    <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
    Think of bicycles as rideable art that can just about save the world. Imagine, they can even have cupholders...
