Leave the road bike at home as these hairpins are 100% cobble-stone heaven.
Browsing: Swiss Alps
Today I saw more waterfalls, glaciers, hairpins, and tunnels than I have ever seen in a single day.
A simple there and back route, up the scenic but not too difficult Col des Montets and Col de la Forclaz.
I had hoped to cycle up the Jaunpass during the Tour de Romandie a couple of weeks ago, but the climb was canceled due to snow(!) up high.
Another great climb up to an Alpine hydro-electric dam/lake.
26.6 kilometres and 1680 metres (5500 feet) of ascent – this is a gigantic and beautiful ride well worth the visit.
One of the best rides from Chamonix. And getting above 2200 metres (over 7200 feet) meant it was full winter gear.
Today, Barry, Martin, Fabian Cancellara and I rode the Gruyère Cycling Tour.
A pretty epic day!
There are loads of truly great climbs in central Switzerland which I have yet to explore. But today I rode two of the highest – amazing.
