Start: Meiringen, Swiss Alps, Switzerland

Starting in Meiringen, the ride climbs out of town and then down to Innertkirchen where, for the next 26 kilometers, you will facing a positive gradient. As you ride up the valley you are surrounded by large rocky outcrops which was spectacularly different from the other parts of Switzerland we have ridden in. After cycling up the valley, a series of switchbacks take you to the Raterichsbodensee reservoir and a second series of switchbacks bring you to the col. The climb itself was tough as there were numerous switchbacks and with each turn there was change in the gradient, never allowing you to gain any rhythm.  The ride is an out and back so after reaching the col, there is the 26km descent to Innertkirchen before the small rise to get you back to Meiringen.
