Biking Crans-Montana -Varneralp

SWITZERLAND | This monday we went biking with my dad. He had the advantage of an E-Bike which is very convenient for all the uphill parts. Our hometrail is still one of the best trails in Montana with an amazing view of the big 5s. Where: Crans-Montana, Varneralp and then all the way down to…

Mountainbiking Parpaner Rothorn

SWITZERLAND | We are still in Lenzerheide and enjoyed another trail today. We started on the Parpaner Rothorn, where the trail is quite challenging with big rocks, then it leads to a beautiful and stunning singletrail till Arosa. From there you pedal slightly uphill to Ochsenalp and then you’ll find an awesome trail till Tschierschen….

Mountainbiking in Lenzerheide

SWITZERLAND | Next stop and directly one day after the World Enduro Series: Lenzerheide. The weather was still perfect and warm and everything is in beautiful fall colors. So we went to Lenzerheide and did the Welschtobel/Furcletta trail (41km, including twice a cable car). I did it two years ago when I got my first…

Mountainbiking in Laax

SWITZERLAND | Flims/Laax is famous for mountainbiking and Carlo has never been there. So we went for the two well-known trails “Runca” and “Never ending”. We wanted to ride just a little bit, because it was supposed to be our rest day. We were tired from the weekend. But at the end (and 5 hours…

Finale Ligure & Oltre Finale

ITALY | The weather forecast wasn’t promising for the week. That’s why we decided to go again to one of our favorite places. This time our focus was on climbing so we went straight to Val Pennavaire. It’s a wild valley, not much to see, but boy it has over 2000 climbing routes! Not to…

Biking the Brazilian

SWITZERLAND | I remembered only that it was one of the best trails I’ve ever done. So I had to do it again. The trails goes through the beautiful Vallon de RΓ©chy. From the platform you need to hike up for about 1h. From the Col de Cou the fun part starts and continues all…

Mountainbiking Nessel

SWITZERLAND | This trail is still one of my favorites in Valais. The panorama is epic and the trail is technical, but not too hard. There were no bikers and almost no hikers, so we could enjoy it to the fullest. Where: You go up by cable car to Belalp (there is also a street…

Biking the Argentinian

SWITZERLAND | The weather forecast wasn’t great, but we wanted to go biking anyways. The Argentinian trail is 1760m uphill and 2830m downhill and we had 9h to do it πŸ˜¬πŸ˜… It’s one of the best trails ever, but unfortunately it suffered a little with all the bikers. On the way up it rained a…

Biking Plaine Morte – Sierre

SWITZERLAND | We had to wait one year to do this trail! Last year the cabin was closed the whole summer due to renovation and finally you can go again. The trail from the Plaine Morte glacier down to Sierre is one of the longest trails of Europe! We did 2610m descent and maybe 250m…

Biking the Sustenpass

SWITZERLAND | Biking down from the Sustenpass was a reoccurring discussion after my friends did this trail 2 years ago. They were talking about this epic trail every time we went to Hasliberg. But to do this trail you need to take the bus up to the Sustenpass first (1:22h from Meiringen). So it’s kind…

Biking in the Bikepark Lavarone

ITALY | We went to the bikepark in Lavarone which is pretty close to the house we currently stay. It’s the old house of Carlo’s grandma in Tonezza del Cimone and it’s in the small Dolomites. It’s actually the area before the Dolomites (like the pre-alpes) and it’s absolutely beautiful. There is not a lot…

Mountainbiking to Maras

PERU | We rented today mountainbikes to visit Moray with the special terraces where the Inkas tried to grow different vegetables and grains because the temperature is different (+/-10 degrees) on every terrace. And then the salt production in Salineras de Maras which is impressive and absolutely beautiful! Overall it’s a pretty easy trail, but…

Biking from the mountains to the lake

ITALY | Finally the weather seemed to be stable for the weekend. We wanted to do 41km from Molveno-Andalo-Cima di Paganella-Ranzo and back to Molveno. Apparently the tour is mostly done with e-bikes. Now we know why, the uphill parts are pretty steep πŸ˜… Where: Molveno, circuit, many other options are possible What: Amazing view…

Biking in Paganella Bike Park

ITALY | In Paganella is the biggest bike park in the area. Actually it’s the cities Molvena, Andalo and Fai together, that created the bike park two years ago. The trails are long, intersting, some are pretty hard and overall they are very cool & flowy. We bought a day pass (which means for Carlo…

Biking Montana – Varneralp – Varen

SWITZERLAND | I get this question very often lately: Why don’t you work a full time job? Well, first of all because I wanna have more time for biking, climbing and mountaineering. I wanna spend every day outdoor, in the forest or on a mountain. I want to appreciate the small things and live a…

Mountainbiking in Finale Ligure

ITALY | We are once again in Italy, more precisely in Finale Ligure. We packed our bikes and the climbing stuff and drove down to the place of happiness. Nothing is like the trails here! We did Fast&Furious and (my favorite) rollercoaster. We went up by legpower and didn’t use the shuttle! πŸ˜‹ In total…

Mountainbiking in Saint Florent

FRANCE | Today we went for a mountain biking tour, because the weather is still unstable and it rains every day. We started directly at our Camping and ended in the harbor of Saint Florent. It’s a really awesome trail with a few passages where you have to carry your bike. The view is amazing…

Bikepark Bavella

FRANCE | In Bavella is a bikepark with over 400km cross-country trails and 34 trails. Nicely organized by colors and very well prepared! It’s an amazing place to improve your biking skills. Where: Corsica, Bavella What: Bikepark with 34 trails in green, blue, red and black. Visit the website, such a nice example for the…

Mountainbiking in Santa Teresa Gallura

ITALY | Mountainbiking in Sardegna is more cross-country biking. There are no real trails and everything you find online is either too easy, too boring or on the road. So I won’t give you the exact trail, because it’s nothing really worth doing. I mean the view and the nature are spectacular, but the trail…

Mountainbiking in Baunei

ITALY | Since we took our bikes with us we wanted to test them in Sardegna. We knew we wouldn’t find a single trail, but maybe a nice cross-country trail?! We took one banana and 5dl of water because we wanted to be back in like 4h. But unfortunately it turned out quite different. We…
