Stages - Overview
My plan is to ride every fully paved pass (as defined by swisstopo) in Switzerland within 30 days. There are 124 passes. I will start in Nyon, Vaud and will finish in Bern, my home town after riding the last pass Gurnigel. I plan on 26 stages with 4 extra days, just in case.
I tried to connect the passes but some (like Sieblingerhöhe in Schaffhausen) are far away from the other passes that I will drive to the start of the pass. The detailed routes will be published soon but this is the overview of the stages. I am inviting everyone to join me on a few kilometers, a stage or multiple stages (I just need to ride my pace).
Distance is in kilometer. Elevation gain in meter. All stages are subject to change.
All 124 Passes
The publication of all individual stages plus time and routes will follow soon.
