It starts at the train station in Chur and you have the choice: Crank yourself or let the Postbus do the first climb? A little decision-making aid from me: If you take the post bus, you will miss a distance of around ten kilometers and about 800 meters in altitude. Then your tour would start at the bus stop in Tschiertschen - and don't worry: there is still enough climbing up to the Ochsenalp. Once at the top you have the opportunity to fortify yourself with the finest views.Then it goes a little more relaxed and you have enough air at around 2,000 meters to enjoy the really great view to the fullest. Then it gets steeper again: On the way to the Hörnlihütte you deserve the next rest with a panoramic view and the long descent down to Lenzerheide, which is a real classic here. At the middle station of the Rothorn Bahn you can reach the beautiful bike park Lenzerheide and choose from different runs of the bike park. Once at the bottom, the Heidsee invites you to take a break with a postcard backdrop.You now flow on relaxed trails towards Tiefencastel, where the question has to be answered again: calf power or post bus? The Postbus takes around 15 minutes. If you want to drive yourself, this will certainly take a little more time for around 13 kilometers and 500 meters in altitude. In the end there is another promising descent, which runs on gravel and quiet asphalt roads and therefore offers hardly any driving demands. When you arrive in Savognin, you can jump into the beautiful lake when the weather is good and the route spits you out. On site you are guaranteed to find the right accommodation from the campsite to the hotel and there are enough places to stop for refreshments and shop.
