I'm considering 4 or 5 days road riding in the Swiss Alps. Does anyone have any recommendations for a good base for the good routes (e.g. Gotthard, Santesch, Albula etc.) ?
I get the impression the area's not as well suited to a choice of routes riding from your hotel as some places in the French Alps- anyone have any experience of this? Is car hire a good idea?
EDIT: Forgot to say this would probably be late August - anyone know how busy the roads get around then?
