Cycling Club or Social Cycling in Zurich

Hello all,

I will be moving to Zurich in December for the foreseeable future and am really looking forward to it. I want to pick up where I leave off and join a cycling club (or a group of social cyclists) as soon as possible after I arrive. I have moved around a fair bit but have maintained a love for cycling and find the social side (including post-ride coffee) as rewarding as the physical side!

I'm fairly keen but not super fit; average around 25km/h on the roads and comfortable up to 100km+ at that speed. I rode mountain bikes in a previous life so not against some off-road two wheel action too.

Can anyone point me in the direction of some like-minded folk!?

Cheers!

PS. I will also need to by a bike upon arrival as I'm traveling light.

Any bike shop recommendations in the Zurich area, otherwise I am comfortable buying pre-owned? I will likely pick up a commuter and something nicer for the weekend.

Welcome to Switzerland! I'm confident you will find it to be an ideal place for enjoying your love for cycling, and also sharing it with others!

While there used to be more posts on this forum for rides and other cycling-focused events, there hasn't been so much the past couple years (at least I haven't been organising any myself, just due to being more busy)- maybe that will change, but in the meantime I suggest you contact "Swiss Alpine Adventure" if you haven't already, as they organise a lot of good cycling and other adventure meet-ups.

Have fun and hopefully meet you out on a ride sometime next year! (yes I admit I'm a warm-weather rider )

Cheers,
hillseeker
