Profile Buggenegg-west

This climb from Rickenbach to Buggenegg is an insider tip. The road is narrow and winding and therefore exciting. The surroundings consist of small fields and forests, which makes them very green and varied. There are quite a few houses and farms along the road. The relatively short ride (6.5 kilometers) bridges a total of 526 meters in altitude. The first three kilometers are quite steep on average (9.5%) and end with the steepest kilometer of the climb (10.7%). The remaining 3.5 kilometers are then much easier with an average of 6.8%. Finding the right route can be difficult. After almost 4 kilometers of cycling, 50-100 meter after passing a chapel, turn left and repeat this after crossing a forest when more than six kilometers are covered. There is no "Buggenegg" sign at the highest point.
