    ABR Garage Ep 5: Motorcycle routes in the Alps

    Motorcycling the Alps is one of the most enjoyable activities you can do on two wheels. The region is a playground for bikers looking to combine their love of riding twisting mountain passes with some of the most dramatic scenery you'll find on Earth. 

    With this in mind, James and Bryn got together with the good folks TomTom to outline three sensational motorcycle routes in the Alps, taking in the likes of the Combe Laval, the Splugen Pass, the Stelvio Pass, the Sella Pass, the Maloja Pass, and much more.  

    If you link these three day routes together, you're in for one of the best bike tours of your life. The boys also discuss motorcycling destinations, places to stay, and where you can get the best hot dog with a mountain top view.

    Get detailed descriptions of the Alpine routes discussed in this episode of the ABR Garage, plus waypoints for your SatNav, .gpx files, and maps, in issue 62 of Adventure Bike Rider magazine. Get your copy today at https://www.adventurebikerider.com/shop/​
