Not sure where to visit this week on FulGaz?

Check out this fantastic collection from first time contributor Philipp Mühlemann. 

For those of you who love the hills, there’s a great selection, but if you’re after something flatter and ideal for some sightseeing, then check out Lake Murten Loop.

Enjoy!

Chasseral From Le Landeron

Located in the triangle between Neuchâtel, La Chaux-de-Fonds and Biel/Bienne, the summit of the Chasseral is both the high point and centre of the nature park Chasseral. To reach the summit and enjoy the view, you have to climb 1150 meters in altitude with an average gradient of 6.4%.

Gurnigel From Zollhaus

A sunny afternoon ride from Zollhaus to Gurnigel. The Gantrisch landscape reserve provides the delightful context for the Gurnigel, a pass popular with local cyclists. The summit of the Gurnigel (alt. 1609m) is reached after 16km after tackling a gradient averaging 5%. This does not tell the whole story: the ascent actually comprises a number of level sections interspersed with steeper ones.

Lake Murten Loop

Morning trip around Lake Murten, the smallest of the three lakes on the periphery of the Jura. The flat route leads first through the small medieval town of Murten and then along the vineyards on Mont Vully. Several segments will make this a good time-trial experience!

Sanetsch From Conthey

At 25km in length and with a difference in altitude of 1770m, the pass road could be compared to the famous Stelvio, but with less traffic. The ascent starts in the Rhone valley and meanders through the vineyards before reaching woodland and a series of hairpin bends which lead to pastures and the summit (alt. 2252m) near the Tsanfleuron glacier. The road stops at Sanetsch Lake, a few kilometres on from the summit.
