Strenuous ride around one of the most beautiful panoramic mountains in Switzerland with a best view guarantee. The air starts to get thin by the peak of the Alp Nova with its weather-beaten huts at 2000 m. The singletrail descent from the Obersaxen high plateau: top drawer.

From the start point in Ilanz (698 MASL) you get straight down to it. Our route leads into the valley towards Val Lumnezia and without the opportunity to warm up your legs, you find yourself straight into a climb. After the turn to Luven (998 MASL) it leads upwards again on an almost traffic-free asphalted road – the slope is constant and unrelenting. After climbing about a thousand metres, you get onto gravel and shortly after that you reach the Bündner Rigi mountain restaurant (1,607 MASL). Stopping here for a while to allow your gaze to wander over Ilanz and the Rhine gorge is a must. You have really earned the first descent of the day. Via Morissen (1,336 MASL) and Vella (1,243 MASL), you get deep into the Val Lumnezia – Valley of Lights in English. The second climb of the day also needs you to dig really deep and after around two thousand metres of climbing, the air will be thin by the Alp Nova at about 2,077 MASL On Mountainbike Route No. 90, you reach the high plateau of Obersaxon via a short singletrail passage towards Alp Stavonas (1,971 MASL) and then on to St. Martin (1,344 MASL). Staying on Route No. 90 a luscious Singletrail descent leads down to Zignau (840 MASL) to the Vorderrhein. From here, you roll sedately along the Rhine cycle route back to Ilanz, the first town on the Rhine (698 MASL).
