Re: Mountain Bike (MTB) Tours/Trails in Switzerland

I've just started using an app called Cyclemeter by Abvio, and I've found it to be really excellent so far. Sells for $4.99.

You can import GPX, KML, or CSV data for routes. I haven't imported any routes yet, so I can't comment too much on this feature.

The rest of the app is really great for tracking your ride and it provides you with a nice graphic and data at the end of each ride. There's a ton of features to customize in the app for whatever you wish to track during and post ride.

Here's a couple of my rides, one road and one mountain, for you to check out:

- Road ride around Zugersee
- Mountain ride around Lenzerheide

You can stop and start the app manually, or set it to auto stop when you stop during your ride. The Lenzerheide ride I let run for the day so it includes chairlift and gondola rides, etc. Kind of interesting to see your entire path for the day.

Bottom line, I very happy with it to date and highly recommend it.

Re: Mountain Bike (MTB) Tours/Trails in Switzerland

Hello All!

Is there a reason why this thread is dead?

I am relatively new to Switzerland and after a long bikeless summer last year, I now have a mountain bike here.

I am based in Zurich and would like to know if there are any other MTBers who would like to plan some rides for the spring?

I have an enduro bike and tend to ride singletrack/downhill but am generally up for anything.

Hope to hear from you over the next few months!

Cheers

Chris

Re: Mountain Bike (MTB) Tours/Trails in Switzerland

I think it's dead because Eire (Dave) now posts his tours on the swiss alpine adventure website. They also organise rides and run a mountain bike community through their meetup group. I think there is a link from the website, there is at least a way of contacting him directly there to ask what the story is.

Actually, even the meetup-page is a sort of relict these days because he does most things on Facebook.
The meetup page is for people like me who detest Facebook and wouldn't sign-up at gun-point.

No, not true - all sign ups and events are still only through Meetup. Not to mention that there are other guys who organizing rides there too, so it could be difficult, if to take FB approach only.

Re: Mountain Bike (MTB) Tours/Trails in Switzerland

Hi all,

I am now a member on MeetUp. but there still doenst seem to be so much going on there either.

For anyone interested, I regularly ride the Zurich lake and would be interested to meet up with other cyclists in the Zurich, Oerlikon, area to explore the area.

I would also be very interested to meet up with mountain bikers who could help me find some local trails. ive only played around on the Ultiberg and Zurichberg so far.

Please feel free to contact me on christopher.w.bewley@gmail.com if you are interested in a pedal. I would be open to anything from a fun ride, to a road cafe ride/all day tour, to a day in the mountains.

Thanks very much

Seriously? There were 11 events in August and there have been 5 events in September already. Thats roughly one event every 3 days.

Re: Mountain Bike (MTB) Tours/Trails in Switzerland

Could you tell me which groups they were in? I may just not have found the right search criteria.
