Distance 59.9 km
From Chur you can follow the signalized bikeroute 255 "Brambrüesch" via Passugg and the Polenweg to Churwalden. The route continues via Mittelberg to Parpan and shortly afterwards you pass the lake "Heidsee" on the right shore and ride through the center of Lenzerheide. Now follows the descent via Lain and Muldain and finally to the entrance of the legendary Alter Schin, a road cut into the steep mountain flank high above the Albula gorge. The former trade route from the Middle Ages leads at airy heights and through rock tunnels spectacularly down into Domleschg. The southern-looking valley is characterized by rolling hills, orchards and numerous castles, a landscape that invites you to explore it by e-bike. Lake Canova invites you to take a refreshing dip in the water (bathing season from May to mid-October). The trail continues along the Polenweg with a view of the Rhäzünser Rheinauen, which are among the most intact floodplain landscapes in Switzerland and are of national importance. Behind the golf course of Domat/Ems with a view of the "Tumas" (the striking hills that originate from landslides and are under nature protection) then follows the last stretch back to the Alpine City of Chur.
