Zurich-Train-Alps-Road Bike-Train-Zurich

I am planning a cycle trip next weekend and want to find a full day trip from Zurich taking the trainearly with my bike, finding a nice sceneic alpine route with a good climb (80km to 120km), and train back late afternoon.

Can anyone recommend a train station to get me to the foot of the alps and perhaps a good route on the bike?

Thanks

You might look at the Rentabike.ch website for difficult ("schwierig") routes:

Instead of riding downhill from Engelberg station to Stansstad station, do the opposite for a challenge.

Train to Fluelen, ride the Klausenpass to Glarus. Train back.

Enjoy
