Winter riding in the Alps

Switchback: The Alps Road & Gravel Biking Guide

The Alps are a giant playground for cyclists in summer. And in winter? Less so, but you can keep riding outside throughout the cold season if you follow some simple advice.

It's all about where you ride, when you do it and how you dress.

Discover our tips and tricks below and scroll down to check out our Winter Riding in the Alps collection: road and gravel loops we love to ride when the big mountains passes are closed.

All of this is based on many, many years of making mistakes and freezing our butt as a result, so it’s gotta be good.
