Cycle ride to work from Kilchberg to Opfikon

Hi was wondering my husband and I are moving to Zurich and he will be based in Opfikon. Would it be a reasonable cycle ride from Kilchberg and even though it says 25 minutes drive would you say it was a long 45min-1hr cycle ride for him to work?

Hi. I think you have to define reasonable. It is not quite 20km which is too much for me each way, but your husband might be different. He would have to ride through the city which could be a bit of a pain and depending on the route he will most likely hit hills.

Also, where in Kilchberg will you live. If you are down at the lake NP but if you are up at the top getting home could be a bit of a struggle. There are a few options to get up but at the end of the day I suspect it takes a good bit of energy !

The upside of course is that there is train so if he is not up for the ride he can ride his bike to the train station !

Hi

We live in Adliswil just next to Kilchberg and my husband used to cycle to Opfikon (when he worked there) during the summer. It used to take him between 40 mins and hour.

Hope your move to Switzerland goes well.
