Our 2013 Bikes are on Sale!

Are you looking for a new road bike, mountain bike, city bike or touring bike ? Our 2013 rental fleet has is now on sale and on-line !

In general, we take the original retail price of our bikes and then sell for 50% of that.
We then go over the entire bike: clean it, grease it, change brake pads and tires if necessary and you ride it home !
If you don’t live in Geneva, but somewhere else in Switzerland, we can send the bike to you by train for just 20 chf.
Some example prices of our 2013 bikes:

BMC Gran Fondo Shimano 105 = 1190 chf
Street Racer Ultegra = 1190 chf
Alpen Challenge Shimano 105 = 990 chf

Our 2014 Guided Tour Dates

If you’ve ever thought about doing a guided tour with us, then next year is the year.
It will be our 10th-year anniversary !

Also, we may discontinue these guided tours in 2015.
That’s right. Our independent tours, rentals and bike sales are taking a lot of our time.
Meanwhile, our guided tours take a lot of planning and they’re not always profitable.

In any case, we’re committed to 10 years of Bike Switzerland guided tours, so we’re going to make these tours happen again in 2014.
Here are the dates:

Lite Tour: June 19th to June 30th
Challenge Tour: July 7 to July 17th
Jura Tour: July 31 to August 11th.

You can lock in the 2013 prices for the 2014 tours by reserving with a deposit before January 1st.
On January 1st, prices will go up approximately 6%, so best to get on board soon.
You can find more information here.

On vacation!

Although the season isn’t quite finished, things have slowed down long enough to allow me to take some vacation time.
Over the next week, I’ll be cycling around the Engadin region and exploring the Swiss National park in Les Grisons.
In addition to getting some rest, I’m hoping to find some inspiration for future Bike Switzerland routes.
Stay tuned to our facebook page to see the pictures all this week. Click here for our page.

Thanks for reading !
