Good to know

LUGGAGE TRANSPORT

With the exception of our one-centre holidays, your luggage will be transported from hotel to hotel along the route. On setting out in the morning you simply leave your luggage in reception.
You will only need to carry a small backpack with your cycling notes and maps, waterproofs, sun cream, camera and lunch. Your suitcase will be transported to your next hotel , waiting for you in the evening.

 

SIGNALIZATION

Cycle routes are generally accessible routes with no or as little as possible traffic. Surfaces are usually tarmac or concrete and the routes are signposted with red signs bearing a white cycle pictogram.

 

DOCUMENTATION

Majority of our cycling holidays start with a personal tour briefing at your first hotel when documentation is explained and handed over by our local suppliers. These include maps and cycling instructions.

 

PUBLIC TRANSPORT

Switzerland is well known for its outstanding public transport system that works like clockwork. From lake steamers and buses to funiculars and gondolas meeting each other – it simply is admirable and is always at hand to help cover steeper ascents or shorten the distance.
