Rather you than me...
50kms a day - whoever does that must have really toned legs.

If you have an e-bike it is doable - OH does 41 a day when he rides his, and I imagine Zuri- Winti is flatter. But the days are getting shorter and colder, so his bike riding season is coming to an end.

Re: Anybody commute by bicycle from Winterthur to Zurich?

I actually do it. I am wondering if it is common since actually maximum it takes me about 1 hour 15 min (slow ride). Using train can actually take me 1 hour if I don't plan well (waiting in the station for more than 15 minutes).

it's going to be cool to know someone else is also ding it. ;-)

Do you have an e-bike or a regular one?

I love biking, but hate rain/sleet/ice when on it, so biking stops being an option as soon as the commute exceeds a certain distance.

It is a regular roadbike. I bought it cheap (2nd handed and problematic). I hope someone else is also doing it. Hope to hear that.
