Arrival

Bus und Tram vor Flughafen Zürich

Arrival

An international airport, excellent train connections from abroad and public transport that is second to none make travelling to Zurich and visiting the starting towns of Winterthur, Uster and Gossau ZH easier.

Welcome to the host region of the 2024 UCI Road and Para-cycling Road World Championships!

Public transport

Watch the start of the Men Elite race in Winterthur and be at Sechseläutenplatz when the riders take to the City Circuit for the first time? Of course: the best connections can be found in the Zurich Transport Network ZVV timetable or the ZVV app.

PS: You can get from Winterthur to Sechseläutenplatz so quickly by train that you’ll easily have enough time for a veal sausage and a beer before the riders will cross the finish line for the first time.

By bike

Get to the 2024 UCI Road and Para-cycling Road World Championships in style – by bike. You can park your it in one of the three secure and free bike parks powered by ABUS, which will be set up in the fan zones.

Or in keeping with the motto Together We Park & Bike: park your car in the AMAG Messe Zürich car park and then enjoy a relaxed ride into the city centre on a PubliBike with a 50 percent discount on the regular rental fee.

As part of our accompanying measures, we are also planning special routes that lead to the UCI World Championships by bike from all directions.

Fan zones

Various fan zones (see map) with large screens along the City Circuit, which will be cycled several times, offer an attractive entertainment programme for cycling fans and all other spectators.

On Sechseläutenplatz there will be finish line action, the winners will be honoured and there will be great entertainment with presentations, talks and lots of music.

Various exhibitors will be showcasing science and the latest bicycle-related achievements at the Velo Expo on Bürkliplatz.

At the General Guisan Quai, there will also be a fan zone with stands and a great view of Lake Zurich.

The Limmatquai is a cosy place to linger. A wide range of restaurant options awaits visitors there.

Drinks and food are also available on the Münsterhof, as in all fan zones.  This is where all the riders whizz past when the action is hotting up on the City Circuit.

Food and Beverages

Nobody has to worry about getting hungry or thirsty. Drinks and refreshments will be available at numerous stands in the fan zones and along the routes.

The wide range of Feldschlösschen beverages with and without alcohol will be available on tap at the beverage stations in all fan zones as well as at other beverage stands, such as the iconic Open Racecourse in Oerlikon. As part of the agreement, Feldschlösschen will serve Pepsi, mineral water and other drinks in addition to beer with and without alcohol. A special attraction will be the attractive Feldschlösschen Lodge, with which Feldschlösschen will be present in one of the fan zones.

Rivella, which provides refreshing moments and the unmistakable attitude to life of active Switzerland like no other, will be present at the global cycling festival next September with its Focuswater brand.

Access without barriers

People with disabilities (and their accompanying persons) should be able to experience the UCI Road and Para-cycling Road World Championships as easily and barrier-free as possible.

If you want to know whether a restaurant, another building or railway stations and stops are accessible for guests with disabilities, you can find the relevant information on Sitios or with the help of the Ginto app.

People with disabilities also receive valuable information about rail transport via the SBB Inclusive app.

Zurich 2024 will have so-called “hosted areas”. Thanks to a simple modular system with seating blocks, seats for people with disabilities will be arranged according to their needs. Such sectors are also planned in the catering area, in front of the stage where the medals are presented and in the fan zones.

Follow

The races of the 2024 UCI Road and Para-cycling Road World Championships can be followed free of charge directly from numerous great locations. Tickets are only required for the finish area on Sechseläutenplatz, which will go on sale from 15 May.

Here are a few places that are particularly suitable for watching in terms of accessibility:

City Circuit

On the City Circuit, we will see the cycling cracks pass by everywhere several times. Around the finish area, in front of the Stadthaus, along the Limmatquai or the Seilergraben, the races can be followed from the front row.

At the Kunsthaus Zurich, the route climbs steeply uphill. This section of the route with a 10 % gradient, which is also used by various para-cyclist classes, could provide for preliminary decisions.

The “Schlyfi” (“loop”) is a 180° bend on a longer uphill section of the route to Witikon. Action should also be guaranteed there.

The Zollikon ramp leads into Bellerivestrasse, the long finishing straight towards Sechseläutenplatz. The place to get into position for a mass sprint.

 

Lakeside Circuit

On the Lakeside Circuit, para-cyclists in various categories and strength classes take centre stage. The course first leads to Kreuzplatz and then to Zollikon. Shortly after the municipal border, the athletes turn round and ride back via the Zolliker Rampe on Bellerivestrasse towards the finish at Sechseläutenplatz. If the circuit is cycled several times, the athletes turn back onto Kreuzstrasse around 400 metres before the finish.

 

Oerlikon open racecourse

The iconic Open Racecourse in Oerlikon is the cycling temple par excellence in Zurich. Built in 1912, it is the oldest open-air arena still in use in Switzerland and is the venue for numerous cycling events in the summer months. At the UCI World Championships, the Men Elite will start their time trials there. If you want to get a taste of the unrivalled cycling atmosphere, take tram 11 from the main railway station on the first Sunday of the World Championships and get there in less than 20 minutes.

 

Time trials

Why not take a trip to Gossau in the Zurich Oberland and watch the start of the women’s elite time trials and various para-cycling classes? Or enjoy the view of the lake along the lakeside road and cheer on the riders as they race against the clock.

 

Women Elite, Men U-23 and Juniors Road Races

The starting point of Uster is easy to reach by public transport. The town in the Zurich Oberland is idyllically situated on Lake Greifensee and invites you to linger. The elite women, the men U-23 and the juniors start their hunt for gold and the rainbow jersey from Uster.

 

Men Elite Road Race

A visit to Winterthur or Kyburg Castle is well worthwhile. After the peloton will have passed through this city again, hop on the S-Bahn to Zurich-Stadelhofen and wait their for the riders to reach the Sechseläutenplatz.
