A. and the highest unvergletscherte transition between Reschenpass and Brenner Pass.

    The tour is just gigantic. Today 01 August in the valley warm summer and above from the toll booth a cold violent headwind. And the many vegetation levels through which you cycle. Down the tourists along the way, like me, and up sheep and cows ...
    I'll tell a secret! I went with a Haibike with electric motor (Pedelek). But with 72 years to be able to experience something like that. A wonder. Thanks to Komot for the safe navigation

    With regard to the assessment of the scenic beauty, I fully agree with @Dieter Michael T. The South Tyrolean side is much more attractive and can also offer more vertical meters in the main climb (starting heights: St. Leonhard: 675 m, Sölden: 1350m). If the pass is exceeded, you can fully enjoy the much better route on the Austrian side and protect the brakes.
    There are two long tunnels on the Italian side to be prepared for.

    The driveway of St. Leonhard is part of the legendary Ötztaler Radmarathon.

    It is an experience, simply beautiful. I started with the racing bike from St. Leonhard and will do it again; it is wonderful a unique experience that must not be unique; because it is always beautiful and predestined for repetition 🙂🚴🏼‍♂️.
    Also definitely take a wind and rain jacket with you, the jacket could also be warm 😊.
    I would also like to say that it is more beautiful on the Italian side, since the south side and the view are more breathtaking. If you like, the South Tyrol is also reflected with its wonderful ambience.
    On the Austrian side you drive through a lot of forest, it is also cooler because the north side.

    The Timmelsjoch is worth a visit simply because of its height. The South Tyrolean side is more beautiful and demanding, but the descent down to the Ötztal is rapid and thanks to the better condition it can be run quite well here.

    The most beautiful is the crossing to the daytime-border times in the morning and in the evening. Then you have the fewest mopeds around you.
    And - always have warm clothes with you!

    The ascent from Sōlden is very pretty and tended, the hardness is in its final kilometers past the toll and the motor museum. Super recommended ❤️

    Everything meets here: motorsport fans (many vintage cars, even more motorcycles, normal motorists) as well as calf kicks (racing cyclists) and e-bikers ... For some, the view may just count, for others, the pride in their own performance, for some in addition, the knowledge of standing on a historical, more connecting than dividing pass on the main Alpine ridge and finally on a structural masterpiece of the 50s and 60s of the last century.

    the other way, of course, just as well; but then in fine weather only early or late, so it does not get too hot on the rise on the sunny side.

    Attention the pass is closed from 20h to 7h. That closed the gate in front of the tunnel on the south side, so no more get through. And there is no surrounding around it without climbing.

    Great and long driveway - take warm clothes, can snow in the summer - but we were lucky with sun and blue sky.
