A perfect day riding in the Swiss Alps

A perfect day riding in the Swiss Alps

Atop Nufenen Pass

My Swiss friend took me for a days ride

A beautiful day with the sun shining, 9 high mountain passes and 430km covered

I was buzzing at the end

Ice flow on Furka

There is the right way! Ascend the mountain on the side with the tightest corners and descend where the corners are not so tight.

Why?

Its more challenging that way!

Then you must do your favourite pass twice.

Looking at Grimsel Pass from Furka
Looking over Glestch to Furka Pass from Grimsel

There was still lots of ice flows remaining from winter.

Then there is a stop at a mountain top restaurant for lunch

Goulash soup my fave at the top of Nufenen

And the view

And of course the amazing Alpine transport system

Fast trains

And luxury coaches

San Gotthard to Airola coach runs up and down San Gotthard pass

Just a perfect days riding

  1. Looks beautiful Mic! Can’t believe there’s still ice/snow around. Imagine what it’s like in Winter!
