Group bike rides in Nyon area

Hi, does anyone know of any organized weekly road bike rides in the Nyon area? I'm looking to join a good (but not too fast) group.
Thanks!

It would help if you were more specific ... distances and speeds that you would be looking for.

Thanks for the feedback.

Distances around 60km-100km, ave speed 25km/h-35km/h depending on route.

Try the local bike shops in Nyon/Gland. I know Bike Switzerland in Geneva has started their (free) group rides already.

Re: Group bike rides in Nyon area

Am not a cyclist myself but husband is and he rates the bike shop on Grand Rue, Gland as the best around these parts( can't remember the name, sorry) Nils is the owner and they have ride outs from the shop each week during Spring / summer. Staff in shop are friendly & knowledgeable, you could call in and have a chat to them.
HTH.

Did you have any success? I am looking for the same... I am going to talk to BikeSpot in Rolle on Saturday to see if they are up to anything.

Looking for people who can help me train towards this year's Etape du Tour....

Just spoke to Bikespot in Rolle - their Wednesday night ride outs are starting again just after Easter - 19:00 - good weather only (!) - 50km with a return route to limit to 35km if required.

I'm hoping to go to DrBike & MrRide shop over the weekend so I'll let you know the ride details once I get them.

I'm doing L'Etape this year too, so need to start training outside soon....

DrBike & MrRide do weekday rides from 7pm on Tues and Thurs normally but worth checking with them on the day as they are heading out tonight instead since better weather is forecast.
