Stunning landscapes and adapted services specially designed for cyclists, make the region of Vaud ideal for biking excursions
The region of Vaud in the Lake Geneva region offers a multitude of landscapes to cycling fans! About twenty marked SwitzerlandMobility routes take bikers and mountain bikers across awe-inspiring landscapes: soothing lakes, demanding mountain passes as well as vineyards and the countryside.
The region is one of the preferred regions for SwitzerlandMobility, the ambassador of soft mobility in Switzerland. In addition to the hiking paths and tracks adapted to roller skates, there are many routes to be explored by bikes or mountain bikes.
The routes are suited for cyclists with varied tastes and of all levels. The Jura and the Vaud Alps are the playing field of athletes. They tackle the mountain paths together with family or friends and have their physical effort rewarded by breathtaking panoramas.
Cyclists looking for relaxed routes can enjoy a brisk ride across the countryside or vineyards leisurely contemplating the scenery and stopping for a gourmet break to taste terroir products before setting off again. The lakes remain the ideal excursion destination for soft-paced family outings. To make these cyclist adventures available to all, most sports shops in the region offer e-bikes for hire.
Thanks to the more efficient electric bikes and mountain bikes, everyone can now take up the challenge in mountainous terrains.
The transportation of luggage, a service highly appreciated by cycling tourists, enables them to cycle for several days without the additional weight of their bags. This service is on offer for two- and three-day circuits in the Vaud Jura Parc or for the four-day tour of the Vaud Alps.
