The Glaspass is an insider tip. The MTB route no. 90 takes you from Thusis (680 m above sea level) past the villages of Urmein and Tschappina into the Beverin nature park. The ascent to the Glaspass (1846 m above sea level) is long, but in addition to steep ramps, there are always flat roads where you can relax a little. Once you arrive at the pass, it’s worthwhile to ride a few meters further to the Beverin mountain inn. You definitely deserve to take a little break here! You only follow the road down the valley for a little while longer now, and then turn onto MTB route no. 623 "Heinzenberger Maiensäss Route". This will lead you high above the Domleschg over an impressive panoramic path. From Obergmeind (1813 m above sea level) via Plau to Prau da l'Alp, you’ll encounter several short steep slopes, but the great view makes up for it. The rapid descent to Präz (1170 m above sea level) and Raschlegnas will definitely put a smile on your face. The trail leads you through Cruttis Tobel and Tartar back to Thusis (680 m above sea level).

Gibt es einen besonderen Grund, warum diese Etappe mit über 16 Stunden berechnet wurde? Stimmt das überhaupt? Danke. Andrew Terker
