    Since you have already crossed the Alps, your calves enjoy the sheer endless descents on the last leg of the Graubünden route to Bellinzona. Just make sure your brakes are okay and that you keep taking breaks to shake your wrists so you do not cramp.Let's go to San Bernardino. You drive as yesterday on the main road, but because of the parallel highway is not too busy. First, it's a short uphill, before you still down the valley over the tree line in countless snaking lines between a breathtaking mountain scenery. Between Pian San Giacomo and Mesocco even on a small side street almost completely without traffic.As you descend hundreds of meters in the narrow valley of the Moësa, you feel like it is getting warmer, almost Mediterranean. Almost without noticing you leave Graubünden. Your stage destination Bellinzona is already in Ticino. It is the only purely Italian-speaking canton in Switzerland and has a unique flair. Like Norwegian fjords, huge lakes are surrounded by high mountains. On the shore you can drink a cappuccino under palms, which you then pay with Swiss francs. Pure holiday feeling.The tour ends at the station of Bellinzona. By train, you're in less than two hours in Zurich. The best way to get to Chur is by using the frequent post bus, which also carries bicycles. But maybe you also want to stay a bit and explore the charming old town with its many palazzi and piazzas. Or you drive across Lake Maggiore to Milano.
