Racing Bike Tour to the Jaufenpass Mountain Pass

General description

The Jaufen Pass mountain pass connects the Passeiertal Valley with the Eisacktal Valley, and is one of the shortest connections between Meran/Merano and Sterzing/Vipiteno by the Brenner Pass mountain pass.
The starting point for this racing bike tour is St. Leonhard/S. Leonardo. With many switchbacks you climb the mountain with a gradient of approx. 12%. At Walten/Valtina the road bends towards the pass, providing a wonderful view from many sides, rewarding your strenuous pedaling. Descend either towards Gasteig/Casateia or back into the Passeiertal Valley the way you came up.
