Moving from South Africa to Zurich area, expecting action

Hi all,

My wife and I are moving to near Zurich (probably Schaffhausen or Winterthur) in November. We are from the UK originally, have lived in India, Singapore and South Africa, and now my wife is being posted to Switzerland by her multinational. I am on career break studying sports psychology, coaching psychology and organisational/business psychology at postgraduate level.

I'm a good skier, experienced motorcyclist, novice mountain-biker, regular endurance event competitor, and always up for a beer. Obviously all these activities are in play in Switzerland, and I see from the forum there are lots of active participants, so hoping to join in when I arrive. Because I study by distance learning I have the flexibility for mid-week excursions etc.

Cheers John Hall
