....

In another accident in the Swiss Alps, a 29-year-old Russian man died while mountain biking on Mount Pilatus in the canton of Nidwalden on Saturday night.

Cantonal police said the man was with another Russian tourist who had hoped to catch the Pilatusbahn mountain train down to Alpnachstad after starting a bike tour from Eigenthal.

But when they realized the train had stopped operating they changed plans and decided to descend on the Nauen trail.

The victim cycled over a cliff shortly before 8.36pm when Nidwalden police were informed of the accident, which is under investigation.
