I agree.It's not really taxing but for quiet climbing with no constant humming of motorcars passing you every 10 seconds it's perfect.Nice smooth roads and the descent has magical views to the Sarnen see and the Stanershorn

Story by Chris Patient from Zermatt, Switzerland, submitted on 12/10/2011
The Glaubernberg pass''s official red cyclists sign situated just out of Entlebuch says that the road climbs (unregelmässig) which means that it actually descends for quite a bit in the middle. See the above profile.This pass suits a strong strong cyclist who can cope with rhythm changes. A trained cyclist can break the hour up this pass. My friend Al Pittar did 1h 05 from Entlebuch. I do not like rhythm changes and object to descending only to have to climb back up again, but I loved this pass. The road surface is generally very good and the valley is beautiful. It is a pass with a lot of character. Near the top is an old sign stating that the road was originally built by the army. I stopped for water there. The" biezli" at the pass hohe is also worth stopping at before savouring one of the best descents you can do to Saarnen. What a ride!
