Road Cycling Clubs or People Interested in Group Rides

Hi all,

I am new to Winterthur and my husband and I are both avid road cyclists. This is more for my husband since I am out of action until our baby comes in August but I am looking to find some people who enjoy a road ride and are wanting to go for group rides or just join my husband on weekends?

He is a little out of shape at the moment but last June he successfully completed the Raid Pyrenees - 750km, 18 cols, 4.5 days through the French Pyrenees so he has done some serious cycling and seen some massive climbs.

If this is something that interests you please message me so we can try and arrange something as now the weather is warming up it seems the perfect time to go out and enjoy nature.

Have a good week all.

There is a whole load of activity both road and mountain going on here.

I've met a few people who go with them and they are pretty socially minded cyclists but they organise both road and mountain bike rides.

I am also in Winti and am an avid cyclist, although I have a mountain bike not a road bike, so I tend to cruise at about 30kmph (not 45 like you road bike people!)

There is a fun bike club here in Winti called Veloce which is all about touring and seeing the sights (not about race training!): http://www.veloce.ch/

If you're new to Switzerland then Veloce would be a fun place to start

I like to get in a ride where I can and have just finished oiling my new chain and will be getting out for the 3rd time this year today. I like to go evenings after work for a quick 1 or 2 hours ride

I've also done a number of mountain passes and am always keen for a new challenge: but not really keen on doing 200km in one day.... my max was about 120km.

So if you or hubby want a ride around here, I can show you some good road routes that are beautiful and quiet, and can be as difficult as you want them to be.... PM for more....

Re: Road Cycling Clubs or People Interested in Group Rides

Thought I'd revive this old thread!

Currently looking for a Road Cycle Club in the Zürich region and/or a regular group ride in Zürich. I'm an active cyclist, but new to group riding. Just looking to meet some other people in the area to help push myself a little harder!

I ride currently 3-4x a week, and enjoy a longer ride on the weekends, either rolling terrain or straight up climbs. Current FTP is about 3.3 watts/kg.

Would be grateful for any leads!
