Touring the Canton of Vaud on two wheels

With its varied landscape, the region offers possibilities for exploration for visitors of all kinds, from the most hardcore cyclists to those who enjoy a more leisurely pace.

There’s nothing like a good bike ride for getting a different perspective. Supported by an electric battery or powered by leg muscles alone, the bicycle has pride of place on the roads and trails of the region. Thrill seekers will love the steeper slopes of the Alps, while the Jura, with its gentler undulations, is ideal for families and those looking for a less strenuous tour. It will not come as a surprise to hear that the canton is home to the World Cycling Centre in Aigle at the foot of the Alps. The International Cycling Union (UCI) provides facilities for training young talent from all over the world. Open to the public, it also offers introductory sessions run by professionals by reservation.
