This really is a road worth driving. Be aware that your clutch may suffer on the way up and your brakes on the way down, but it's all worth it. The only slight drawback are the hoards of cyclists who seem to think they own...More

This is a challenging but do able climb which has much to offer. There are tunnels, views, hairpin sections, long straights, glaciers, the odd old building etc. Very enjoyable.

One of the passes which is a must do on a motorcycle. Lots of hairpin bends, stunning views and a great ride. The only negative was the cycle race which made it extremely busy.

It's everything you read and more. It's never that hard, but 24.5km and 48 switchback of climbing sort of wear you down. Another bucket list ticked off!

Perhaps the most exciting alpine road we've ever been on and we're from Colorado! Motorcyclists, bicyclists and rally drivers know and revere this route well. We found it only by chance. No, our BMW was at home, but Karl drove our rent car and I...More

Rode this pass from the North last June with three mates. We started early in the morning in order to avoid heavy traffic and the cyclists who do this punishing ascent. I was on a Yamaha FJR1300 and it was a sheer delight to ride...More
