MTB Tour from Airolo to lago Ritom, Passo del Sole and down to Biasca
Basecamp Andermatt goes mountainbiking.
Sunny weather on the southside of the Alps is a good reason to take the 30min drive to Airolo from Basecamp Andermatt. Over the Gothard pass and away from the trafficjam in the tunnel.
The route of the day was:
At an elevation of 1043m is the starting point. You follow the swiss trail number 65. Its all road and gravelroad up to the lake. Riding time about 2 Hours to the Lake
Lago di Ritom
elev 1850m. If you are lazy, you can take a Cablecar up to 1700m and save some energy for the downhill. The lake is a nice place for swim or visit one of the Lodges here for some food or drinks. From here its about 1 hour to the pass
Passo del Sole
elev 2350m is the highest point of this tour. Its a great landscape with grassy highland moor type of vegetation. From here its about 2000m Vertical downhill to Biasca. There are several options depending of your riding preferences and skils.
Take the train back to Airolo.
You can do this ride also without a car. Just ride up the gothard and down to Airolo. On the way back stay in the train until Göschenen and take the MGB up to Andermatt.
Or be hardcore and dont use any mechanical help;-)
Its about 65km riding and 1600m Vertical if you start from Airolo and end up in Biasca.
