MTB, Climbing in Horgen

Hello!

I am staying in Horgen as an Au Pair. I am considering buying a mountain bike to ride the superb trails around here, as I do a lot of it back in Scotland, and I also I have taken my Climbing Harness, and shoes, but no gear.
I do a lot of climbing also back home in Scotland, and consider myself a confident and safe outdoor climber with good experience.

I also enjoy going to the gym to do weightlifting!

I just woud like to meet people on my time off to do either climbing, or mountain biking, and make friends for the time I am here. Any advice from anyone is super appreciated I am a down to earth person, who has completed university, and is outgoing.


Callum

Re: MTB, Climbing in Horgen

Callum, Check out the "Swiss Alpine Adventures" group on the www.meetup.com site. They have a very keen, knowledgeable group of MTB riders, based in Zurich. I know that there are also climbers amongst that group and other outdoor based Zurich Meetup groups. Very friendly people.
http://www.kletterzentrum.com is a marvellous indoor climbing centre, based in an old gas works centre.

"Zurich Hike and Outdoors" is the other very active, friendly, Zurich-based Meetup group that I am aware of.
