The Grosse Scheidegg
Arguably the most scenic cycling pass in the Alps
DISTANCE: 80km, Clockwise Loop
TIP: While tempting to look heroic on Strava, you’ll regret not stopping for the views of what is certainly one of the most stunning road rides in the world. At the very least, sit in the sun for a few minutes on the Grosse Scheidegg pass itself and soak in what you are amongst.

Cyclists all imagine the perfect climb; narrow, car free, good pavement, and huge views. This is it.
