This week, Jeff Stuart takes us up in the Swiss mountains for a ride.

There are a few lovely scenic routes in this collection, perfect for a recovery after a big session on the trainer.

Be warned though, there’s also a couple of TOUGH climbs that will humble the strongest riders amongst you…

Thanks for this series Jeff.

Zugersee From Zug To Arth ????????

Heitersberg ????????

Starting in the village of Spreitenbach, travel up a little-used, forested road that seems to only get steeper the more you climb. Finish at the farm at the top of Heitersberg and take the opportunity to say hello to the bovine residents.

Pfannenstiel Hochwacht ????????

Grosse Scheidegg From Meiringen ????????

One of the lesser known passes in the region due to the neighboring 2000+-meter giants, Grosse Scheidegg offers a supreme challenge, and even more magnificent views, to all comers. The climb is roughly divided into the three parts, with the first and the last each averaging almost 10% with several spots at over 15% (also the last third is car free save for farmer’s vehicles and the post bus), and the middle third being a false flat that you can use to catch your breath. Soak in the view of the giant mountain peaks and glaciers of the Jungfrau region and save your legs for the final push.

Alpsu From Sedrun Disentis ????????

Also known as Oberalp Pass in German, Alpsu connects Disentis/Sedrun in the East with Andermatt in the West. Starting in the outskirts of Disentis, make your way through a rolling start in the valley, then climb 700 meters at a fairly steady gradient to the top at 2044 meters. Filmed in the morning of Stage 7 of the 2021 Tour de Suisse, you get the benefit of kilometer markers and the occasional fan club, as well as a KOM sign at the top. Keep your eyes peeled for pro-team busses making their way from Andermatt to the start line in Disentis, as well as for a devilish visitor at the end.
