    Mountain Biking in Switzerland

    I'm planning a Europe trip with my buddy and we'll be driving around France, Italy, Switzerland and possibly Germany. He's not a biker but I might try to get out for a ride to explore the Alps at some point. How's the biking at Interlaken? Are there any trails around Geneva that are easily accessibly via public transportation?

    You could go to Portes du Soleil (50 km to Geneve): 13 resorts, 560 km of downhill trails...the best bike park in Europe!!!!

    Or you can go to Zermatt. They don't have a park but beautiful alpine single trails.

    Most of the ski resort and mountain areas in Switzerland have great riding. Quickest and easiest way is when you get to an area, pop into a LBS and buy the local singletrailmap for the area. It is a 1:25000 scale map with all the best singletrail loops marked and detailed (German only). Costs 25chf and well worth it for the best riding in the area.

    I work in Morges and I don't know any good trails, it is pretty agricultural directly around Morges. Above Lausanne there are some trails I know but nothing spectacular. Then again I never really cared to explore the Morges/Lausanne area too much as the biking in the Alpes Vaudois or Wallis is so good.

    Further up North you will find the Jura where I did some good trails. Go East into the valley and you could do some very good riding (Alpes Vaudois/Wallis).

    We ride pretty much every weekend so if you care to hook up one day.

    Gary,

    You can try google translate. Unfortunately there's no english nor french version of the page. Another source which you can use is juride.net - these guys are the swiss distributor for banshee bikes by the way. Hope this helps!

    cheers mat
