Cycling Weekly Granfondo Gottardo Review

Hannah Reynolds, the Fitness Editor for Cycling Weekly, stayed with Brevet in 2012 using the Swiss Alps as a training base before taking on the triple  challenge of climbing the Passo San Gottardo (2,106m), Passo Furka (2,429m) and Passo Nufenen (2,478m) in the Granfondo San Gottardo.

[quote]By the time you start the final climb of the Nufenen your legs are already feeling it, which is unfortunate as this is the highest of the lot! The dramatic view at 2,478m is good compensation for the effort and the descent is even greater reward.[/quote]

Take on the challenge of doing something different;
