A stunning road cycling holiday in Switzerland, simply one of the most beautiful countries in the world with some of the best cycling to match!
With 60% of its territory spread over the Alps and another 10% in the Jura, Switzerland is a mountain paradise and when the snow melts and the ski season ends the Swiss get on their bikes. Our new “Tour de Suisse” is our answer to those of you who’ve already taken on our other Mountain Road Cycling Challenges and have been asking for something new.
This tour is longer, and we think tougher, than our other mountain tours and we believe it will appeal to riders who really like to challenge themselves. After arrival in Milan, Italy, we transfer over the border into Switzerland to spend our first evening in Bellinzona, a city famous for its three castles, situated a few miles north of the beautiful Lago di Lugano.
It is from here that we begin our ride and it is not exactly a gentle begining to the tour. We take on the Gotthard Pass which takes us to 2131 metres, the first of eight occasions during our tour when we exceed 2000 metres.
After a week on the bikes we reach, quite literally, a real high point of the tour as we tackle the infamous Stelvio. Whilst not the first time we’ve featured the Stelvio in our tours it is the first time we’ve approached it from the “classic” side. Riding out from Prato dello Stelvio we have to negotiate the 48 hairpin bends for which the mountain has become so well known and feared amongst cyclists. Topping out at 2763 metres the Stelvio is the highest pass of the tour but that doesn’t mean it’s all downhill from here.
Three more superb and challenging days of riding complete our circuit and the trip of a lifetime as we arrive back in Bellinzona where it all began.
This trip is supported rather than fully guided meaning riders will be backed up by a support vehicle rather than a riding guiding.
