DebConf->CERN 107km: to put it in context, for a serious cyclist that
would be a good Sunday morning ride, but it is not for everybody.

Most of the lakes in Switzerland provide a good opportunity for a long
ride (2-3 hours), especially if you go clockwise around the lake to
minimise the number of road junctions where you might have to stop. 
Lake Neuchatel looks like a 90km loop.  Lake Zurich clockwise is very
popular with cyclists, it is about 60km around.

For a relaxed ride, the same type of journey would probably take all day
with little stops along the way but it would be quite enjoyable. 
Organising a group bike rental would be a nice day trip option and a
nice outdoor complement to the CERN option.
