Toegegeven, het uitzicht is er mooi en het wegdek is super. Maar er is één ding waardoor ik deze zijde van de Simplonpas niet zou aanraden: het verkeer. De Simplonpas is een soort snelweg over de bergen, met een enorm brede weg met grote geleidelijke bochten, waar auto's en motors niks wordt belet om de snelheid er goed in te houden. Als fietser vrij irritant, al heb ik me nooit onveilig gevoeld. Ook: er zijn veel erg lange tunnels die je niet kunt ontwijken. Soms zit je honderden meters te zwoegen in een betonnen constructie terwijl het verkeer langs je raast; niet de beste Zwitserse wielrennersberg dus.

Er is aan deze zijde geen alternatieve weg (behalve eventjes bij Simplon Dorf), maar aan de andere zijde wel. Als je dus kunt kiezen, beklim de Simplonpas dan vanuit Brig. Deze beklimming als afdaling lijkt me namelijk super: lekker snel en mooi.
