    One thing in advance: Don't panic if you look at the kilometers and vertical meters of the second stage - after all, there is the Postbus! Of course, you can do everything on your own if you like, but even for hard-boiled bikers, the final climb to the Maloja Pass on a mountain bike should be a little too much of a good thing. But one after anonther…You start at the picturesque Lai Barnagn bathing lake in Savognin and take a relaxed, warm ride along the river Gelgia. When the body has revved up, the route slowly picks up. It will be noticeably steeper, but also more beautiful. Completely without traffic, you slowly crank up through a shady forest area to the Marmorera lake and on to the cozy town of Bivio. If you are not so keen on climbing today, you can also travel the entire route from Savognin to Bivio by postbus. Only then is there no escape, your calf muscles are up to the Septimer Pass. But honestly: The trail over the old Roman mule track is so beautiful that the effort is completely hidden, even if you have to push a bit.Once at the top, a wonderful descent awaits you, which takes you through the narrow Bergell valley over beautiful single trails and historic mule trails to the idyllic village of Promontogno. You deserve a break here at the latest! Maybe even after work? If you want, you can take the Postbus to St. Moritz from here. The last piece of the stage goal Pontresina has to be mastered again on your own. However, the last around six kilometers are almost flat and are ideal as a cool-down program. If you are still motivated in Promontogno, you can continue cycling and only get on the Postbus in Casaccia.
