The first 20 kilometres are hilly and easy to do. From the tunnel, which you are not allowed to enter as a bike, it really starts: it doesn't go below 6% and especially the part next to the tunnel I found very tricky: it doesn't seem too bad, but it is steep and you can easily reach 12%.

After the tunnel, it is flat for a while until the hairpins begin. From there, it is a beautiful ride, views back over the valley and about 10 hairpins until you reach the junction towards Lech. Don't be surprised though: those last few kilometres are still far from flat.

The tarmac is generally in excellent condition and the road is not really busy because the through traffic takes the tunnel.

Probably many people choose the Silvretta Hochalpstrasse, which with a diversion also goes from say Bludenz to Landeck, but this is a nice alternative if you want to ride a less challenging alpine col.

De eerste 20 kilometer zijn glooiend en goed te doen. Vanaf de tunnel waar je als fiets niet in mag begint ie eigenlijk echt: onder de 6% komt het niet vaak meer en vooral het stuk naast de tunnel vond ik erg lastig: het lijkt best mee te vallen, maar het is het hele stuk steil en je tikt er rustig op punten de 12% aan.

Na de tunnel is het even vlak tot de haarspelden beginnen. Vanaf dat punt is het schitterend rijden, uitzichten terug over de vallei en ca 10 haarspelden tot je bij de kruising richting Lech bent. Laat je echter niet verrassen: die laatste paar kilometer zijn nog steeds bepaald niet vlak.

Het asfalt is over het algemeen in uitstekende staat en de weg is doordat het doorgaande verkeer de tunnel neemt niet echt druk.

Waarschijnlijk kiezen velen de Silvretta Hochalpstrasse die met een omweg ook van pakweg Bludenz naar Landeck gaat, maar dit is een mooi alternatief als je een wat minder pittige alpencol wilt rijden.

Nice to have done but only feels like a serious col from Stuben. There you go into the hairpin bends where you get beautiful views in return. The piece to the top is also beautiful. Asphalt was soon. Traffic, not too busy. I was there in 2012.

Leuk om gedaan te hebben maar voelt pas als een serieuze col vanaf Stuben. Daar ga je de haarspeldbochten in waar je mooie vergezichten voor terug krijgt. Het stuk tot de top is ook fraai. Asfalt was straks. Verkeer, niet te druk. Ik was er in 2012.
