„You can't experience more mountain adventures on any crossing of the Alps. For four days, we'll be over 2000 meters high. The air is clear, the views are fantastic. In addition, we usually stay in good hotels. But the demands of the route must not be taken lightly. The Transalp Engadine is a true super tour, for which you need to prepare both your bike and your body in a diligent manner. The experience will remain unforgettable for everyone – I promise.“
