Lugano - Zurich by bicycle

I am planning to do a 2 day trip from Lugano to Zurich by bicycle.
Maybe someone went already this way or vise versa.
The first day I want to get from Lugano to Andermatt and stay there overnight; the second day is Andermatt Zurich. By the evening of the second day I am planning to take a train back to Lugano.
I would be glad to hear any recommendations on this route, especially on grossing Passo del San Gottardo. I know that the old road is still closed, but have no idea when it will be opened. Also I am pretty unfamiliar with the cycling roads in cantons other than Ticino. Maybe someone knows the websites where I can see the reports or download the GPS tracks.
Thank you very much for any kind of information.

Re: Lugano - Zurich by bicycle

Friends have done it, two days should be no problem.

The only option is the old road, the new road is generally closed to bicycles/walking, however, both the old and the new open at the same time, probably next weekend.
