The classic local route with 1,000 metres of climbing where you ride around the stunning Swiss Grand Canyon. The route takes you down to Tamins via Trin Dorf, then over the Rhine and up a small climb to Bonaduz. Here you turn right on quiet roads to Versam. A gentle 3.5km climb averaging 3% warms the legs before the climb to Versam itself. The hairpins on the climb to Versam average over 6% and once through the village of Versam you start a wonderful descent to Illanz. From here there is a 9km climb which winds itself up the other side of the valley back up to Flims.
