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 the 22nd and 23rd of September 2018 the "FreiPass Klausen Pragel" starts.From the Schwyzer side, the ascent to the Klausenpass leads through the enchanting Schächental with its imposing view of the Stäubifall. Ortstock, Gemfairenstock and Clariden form an impressive backdrop from the Glarner side.The Pragel is the little brother of the Klausenpass and parallell runs from Schwyz through the Muotatal to Klöntal into Glarus. Together, the two passes make a nice but challenging round trip.Although the Pragelpass is less high, but steeper. From the Schwyzer side you can climb up to 18 percent. Also, the downhills on both sides have it all and you're almost constantly pulling the brake.Both sides are scenically attractive: on the Schwyzer side the wild-moral Muota valley and the wild rugged mountain valley of the Starzlenbach. On the Glarner side the imposing walls of the Silberen and the Glärnisch and the fjord-like Klöntalersee, one of the most beautiful lakes in Switzerland.All information about racing cycling in Switzerland can be found here: myswitzerland.com/de-de/rennrad.html
