    I’ll be moving to Zug in Switzerland in a few months.

    Does anyone have any experience of mountain biking in the area? Are there good trails straight from the doorstep, or do you need to travel a bit? What is the scene like? Is it easy to make riding buddies (I don’t speak German… yet)?

    Thanks for your insight!

    I can’t offer specific Zug advice, but I know Swiss Alpine Adventure (Dave runs it) are extremely active in warmer months and are based in Zug (and organize a hell of a lot of cool winter sports stuff). https://www.meetup.com/SwissAlpineAdventure/

    Also https://www.englishforum.ch/forum.php may be useful as well.

    It’s a beautiful area, there must be oodles of trails – hope you find a local to show you around 🙂

    It’s more hilly there but plenty of good riding and uplifts. Pop down the road to Luzern and take on the Bürgenstock. Bikes on trains is very common but get a bike pass as it’s a very officious country.

    Thanks so much for this suggestion! I’m all about mountain biking and off-piste skiing, so this is absolutely perfect. Such a happy coincidence that the organiser is based in Zug.

    Thanks for the suggestion – looks like it’s fairly nearby, so will definitely give it a shot!
