Cycling events

slowUp

slowUps are motorized-traffic-free experience days organized by SwitzerlandMobility. and promote the pleasure of exercise with cycling and skating. For these events, some 30 km of roads in an attractive landscape are closed to motorized traffic for a day. A varied fringe programme along the route ensures a festive mood for young and old, groups and families, pleasure seekers and action addicts, couples in love and lonely hearts.

The slowUp idea has resulted in a series of national events, one of the largest in terms of the number of active participants. Some 500,000 people take part every year.
