to promote commuting to work by bike, cycling initiatives at schools for children and young people, awards of excellence for bike-friendly cities, and various cycling-related publications.

Switzerland - a cycling country

A network of 9 scenic bicycle routes (3'300 km in total) throughout the country was opened in 1998. These sign-posted routes enable cyclotourists to explore the most beautiful landscapes of Switzerland on mostly paved trails undisturbed by motor traffic. Hotels, hostels and B&B-places along these routes are specialized in accommodating cyclists. Bicycles can be rented at many railway stations, and the Swiss Railways offer bike-friendly services.
