Tour description

This trail is also marked as the Engadine Bike Marathon on an Engadine bike map and focuses on the elevations around the central part of the Upper Engadine. In 2005 «Bike Trail 670» was also marked out under the same name. While part of it is identical with this tour, other parts do deviate from it. Currently this route has not received final approval (and is not marked out) in all its sections. Wonderful views of the alpine scenery and of the Engadine valley floor are our reward for the lung-busting ascents, descents via the World Championship ski slopes of Corviglia; the forest trails on the other side of the valley are perfect for cooling off, and there is a varied selection of tracks and trails to set the biker's heart racing. In a word, a wonder-tour.


Variants

Option A: Bypass the forest trail to Champfèr, which is now barely ridable towards the end due to the steep gradient.
Other options: although the tour can be done in both directions, the direction indicated is the recommended one. It is also possible to start and end the tour at any one of a number of places, which means the route can also be travelled in stages.

  • Eine schöne Tour, die wir in Bever gestartet sind. Hinauf zur Marguns gehts noch gut fahrbar, wenn auch teils steil. Ab Marguns dann zunehmend steil und für uns nicht mehr alles fahrbar. Auf der Corviglia war für mich wegen Rahmenbruch auch erst mal Schluss. Mangels Bikeläden (Sonntag) mussten wir per Bahn nach St. Moritz und dann vorsichtig nach Pontresina fahren. Ab dort dann mit Mietbike noch die Tour " Fuorcla Surlej". Die gefahrene Strecke ist fehlerfrei in GPS-Tracks.com verzeichnet.
    Tendency: Steile Passage nach Marguns hinauf Richtung Corviglia.
    Special: Herrliche Aussicht über das Oberengadin. Sehr viel Publikum auf der gesamten Tour.
