Col du Sanetsch

Col du Sanetsch Cycling in Switzerland

Col du Sanetsch 2,242

Riding the Col du Sanetsch is a unique cycling experience. It’s the longest climb you’ll ever ride where you don’t get the reward of descending by bike. The Col du Sanetsch is the original road to nowhere – a very beautiful and awe inspiring nowhere from which we descend by cable car to take on just one more climb before celebrating the ride of your life with ice cold beers on our hotel terrace.

Featured in Peloton Magazine by Ashley and Gered Gruber, you can climb the Col du Sanetsch with Brevet on our Gruyère Cycling Tour sportive holiday as one of three rides we undertake to warm up for this classic Swiss sportive.

The views opened wide and ushered us into the heavens. This is what we had heard about – the upper section of the climb that makes it unforgettable. The mountains formed a wall around us in every direction. We rode through a great amphitheater of rock, with blooming mountain wildflowers providing the song to the mountains’ quiet.
