Zurich, May 11-14, 2023

the national bicycle festival

The CYCLE WEEK is the epicenter of cycling Switzerland. From May 11 to 14, 2023, cyclists, athletes and fans, the cycling and tourism industry and politics will meet in the heart of Zurich for the country's largest cycling festival. For the public spectacle, the city of Zurich will make the triangle Europaallee - Lagerstrasse - Kasernenstrasse and the Brunau available to the organizers. At Switzerland's most central transportation hub, Zurich's main train station, thousands of bicycle enthusiasts meet to kick off the cycling season. They discover the latest products and offers from the world of bicycles, test the bike of their dreams, expand their knowledge of design and technology, draw inspiration in the Expo and at workshops, admire daring freestyle artists and follow MTB-XC World Cup races at the public viewing on the big screen. Even those who can't be there will be served by the CYCLE WEEK Channel with talks, news and live broadcasts. The national bike festival offers everything the bike heart desires - whether live or digital.

Cycle Week 2022
From May 12 to 15, 2022, 75,000 visitors, cyclists, athletes, passers-by and fans, the cycling and tourism industry and politicians met in beautiful early summer weather for the largest cycling festival in Switzerland. OC President Erwin Flury says: "The CYCLE WEEK has developed strongly compared to the first edition last summer. The Expo has grown by 40% and thanks to the varied program we were able to address dedicated bikers as well as many new people and convey the fascination of bicycles."
We would like to thank from the bottom of our hearts all visitors, exhibitors, partners, sponsors and the crew for their trust, commitment and exchange. It was great to celebrate the Velo together with you and to see the many beaming faces, thank you!
