Try here (already a few rides for 2011 in the calendar and more to come) or for trail information here.

BTW: there is a lot more than the Antenna trail to keep those of us that like to ride trail.

I ride arround the Zurich area and have also been looking for some riding partners. My local trail knowledge is a bit limited but I'll be riding the Uetliberg DH trail some night this week. Drop me a line if you fancy it?

Antenna trail is the main municipal trail which starts by the Antenna on Uetliberg.

Swiss Alpine Adventure is a website which gives information on ski resorts and bike trails in Switzerland. It has a facebook group where we organise group rides on Tuesday evenings in and around Zurich (Starting in April) and also day trips to other locations through out Switzerland about once a month or so. The first group rides of 2011 are starting on March 19th. More info is available on the facebook group. It's an English language MTB group.

The Dolder trail is constantly evolving. It was/is initially an illegal trail which keeps on getting destroyed and rebuilt. Hopefully now with the Zuritrails group they will get permission from Green Stadt Zurich to build it once and for all.

It's what I'd consider a relatively pedally freeride trail. It's not steep, and not overly technical (except for the mud) but lots of fun.

Very rough description here:
http://www.swissalpineadventure.com/...h/dolder-trail

I'm hoping to get over there and check it out the latest developments some night soon.

I rode it on Wednesday night. It was in the best condition I've ever seen it. They've done a lot of work on the bottom section. We got to the bottom and just had to ride back up to do it again.
