In early September I will be leaving the UK and moving to Switzerland. I got a fantastic job offer, and the chance to live in Switzerland is too good an opportunity to refuse. I have managed to find an apartment 3 minutes walk from lake Zugersee and contacted the Tri Club in Zug. Looking forward to cycling up some proper mountains now. At some point I may need to tell my wife that I need a new road bike with disc brakes.

Would love to hear from any Zug or Zurich based triathletes

That is an excellent idea, Zug is less than an hour away. I arrive in Switzerland late on the 2nd, so hope I can make it there

Lucky sod.

I lived near Geneva for several years and absolutely loved it. In fact, that's where I got into tri for the first time (Nyon and Geneva). Certainly in the French end, the Swiss seem to be mad on cycling. Roads are full of cyclists, lots of clubs (high standard though) and drivers are really considerate.

Roads are really good and the mountains will certainly get you 'race-ready' for anything.

Swimming in Lake Geneva for lunchtime training sessions was blissful.

A really great quality of life - the Swiss are nice but take a little getting used to (in the nicest possible way). Don't break the law, and certainly don't speed in your car! I'd move back out there in a heartbeat.

I'm very envious... enjoy.
