Switzerland Cycling Summer 2023 – 1st to 15th July (last night stay)
Expert led Cycling Holidays and Training Camps in Switzerland
Based at the cycling friendly 4-star Everness Hotel in Chavannes-de-Bogis, just 20 minutes outside Geneva in the stunning ‘Romandie’ region of Switzerland. Our location provides easy access to a wide variety of routes on both sides of the Swiss/French border including iconic climbs, rolling vineyards and flatter lake rides featured in both the Tour of Romandie and Tour de France. Our qualified cycling coaches and experienced ride leaders know intimately this diverse and sometimes challenging terrain, including the best riding roads and country lanes in the region to make the most of your SunVelo swiss cycling experience.
One week of expert led group riding including accommodation, half board, airport transfers and/or car parking (if required) from £1,250 per person (less than £180 per night)*.
* Excluding Bike Rental
The scheduled change over day is Saturday where riders can choose a self-guided route, however you are welcome to arrive and depart any day you like; some find Wednesday a good day to travel at a time when mid-week flight prices are less expensive than weekends.
Road Cycling Holidays in Switzerland
- Cycling in Switzerland with SunVelo provides the opportunity to ride in groups led by qualified cycling coaches and experienced group leaders.

- Cycling in Switzerland provides the ideal cycling holiday or training camp destination.
- At SunVelo everyone is an equal part and contributor to their own mini team on the road.
- We pride ourselves on the extent of knowledge all members of the ride leading team have of the Swiss (and French) roads and country lanes.
- As well as iconic climbs featured in both the Tour of Romandie and Tour de France, we will take you off the beaten track on some of the best riding roads and country lanes that are seldom used (or even known) by most visitors to the region.
