as of 2009, I follow these forums fairly frequently:

 

roadbikereview.com forums

 

more forums

  • pistehors.com Hike + Bike -- can ask questions there for France and southwest Switzerland, especially around the Alps. I check it like weekly (as of 2009).

  • EnglishForum.ch sports/fitness -- more for English-speaking residents of Switzerland than visitors or cyclotourists. I check it mostly only when I'm especially interested in Switzerland (as of 2009).

 

rec.bicycles.rides (Usenet newsgroup)

Not much action on this any more (as of 2009), but the archives have lots of interesting stuff, and there's likely still some smart people listening for new questions.
