Penser Joch is a fun road in the Sud Tyrol region of northern Italy. We rode it north to south, and the ascent was great fun with the northern ramp being somewhat more technical than the southern ramp. Going downhill on the southern side the scenery is typically alpine wonderful, and there are more straight sections on which to enjoy it. In 2011 the road surfaces were quite good, though the road is narrow.
All in all, quite good fun!
