General information
Road condition: good

Road description
[from Airolo to Ulrichen]
The first kilometers you pass small picturesque villages where many people still live their traditional ticinese life. Then the road becomes a racetrack (001 & 002 decided to renamel it to Martin 'Mad Max' Franz-pass) ...

Up there you have a nice view to the south (snow mountains)

The way down isn't any more spectacular than the way up but still worth the ride - after all a good connection between the Valais (west) and the Ticino (south).
