The Walser settlement Posterior Rhine (1,624m above sea level) at the foot of the Rheinwaldhorn is the starting point of the San Bernardino Pass, an Alp transit history classic. The pass’ numerous hairpin turns at 2066 altitude will accelerate every racing bike enthusiast’s heart. The ascent is steady, but doesn’t have any extremely steep ramps, so you can still enjoy the scenery. Once you arrive at the pass, taking a short break is well deserved. The Ospizio and the small lake invite you to relax. Soon, however, the anticipation of the rapid descent south to the Misox will have you jumping back into the saddle.

Let yourself be staggered by the diverse scenery during the 44-kilometer descent. The numerous hairpin turns will put a smile on your face. Surrounded by chestnut trees and grapevines, chill grotti along the roadside will startle you with their southern flair. Shortly after Roveredo, you’ll cross the canton border into Ticino and the last 20 kilometers will lead you to Biasca (301m above sea level) without having to put too much effort. The perfect starting point to tackle the Lukmanier Pass on the following day.
