Stories, information and comments from Bachtel climbers
Story by Rich from London, United Kingdom, submitted on 04/04/2012
You won''t find the ride from Hinwil up to Bachtel on any major tour. It''s just not very practical. But rarely has so much pain an suffering been packed into 6km. The sign that indicated 20% sections coming up is pretty demoralising after already having been through some pretty rough stuff. The upside is almost zero traffic, some nice views and a cafe at the top. Just be careful on the descent as the roads are not in great condition. A great detour if you''re riding round the lake and want something with a bit of spice to break up the drudgery.

Bottom line, a great early-season form finder.
