Bike hire and Alpine cable car: Help!

My parents are coming to visit and we originally planned to hire bikes at Unterterzen Intersport and take the cable car up to Flumserberg. However, the cable car is out of action at the moment for inspection work!

Does anyone know of an alternative place in the mountains where I can hire a bike and directly take a cable car up to the top (with the bike)?

I live in Winterthur and am prepared to drive up to 2 hours.

Thanks!

Zermatt. You can get up to Rothorn, Gornergrat or Schwarzsee/Trockner Steg with a bike. Several bike hire shops in town.

Good luck getting to Zermatt in 2hrs from Winterthur

Try Lenzerheide, might make it in 2hrs, but plenty of bikes

The Flumserberg site shows everything open:

Are you sure about that? I can't see any mention of it being closed on their web site (in fact it explicitly shows as open) and it is supposed to run all year (it is officially a public transport route up to Tannenboden, hence the GA is valid on it).
