This is one loop I've wanted to take for several years but weather, time, fitness, etc. never quite allowed for it. I finally pulled it off. Having lived here (Switzerland) for 17 yrs. and cycled the Swiss Alps, this is one of the most beautiful areas of Switzerland not often visited.
I don't expect to tackle 7 Alpine passes in one day again! - A bit too much for my comfort/fitness zone as I am no longer a "spring chicken" at 40.
One day ride: Swiss & Italian National park region
Umbrailpass - passo del Stelvio - passo del Foscogno - passo del Eire - passo del Livigno - Berninapass - Ofenpass - July 2003
