Our own Swiss-made Touring Bike

2014 marks our 10th year anniversary. To celebrate, we’ll be introducing our own touring bike in 2014.
We’ve been working with a local Swiss manufacturer to make the perfect bike for our tours: triple chain ring, Ultegra components and  a comfortable geometry.
You can see the bicycle and all of the specifications by clicking here.
The bike and the manufacturing process is also featured in our new podcast below.

Our 2014 Fleet

In addition to our own Bike Switzerland touring bike, we’re going to be working with Felt and Kona bicycles in 2014.
The following machines will be in our fleet of road bikes in 2014.

We’re working hard to update our website to showcase the new fleet. Hopefully all will be up and running by the end of January.
The bikes will be in the shop and ready to rent at some point before March 21st, 2014.

Doing a tour? One More Week for 2013 Prices

As every year, we change our prices on January 1st. This means that you can still have our 2013 prices by getting in your deposit before midnight on December 31st (Swiss time).

Deposits are 600 chf per person. The balance doesn’t need to be paid until a few months before the tour.
