Start: Sion, Valais, Switzerland
This ride, although short, is a fantastic ride. It starts in the village of Sion and shortly starts weaving through picturesque vineyards. Just before you pass through the small village of Chandolin, there is a slight downhill before you continue climbing. The ride offers fantastic views of the surrounding countryside and mountains. A huge advantage of this climb is that, for motor vehicles, it is a road to nowhere. Subsequently, there is minimal traffic to contend with.
As you continue towards Col du Sanetsch, you have a true alpine experience which is nothing short of amazing. Though, it is seriously tough with much of the gradient above 7 percent.
Much of the return leg follows the route just ridden. You could in fact, follow the same route all the way to the start, though this ride turns off to pass through Premploz and some other small villages before returning to Sion
