There is still a lot of snow on the Alps, but the spring has arrived, and this you can feel of the heating sun. Mountainroads are free of snow and the temperature is climbing up to 20!!!
So if you are still heading for skiing… take your roadbike with, here comes some good climbs for you:
There is the Maloja pas in Switzerland, which data and profile you see above. The road goes from Chiavenna in Italy against St Moritz in Switzerland, and there is the Maloja climb in between. 15 km from St Moritz, so if you are heading there for skiing, why not to push the pedals also a bit Nice climb where the last 4-6km are really work, else a wide valley, where you can enjoy beautiful sceneries.
Another interesting climb can be the one going up to Cervinia. This is actually one of the Giro d’Italia stages this year in May, check here:
From the village of Chatillion down in Aosta valley starts the 27km climb to Cervinia, profile is quite intresting:
Wauh, again a good session, when pushing myself up o the mountain. Starting from +20 degrees, and ending up to around 0… Enjoyable… Maybe you can call it “winter cycling”
So remember you bike next time when you head for a ski holiday
