Safety information
«slowUp yourself!» is not an event and does not take place on closed roads, but primarily on cycle paths or side roads. For the most part, the route follows signposted routes of Veloland Schweiz. The route can be cycled in both directions. It is recommended to cycle counter-clockwise. Due to the surface in Schwyz (cobblestones, only short sections), the route is unfortunately only suitable for inline skaters to a limited extent. Please follow the traffic rules. It is recommended to wear a helmet when cycling.

Particular caution is advised on sections on main roads in Brunnen, Ibach SZ, Schwyz and Lauerz and at the main road crossing in Seewen SZ. Recommendation with children: Drive carefully on main roads, let children ride on the pavement if necessary and use the pedestrian crossing a little to the north at the main road crossing in Seewen SZ.

Bicycle, bike, e-bike or inline skates, helmet, appropriate clothes and whatever else you want to bring.
Author’s advice
The route can be started anywhere.
