Second that recommendation - we spent four weeks camping touring with
the family on two full size tandems. Things you don't really cover are:
The ease of travelling on the trains and boats with bicycles. We never
had any trouble with two tandems and with two young daughters and loaded
tandems plus Bob trailer we tended to take the train over the passes.
We also took them up the side valleys and then coasted back down. If
you join trains, boats and cycling you can cover quite a lot of the
country with the train taking the strain and the train service is superb.
Switzerland is quite flat if you stay in the valleys (and more so if you
take the train over the passes). This is contrary to expectations based
on pictures of a mountainous country.
Glad you enjoyed it
