<sings> Climb every mountain </sings> anyone been to Switzerland?

Folks - the wife is on a MISSION(TM).

She has decided that we need to take a real holiday away from HK and she's going to plan it to death.

Suggestion of Switzerland came up (with perhaps a week in Germany - we've got friends there).

Today she txts me that there is a marathon in Switzerland in the last week of July (she's nuts I tell you).

SOOOOO......my question.

Has anybody here ridden in Switzerland or done a bike tour there?

My Google-foo has revealed a few options, but many are a bit soft (40-60km per day? Fffft, buddy - I do that before breakfast). I could just do my own thing, but a multi day with support would be much easier.

Some first hand experiences would be fantastic.

Mr Beanz - you are the resident mountain goat...any wisdom?

I live in Switzerland and found this website here pretty good for planning. It also has infrastructure info. http://www.veloland.ch/en/welcome.cfm There might be some info to combine some pre-breakfast stages to a realworld one. The marathon may be radmarathon.ch, which is BEGINNING of July

hope this helps! happy touring
