Upper Valais: Visp - Sierre - Saas Fee area in Kümmerly + Frey’s series of cycling maps published in co-operation with the Association for Transport and Environment and showing the official “Cycling in Switzerland” routes. The aim of the series is to present a network of routes with as few problems as possible caused by motor traffic.

Coverage includes Brig, Leuk, Randa, St. Niklaus, Grächen, Saas Grund, the Michabel range, Evolène and extends south to Täsch, just north of Zermatt.

The maps have a detailed base, with contours plus graphic relief and shading providing an excellent representation of the terrain. Routes are classified according to the density of motorized traffic, the difficulty of the terrain, and road restrictions. Unsurfaced roads are indicated, gradient marks show steep inclines, and local danger spots are highlighted.

The maps show facilities for transporting cycles by train, bus, ferries, mountain railways, chair lifts, and cable cars. Border crossings indicate those open only to hikers and cyclist during daylight hours. Bike rental facilities are marked and towns with special bicycle-friendly accommodation are highlighted.

Other tourist information includes various types of accommodations (campsites, youth hostels, “Friends of Nature” houses, etc), viewpoints, picnic sites, swimming pools, and places of interest.

Each title covers an area of approximately 60 x 42 km (37 x 26 miles). The maps have a 1km grid for GPS users, with latitude and longitude shown as margin ticks. Map legend includes English.

On the reverse, an index of towns and villages also lists names of geographical features such as mountains, alpine passes, glaciers, etc. Also included is general information on the country’s long-distance cycling routes and on transporting bikes by train (text includes English).
