The tour takes bikers to Lain, Sporz, Alp Lavoz and throughout the entire region along what, for the most part, are tarmac roads, offering wonderful views into the Oberhalbstein valley. It ends with an exciting downhill race back to the starting point in the centre of Lenzerheide.
Lenzerheide - Sporz - Sissi - Spoina - Valbella - Lenzerheide
Ride south as far as the turn-off to Obervaz. Outside Lenzerheide, turn onto the canal towpath as far as the intersection with the tarmac road to Sporz. At the crest of the hill, there is a well paved road branching off to the clearing at Sissi. There, bikers have two options: Those who have not yet had enough can continue pedalling up the trail that snakes up to Alp Lavoz, while those who are already burned out can cycle straight down to the hamlet of Spoina and from there, via Voa Sartons, to the Valbellner Plateau. Then, after a gentle climb on the other side of the valley, the tour continues through a cool and shady forest to the Kleeblattkurve – or Cloverleaf Curve – after which it’s down hill all the way, right back to the starting point.
The tour is signposted: Follow the red bike trail signs marked Tour No. 604.
