In Augustus 2019 deze rondrit met 3 toppen van + 2000 m gefietst.
Startte in Ulrichen omdat ik daar verbleef.
Eerste klim was de zware Nufenenpas gevolgd door lange recuperatieafdaling (23 km) tot Airolo.
Hier begint dan de prachtige oude Gotthardpas (Tremola) die via haarspeldbochten in kassei naar omhoog kronkelt.
Afdaling kan een deel verkeersarm maar over de oude Tremolakasseien.
Stuk van Hospental tot Realp is rechtdoor en vlak maar de wind kan hier spelbreker zijn.
Furkapas had ik wat onderschat want hij kon als 3 de klim wel tellen.
Na afdaling tot Oberwald kan men verkeersvrij op fietspad langs de rivier naar voet Nufenen of in mijn geval naar het eindpunt.
Er zijn op gehele route voldoende punten om je te bevoorraden aan drank en voeding.
(Gegevens fietscomputer 6u31' over 103 km met gemiddelde 15.7km/u)

Kan voor mij gerust doorgaan als de Zwitserse evenknie van de Italiaanse Sella ronde.
Wondermooie gevarieerde hooggebergte toer!!!!
