Cycling

On the road on two wheels
You do not need to pass a test or have a special permit to ride a bicycle in Switzerland. In general, cyclists must observe the same traffic rules as motorists. If special bicycle lanes or tracks are available, they must be used. The bike must be roadworthy (two good brakes; a bell; front, rear and pedal reflectors; front and rear lights). There is no obligation to wear a helmet, but it is recommended you do so. Cyclists should in any case take out personal liability insurance, as they are liable for any damage they cause to persons or objects.

Bicycle transport

If you want to take a bicycle with you on the train or bus, you need a special ticket. It is not always possible to take a bicycle with you. In some cases, you will need to reserve a space for it on the train.
