Day 16 – Over the Gotthard pass to Altdorf

Day 16 – Over the Gotthard pass to Altdorf

A good morning to do the climb of the Gotthard pass. It started not too steep through a few tiny villages where I could still buy some sweets for the upcoming ride. Then a sign showed the final approach of 900m climb for the next 12km. 

It started alright, then the road changed to the old cobble stones. It was around 4h and endless turns in the hot sun later that I arrived. I was quite overwhelmed ☺

The afternoon was just a few hours rolling down with a strong headwind so I didn’t have to break a lot) 

All in all a great day with amazing scenery of 3000m mountains next to the road. 

Camera photos may come later)
