Road Cycling Highlight
MySwitzerland planned a road ride.
February 9, 2018
Swiss roads lead through breathtaking mountain landscapes and over mythical Alpine passes. The event series "Coop Ride the Alps" (ridethealps.ch) offers a first class cycling experience: on selected dates, pass roads are reserved exclusively for cyclists. On July 22, 2018 starts the "Granfondo San Gottardo".For 50 years, stagecoaches clattered over the world-famous Tremola. While their traffic significance is dwindling, their historical value is increasing. In the most spectacular section the road overcomes a length of four kilometers 300 meters in 24 bends.Today, the listed pass road over the Gotthard is largely in the state of 1951: The cobblestone (pavé) made of granite stones, which is notorious for cycling, is largely preserved, as are the milestones. The road is partly bounded by up to eight meters high dry stone walls and supported.The absolute non plus ultra for passport drivers!All information about racing cycling in Switzerland can be found here: myswitzerland.com/de-de/rennrad.html
