Swiss roads are famous for leading you through breathtaking mountain landscapes and over mythical Alpine passes. And the "Coop Ride the Alps" event offers some of the best Swiss cycling possible, with numerous roads and passes being reserved exclusively for cyclists on selected dates.

The Coop Ride the Alps event consists is a 10-day cycling celebration spread over the summer season. On each of these days, a selected route belongs entirely to cyclists. The tracks are closed to cars, allowing you to properly enjoy this beautiful mountain world in its original tranquillity together with many like-minded people. And there is something for everyone: Some events, such as the "Unicef - Cycling for Children" offer a more relaxed experience, which is just right for enjoying the Swiss Alps with the whole family. On other days, you'll find ample opportunity to test your mettle: Compete in the "Granfondo San Gottardo" or the "Chasing Cancellara", and go up against cycling pro Fabian Cancellara. At the "Challenge Davos Festival," the whole city is completely dedicated to cycling.

Whatever you choose, you are guaranteed to get your money's worth.

By the way: You can also enjoy cycling in the Swiss Alps outside of this event series. Information about routes, cities, accommodations—as well as innumerable tips—can be found here: myswitzerland.com/de-de/rennrad.html
