Cycle the Swiss Alps in Style with the Ecyclingstore World Jersey’s Switzerland Cycling Jersey. Switzerland is world-renowned for scenic cycling routes, and cyclists flock from thousands of miles (sorry, kilometers) around to ride in this alpine paradise. From the Matterhorn to the Monte Rosa, Rhone Glacier Route to trail rides along the River Rhine, Switzerland features some of Europe’s most breathtaking and enthralling terrain for cyclists to experience.
The Rhone Glacier is a major aspect of the alpine scenery of Switzerland, reaching an altitude of 2272 meters before flowing into a steep valley. This icy precipice is a prelude to full Rhone Route, which takes intrepid
cyclists along a flat path, perfect for families and casual riders with a full 8 days worth of travel and 3-star hotels along the way. Starting in Oberwald, a 49km (30.5 mile) ride will take you to Brig, passing through a panorama of mountaintops and flowering fields. From Brig you will ride 63km (39 miles) to Sion along the banks of the Rhone river (named after the glacier that feeds into it) passing by fruit plantations, vineyards, and finally spending the night in Sion before continuing along the next leg of the journey. Leaving Sion, you will head along the lower Rhone valley to Martigny, a 32km (20 mile) ride through high-alpine forests and more of Switzerland’s orchards, in what could be called “wine country.” From Martigny, the next day you will travel 43km (26 miles) to Chexbres, marking just about the halfway point. This part of the route features the beautiful Lake Geneva, the villages of Lavaux, famous for their wines, and Castle Chillon at Montreux, all famous landmarks to witness on your cycling adventure. From Chexbres, a 48km (30 mile) ride will bring you to Morges, through the vineyards of Lavaux, a renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site- places of special cultural importance. After Morges is the home stretch, a 57km (35.5 mile) ride to Geneval, Switzerland’s second most populous city and an absolute site to see for tourists and travelers alike!
The entire Rhone Route stretches 292km (181 miles) over 6 days or so- a lengthy ride for any cyclist!
