A fun cycling guide.
Finally, a cycling guide for people who love to relax and enjoy the ride. All of these 33 day trips are flat or downhill (with a few gentle rises here and there): leisurely pedalling along rivers, picnic stops at spectacular lakes, cruising descents through verdant valleys.
Every Swiss region is included in this lushly-photographed and diverse book, from the Engadin to Ticino, the Swiss Plateau to the lakes of French-speaking-Switzerland - even the most mountainous regions are here, with gradual downhill routes. This guide gives you the time to really take in the sights Switzerland is famous for.

- Each route includes swimming, refreshment and sightseeing highlights
- Each route starts and ends at a SBB station, and many routes can be done in sequence as multi-day tours
- Easy-to-understand icons help families, beginners, couples and the adventurous choose their next relaxing escape
Swiss-Canadian writer Katrin Gygax has been biking since she sat on the saddle of her brother's orange bike at age 9. She rode up and down the hills of West Vancouver, where she grew up, and later across Europe with equal motivation. Since 2019, she's been doing a flatland Tour de Suisse every summer. These are her favourite routes. Katrin is also the author of Today's Office Looks Like This. 60 unconventional workspaces in Switzerland.
