Re: Cycling clubs in Zurich / Thalwil Area

Hi Peter, likewise I'm new to Switzerland and moved to Horgen about three weeks ago. I was actually, this morning, exploring the albis pass. If you're up for a spin at the weekend then give me a shout.

Re: Cycling clubs in Zurich / Thalwil Area

Hey Peter, It's definitely a small world in Zurich, especially when it comes to English-speaking cyclists! :-) Glad to see you've posted on here-- This site is where I've had the opportunity to make life-long cycling friends which started with posting cycling meet-ups, etc..., so hopefully it works that way for you as well!

And, I may be around this weekend and interested in doing some cycling as well..... If so, I would be happy to show you some of my favorite nearby routes.

Happy cycling,
Becky

Check out Hillseeker's profile before you go biking with her!
I know the type. Leave one standing when going uphill. Probably asks if you suffer from asthma if you are a bit out of breath at the top!

Sorry, couldn't resist it. I remember her posts from the old days.

Hi Becky, thank you. I'd love to learn some of your favourite local routes. Remember, climbing is not my strength! I'll PM you.

Re: Cycling clubs in Zurich / Thalwil Area

Sorry for rectifying an old post, but was interested to see if you guys were still keen to get out for a spin. I'm arriving in Zurich in early December and am looking to get out on the bike ASAP. Though December may be a bit chilly, perhaps I should hold off until Spring has sprung!

Re: Cycling clubs in Zurich / Thalwil Area

the best one i can think of is this one

http://www.alpineadventure.ch/home.html

its run by an EF member and suits all levels,
lets say they do beginner, mid to toplevel (experience, fitness) tours.

Hi, yes, we've been out a couple of times, where are you based? We're both in Horgen. Look forward to hearing from you.

Re: Cycling clubs in Zurich / Thalwil Area

Hi Peter. I've yet to put down roots (arrive early December) but will be working in District 5. So not too far from there, hopefully +/-20 minutes by train.

What sort of riding is your preference? I'm happy for a couple to a few hours out on the road bike, usually up to about 25km/h. I'm flexible though.

Cheers!
