SWISS ALPS

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Escapes -

There is an in­cred­i­ble five-pass loop here that must be rid­den. The Grim­sel, Furka, Neufe­nen, St Got­tard and Susten passes are all – in their very dif­fer­ent ways – equally mind-blow­ingly good. But when you put them all to­gether they create one epic ride. It’s a rel­a­tively fa­mous ride – on top of which, many rid­ers will come and do two or three of the passes on their way some­where else. But this pass­ing trade does mean there are plenty of de­cent cafés, mak­ing this a civilised route with plenty of nice stops. This route, though, is all about the rid­ing than the cof­fee drink­ing – and this is a sin­gle day of moun­tain rid­ing that is al­most im­pos­si­ble to beat.
