Many cycle tours provide fitted bicycles during tours of Switzerland.
View the Swiss Alps, have lunch beside a pristine lake and meet local villagers while sampling wine and cheese in Switzerland. Guided bike tours in Switzerland generally travel next to rivers and lakes with stops on hilltops to view villages and mountains. Most bike tours provide bicycles fitted to each cyclist and some tours even allow you to bring your own bicycle.
