E+L Sunday Tours 2013
expats and locals guided bike tours
During the summer months IG MTBZUG is organizing a series of guided mountain bike tours for canton Zug mountain bike riders. The tours, open to all members of the mountain biking community, expats or locals, are designed to show off the wide variety of mountain biking possibilities on and around the Zugerberg, the Aegerital and surrounding locations.
Every Sunday, starting at 09:30, a tour will start in Zug, Baar or Aegeri - depending on the destination.
Each tour will last between 2- 3 hrs and will feature a climb of approximately 600 vertical meters followed by the discovery of a wide range of forest roads and trails. The distance covered on each tour will vary between 15 – 30 km. Each tour will finish around midday at a location in either Zug or Aegeri.
Before we reach the trailhead there will be an opportunity to refill water bottles and get a coffee before beginning the descent. All participants should carry what they need for a ride, such as water, a jacket, spare tubes and pump etc.
