E-mountain bikes in Switzerland

Tours with an e-mountain bike

The tourism organisations had these routes registered specifically as e-mountain bike routes. Technically, they are not too difficult, no passages where the bike has to be carried, short sections where it needs to be pushed, and doable with one battery charge (max. 1000–1200 m altitude difference).
