Tips

    The Tremola is the historic pass road over the Gotthard. In the most spectacular section the road overcomes a length of four kilometers 300 meters in 24 bends. The cobblestone (pavé) made of granite stones, which is famous for cycling, is largely preserved. The aboslute non plus ultra for passport drivers!

    Great pass road with stunning views. The road winds up in the gorge, great!

    Of course, the absolute "must-have" is the one from the south side through the Val di Tremola. The great road and the historic pavement are almost unique, uphill the pavement is tolerated even on narrow tires. Down sees the matter differently, since the "Valley of the trembling" is very directly experienced! But the north side has its charm and in the last quarter also a section of the old road, which is highly recommended (uphill).

    A classic! Everyone knows this name. But ... you have to "roll" over the 2.5 km paving stones on both sides. Less air in the tire is more here :-)
    If you want to drive the Tremola ... there are another 4 km of pavement! If you expect "Swiss precision" for the pavement, you will probably be disappointed :-)

    In contrast to the Gotthard traffic jam on the A2, the Gotthard Pass is highly recommended, especially from the south across the old road through the Val Tremola, which should not be missing in any racing bike pass list. But the north slope is attractive, but because of the heavy traffic but rather recommended in the early morning hours.
