Switzerland Tourism (ST) is organising the Ride the Alps cycling events in collaboration with local event partners and OCHSNER SPORT as presenting partner.

Between May and September, a number of Alpine passes will be closed to motorised traffic so as to make the roads exclusively available to cyclists of all levels. 

Participation / Entry fee (Ride the Alps Klausen is free*):

CHF 20 per event when registering online in advance up to one day prior to the event.

CHF 30 per event for later registrations on the day of the event.

Free of charge for OCHSNER SPORT CLUB members**

* However, flyers containing safety information and cable ties will be distributed in Linthal and Unterschächen, which all participants must either attach to their handlebars or wear in a visible position. For convenience, all OCHSNER SPORT CLUB members who register here before 23 September will have the flyer sent to their home address.

Participation as a team

Join up as a team of at least five persons, give your team a name and enter it when you register. One lucky registered team will win a bike crash course with OCHSNER SPORT coach Urs Gehrig.
