Feel the Flow – discover Switzerland’s biking region on your e-MTB

Mountain Biking Collection by Bosch eBike Systems

Arosa Lenzerheide is a paradise for bikers: Here, you can have fun on uphill trails surrounded by spectacular nature. Located in the Graubünden canton in Switzerland, the area is no secret among the mountain biking community. The UCI Cross-country and Downhill World Championships have been held in Lenzerheide for the past several years. So, if you are looking for a playground for your e-MTB, then look no further than Arosa Lenzerheide.

Away from the developed routes in the bike park, the region has plenty to discover. The historic villages, lonely high-altitude trails, crystal-clear mountain lakes, and traditional huts serving regional delicacies create a stunning picture-perfect idyll.

In this Collection, you will find eight routes that focus on uphill flow. With the extra help of your e-bike, you can easily climb the steep uphill sections to alpine pastures and rocky mountains without taking the cable car. Of course, die-hard mountain bikers can also take on the routes with their non-electric bikes. Just bear in mind that they may take a little longer.

    This fantastic circular tour takes you past four mountain lakes - a first-class nature experience. Your biker heart will certainly beat faster, especially on the single trail above the Schwellisee.The route starts in Arosa. From here it goes over the Scheitenboden into the Prätschli and on the Arlenwaldweg further uphill to the middle station of the Weisshornbahn. It is worth stopping here for the spectacular view towards Medergen. Especially at sunset, this is a special experience that you shouldn't miss.The path continues to climb steadily to the Carmenna chairlift and changes here to a short descent that ends directly at the Alpenblick restaurant. The perfect time for a little refreshment on the terrace.From now on it gets more demanding: A fast single trail takes you above the Schwellisee to the Arve. As a reward, there is now a brisk descent down to the bear bath before the single trails through the forest again challenge your skills.Shortly before the Alteiner waterfalls (a detour is definitely worthwhile), our route turns off and takes you directly to the Arosa reservoir. One last climb and you are back at the starting point in Arosa.

    Easy e-mountain bike ride. Great for any fitness level. Suitable for all skill levels.

    This mini tour is wonderful to do in half a day (including an extensive lunch break on the Furggaalp). Whether with an eBike or a mountain bike without a motor is of course up to you - the tour is not a technical challenge for both driving styles.From Arosa you go first to the nearby reservoir and then uphill via a forest road to the romantic Grüenseeli. There you can connect the bike briefly and take a small round on foot before you first drive down a forest road and then on a hiking trail to Furggaalp. There you can enjoy the Alpine panorama in peace.The way back leads along the forest road already known from the ascent back to the reservoir and then via the road back to Arosa.

    A varied, short tour into the Albula Valley. It is a lot of fun, especially with the eBike, because an ingenious uphill flow is created when you climb the single trails.On this tour you cross the natural pine and larch forest below Lantsch. In autumn the forest turns beautifully golden, but in all other seasons the forest is a beautiful piece of nature. Apart from that, the narrow single trails through the forest will make your biker's heart beat faster.You pass the small village of Alvaschein and then dive into the forest again on narrow paths. From Tiefencastel, the path runs very close to the banks of the Albula and you can see the water sparkling again and again between the trees. At Surava you finally turn around. It goes uphill and with a wonderful view over open meadows back to Lenzerheide.

    The route from Arosa through the Urdental to Lenzerheide and back over the Tschiertschen is extremely varied and perfectly suited for endurance and experienced bikers. Crunchy ascents, demanding single trails and rapid descents make this trip an absolute dream tour around Arosa and Lenzerheide.The starting point is the Obersee in Arosa. From here it goes first on forest and forest roads to the Carmennahütte. The gentle ascents are ideal for breaking in. Because immediately afterwards on the way to the Hörnlihütte it gets much steeper: Your stamina, strength and skill are required on gravel paths and snow groomer tracks.Once at the top, you can recharge your batteries in the Hörnlihütte and enjoy the view of the valley. The first ascent to the Hörnli hut can alternatively be comfortably managed with the Hörnli-Express.Freshly rested, you pedal from the hut via exciting single trails to the Urdenfürggli. The path through the unique Urdental has a few difficult passages that also challenge experienced bikers - but you will be rewarded with magnificent views of the Graubünden mountains on every meter.At the Scharmoin mountain station you will find a Bosch e-bike charging station and access to the Lenzerheide bike park. The ingeniously designed freeride trails have something for every skill level. After more than 1000 meters difference in altitude, you will arrive in Lenzerheide with a lot of adrenaline in your blood and trembling forearms.From Lenzerheide, things get a little easier again: Gravel and asphalt roads take you up to the Churer Joch, thanks to the eBike without major signs of fatigue. A breathtaking panorama of the Chur Rhine Valley and the opposite Calanda massif opens up on the Joch. Next, you can look forward to another challenging single trail towards Tschiertschen.At the Hühnerköpf mountain restaurant, you have the opportunity to supply your e-bike with fresh electricity at a Bosch charging station.

    Wide views, lonely mountain meadows and a perfect mix of narrow single trails and quiet forest roads - the MTB tour via Hochwang to Peisteralp is a real dream tour. Since there is only a small proportion of difficult single trails, this tour is ideal for eBikers or ambitious mountain bikers without an electric drive.From the starting point in Arosa you pedal along the reservoir to Litzirüti and on to Molinis. In Molinis there is a steep climb up towards the Hochwang ski house - no problem thanks to eBike support. Once at the top there is a break and refreshment in the Hochwang restaurant - the wonderful view is free of charge.Rested, you will continue cycling towards Peisteralp. After rain, caution is advised on the following route across the meadow due to the raised bog. The subsequent Schanfigger Höhenweg pampers you with the finest single trails and takes you directly to Peisteralp. A little tip: the Almkäse is simply heavenly.At the end there is still well-deserved downhill action: from the Peisteralp you rush down to Langwies. The last meters in altitude finally lead you through a forest back to Arosa.
