„I've been thinking about various aspects of this idea for a long time. I wanted to put together an alpine crossing for trekking bikes through the great Engadine landscape. However, it was important that the route not be too difficult or have too much elevation gain. And I've done it! At the final tour check, I was more than thrilled. Spectacular mountain scenery and great hotels – what more could you ask for?“
