Cycling from Milano to Zürich

Hello dear fellow cyclists,

I am planning to cycle from Milano to Zürich in the end of August. Has anyone done this and would have recommendations for the route or places to stay the night(s)? I own both a road and a mountain bike but was thinking mountain bike might be better for that.

Thanks in advance for any tips you might have. Also, so far I haven`t found anyone (crazy enough) to join me so if you always wanted to do the same trip, maybe we could join the forces

There's no trains in the Gotthard tunnel yet - that would be your flattest route if you're looking for "crazy"

I will not be joining you. The first 100 Km look dangerous to me, especially as the tunnels are usually badly lit.

I would take the train if possible, especially for the difficult parts.

I will do my best to avoid the tunnels and take the small country side/mountain roads instead. I have already been cycling between Lugano and Como but Milano to Como and Lugano to Zürich tracks are not so familiar to be. But yeah, maybe it would be a good idea to take a train from Milano to a bit more north to avoid the worst traffic...
